The bar and food in members has moved up a gear from a few years ago we used the underground/ground floor bar area in members and they have spent lots of money which was lacking before. Well done for the improvements.

“Vist reccomended”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

Have visited Ripon races several times over the years and have always had a superb day out. The view of the racing is very good from the main stands but from the seats high up in the county stand is superb. Would advise you to pay a little more & go in the county stand.
The fish and chips are lovely and always enjoy them.

“Good Day Out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

An enjoyable day at the race meeting last Saturday. The race course was easy to find, well signposted from the main road. Free and ample parking. £15 entry but cheaper for students and concessions. A reasonable choice of bars and eateries including the very popular old fashioned sweet shop. There are on course bookmakers and the tote so plenty of choice for betting. There was 7 races and a good quality field. No winners for me but my son won £100 so a good day all round. A really nice traditional racecourse in the country side, well worth the visit.

“Great day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

A lovely racecourse, well kept gardens and nice staff everywhere. The only fault, as is with all race courses, is the prices of the drinks. Not only is it highway robbery ( at least Dick Turpin wore a mask ) but the beer tasted terrible. When will these places learn, drop the prices and stop ripping the public off, maybe then you will get more people turning up.

“Great racecourse, fun day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

Liked that it is a well designed racecourse so you don't need to walk miles to see the paddock and then the race. Lots of food and drink choices and all very friendly.
