Visited with a friend for lunch. We only ordered jacket potatoes. A safe choice?? One was rotten and the other very over cooked. No check by staff to see if food was ok after we starting eating. On clearing the table we mentioned the rotten potato. The waitress said she would tell the kitchen. To be honest they would have... More

Called before going racing despite being busy service was good food good and reasonably priced.because it is so near the racecourse it is handy place to meet friends from other places to have food and drink before going to the course.

Heather was the lady looking after us , Despite the restaurant being very busy she was very attentive and looked after us very well without being fussy , Nothing worse that a waiter standing over you watching every mouthful you take. The food was quick to arrive tasty and hot . Down side was in the gents loo, the radiator... More

Pleasant dinner and good breakfast with comfortable rooms at the adjoining Premier Inn. Website rooms were noisy from next door service station but we found the windows well insulated and had a good nights sleep. Air Con in room if needed.

Called in on a Sunday morning. Things were a bit disorganised was our first impression. We eventually found ourselves a table as no one came to seat us. Food was better than the service although the sausage skin was really think. Not nice. Pastries were great and nice to have pikelets. Plenty of preserves to choose from and top up... More

As expected from a Table Table restaurant - the food and service was good. We ate here on 3 nights as we were staying in the next door Premier Inn. The hotel and restaurant seemed quieter than in previous visits (I'm guessing that this may be a result of Alton Towers being quieter) and the restaurant seems to be struggling... More

Have eaten in the Racecourse a number of times because it's so convenient but not again after the last visit. The food really is poor which as a result I spent too much time on the loo the next day.

Visited the racecourse as there was an Antiques fair taking place over the first weekend in September. Easy to find, good car parking close to station. Good facilities and very reasonable entrance charge. Definitely be back again when the next one is on.
