Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

Our night was a works evening in the restaurant. Food was average nothing to impressive, would have preferred to spend the money on bets and drinks . Staff friendly , good value in the fast food area drinks reasonable .... And we won on a always trio!! £180 on a £3 bet which made the night!!

Mmmm, not sure about that! I know we're unlikely to earn a Michelin star or two just yet, but...

Never the less, glad you enjoyed the evening and what a good win!!!

Reviewed 30 July 2014

Good parking, excellent food, easy viewing, not loud, no delays between races, simple to bet if you wish, not compulsory.

Easy does it! What a nice way to put it (we may use that in our PR if that's ok?)

A lot of people think it's all going to be so complicated and that they need a masters degree in brain science and rocket surgery to understand the betting. Far from it, just choose the Greyhound who poos during the parade!

“Great night out”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

We have visited several tracks around the country and this is one of the best we have been to. The stadium is new and immaculate. We booked a table in the restaurant it was 17 for a three course meal and included entry and race card. The meal was good and the staff very attentive. If you haven't been to a track before don't worry the betting is explained and is very easy to do.Bets are taken at the table by tote runners and drinks can also be ordered so once you are sat down you can relax all night.

“Dogs great, food average”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

It was my first visit to this place. I had big expectations and was with a large group. We upgraded to the 3 course meal. The dogs and betting were really fun. The person coming to our table before every race to pay out (yeah right) or collect the nest bet was great. The waiters were really annoying grabbing at empty glasses every few minutes. The 3 course meal was average at best. I had salmon which was really overdone. My broad beans (an odd thing to serve I though) were like bullets. The soup to start (chancy vegetable) was dull and not very chunky. I had cheese after (an extra £1.50) and there was enough cheese for a week, and that was a bit over facing at that stage. Only 1 size glass of wine, and it was expensive. On the whole, not the great night out I had hoped. Oh, and I won 4 races, lost 10.

Looking on the bright side, you won 4 races!
Sorry to hear you weren't impressed with the food or service. It just goes to prove the old saying "you can't please everyone". Despite that, we do try, so it is a real shame we didn't hit the mark with you. I can assure you that had you brought any of these matters up with our restaurant management team, they would have bent over backwards to sort things out.

“Impressed”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

An enjoyable visit to the stadium and a pleasant meal, great value for £25 per head. It can get a little load but its great fun. A very obnoxious stag party near us was dealt with very efficiently by staff who had noticed their behaviour and in a professional manner asked then to go stand outside once their meal was done, no agro just dealt with pleasantly, all in all a great night out with family

We do like to think that we offer good value for money and try to ensure the quality and service exceeds expectations.
Sorry about the noisy stag group, we've all been there and we do like to accommodate everyone, but any bad language or unwelcome behaviour is quickly nipped in the bud.
