My wife and I decided to take in a day at Pontefract races on a recent trip to the Peak District. We booked and pre paid for our tickets at £15pp which is a saving of £10pp, which I thought was great value. We booked in the Premier Restaurant with a table overlooking the race track, finishing line and the winners enclosure, (booked in advance £15pp) again, I thought this was superb value, as it gave us the option of being undercover if bad weather was forecast. (Although it was a glorious September day) The staff in the restaurant, were fantastic, looked after us extremely well and the food was very good. My only negative comment from the day, was the fact we had to walk out to the Halfords car park to pick up our booked taxi. We recently attended the bank holiday meeting at Goodwood, and I would point out that value for money, Pontefract comes way out on top.

We stayed in Pontefract at an hotel about a mile and a half away from the race course. The taxi fare was only £3 to reach the racecourse. It cost £17 to get in the racecourse and we were then next to the unsaddling enclosure. A picturesque racecourse with friendly staff, we felt at ease immediately. The food was delicious, and it was easy to get served at the bar. Overall a great day out, and we were in profit.
