Fantastic Experience
Oct 2019
If you have little or no experience in horse racing and have always considered it, then Nottingham is a superb place to try. A beautiful setting with wonderful views. We were welcomed by a bright sunny autumn afternoon. First stop the rails, where we took in the gorgeous aroma of the freshly cut grass. The whole course was amazing. Our choice for the day was lunch and drinks in The Sherwood restaurant overlooking the course (right on the finish line). Very nice, well-presented food, and a good wine list. Wonderful friendly service throughout our stay as well as easy, helpful betting on the Tote. The restaurant offers lots of TV's with up to date info on races as well as easy access to the stands to soak up the fabulous atmosphere of the racing. Absolutely fantastic.

Vintage Carnival
Aug 2019 • Family
My Sister, Neice, Grandmother and I attended the Vintage Carnival held in August, the tickets were fairly priced. The event was very well organised. The music was fantastic! The outfits and dancing was brilliant. The stalls were great and so were the cars. Sadly the rain reared its ugly head but we didn't let that dampen our day. Lovely day, really hope it's on again next year!

Lovely Racecourse
Aug 2019
This is an excellent racecourse for watching the races but in any event the huge TV allows all to get equally excited or disappointed. Just a short bus journey from the city centre it wasn't too busy when we called but the racing was good. As ever with racecourses the price of the drink was borderline prohibitively expensive not so much because we couldn't afford it but rather it's more the fact that lots of people arn't keen on being unashamedly ripped off - but nothing too different here from other racecourses - which isn't a good thing !

Some eateries and pretty gardens abounding to the back of the stands. Not too expensive to access ...... but don't go for a skin full !

Fantastic
Aug 2019 • Couples
We went for the Tuesday afternoon racing. We were staying in Nottingham centre so took a short taxi ride to the racecourse, recommend you book for your return journey or wait wait 3/4 of an hour like we had to. The racecourse was stunning, something for everyone food and drink wise, great to see lots of children. A great race card, lovely afternoons racing assisted by the good weather, we enjoyed it so much we are coming again.

A terrible day to go racing as the weather was bad!
Jul 2019 • Couples
The staff were very good as they usually are at all racetrack but with the weather being overcast, colder than usual and showers its not the best track to be sitting in a wheelchair.
We knew the rain we drove in from Chepstow was coming our way but I like to see the horses and there is no where under shelter to be able to see the track and I ended up watching the third race in the bar. We left early in between down pours and got home just in time for the rain to follow us again!
This is wheelchair friendly but I don't think I would go again unless the weather was going to be dry!

Thank you for your review. If you do decide to come again on a rainy day I would suggest making use of our Centenary Bar which overlooks the track and has lift access. Hopefully we will welcome you back to Nottingham Racecourse in the near future. kind Regards, James Knox

Long Wait For Drinks
Jul 2019 • Friends
Had a good day out to Nottingham racecourse. It is a fairly small set up but a well maintained course. However we waited 45 minutes to be served with our first drink and a good half an hour for each other drink. The bar staff are extremely slow and this needs addressing. We missed one of the races because of this. There were plenty of food outlets but it lacked in bar facilities. This really needs to be sorted out.
All staff were so helpful and friendly especially on the entrance with the scanner operators.
I would come back here in future but the queues at the bar needs to be looked into.

Evening Racing
Jun 2019 • Couples
We decided to go to Nottingham Races , so before the event I looked online and found that Nottingham Racecourse offered a discount and a variety of packages for the evening racing. I decided to book 2 Grandstand tickets with a pint or soft drink and a hog roast for £15 per person. So as the event was near I choose to pay £2 to collect my tickets on the evening from the Racecourse ticket office. On arrival this procedure was very simple . The package I purchased was well worth buying online in advance as on the day the entrance fee was £15 a pint was £4.70 ( with £1 refundable if you took your plastic cup back to the bar) and a hog roast was £6 , or you could have a fish and chip package . All the staff at the Race course from start to finish were very helpful. There were staff going round constantly cleaning the outside/public areas. It was a wonderful evening and we will be booking online to attend again very soon. We also booked and stayed at the Nearby Colwick Hall . Which is in walking distance to the Race course. If you book a superior room there you get a room with a view and can see the Race course etc. Well worth a stay .

Ladies day
May 2019 • Friends
Not a bad day out, nice venue. Parking a bit hectic and a bit pricey for food and drink - but I guess that's to be expected. Will go again but for the family day to see how that is

GREAT DAY OUT!
May 2019
I have never been to a Race Meeting before and wasnt entirely sure what to expect. This was due to be a quiet day in their calendar and we were lucky to have excellent warm, sunny weather. All the facilities were outstanding and the staff were friendly and helpful. The food and drink was also very good and not unreasonably priced. The racing was fun and I would recommend this day out to anyone.

Racegoers beware
May 2019 • Friends
Nottingham is a well maintained racecourse which I have enjoyed frequenting over the years. Having recently attended Ladies day I can safely say, however, that this is definitely not an occasion for the serious racegoer. The event is attended by mainly under 30s in their best Primark sale rail fashion, many of whom  are just intent on eating fast food and consuming too much alcohol. Having little interest in the racing their often rowdy behaviour impinges on your enjoyment. Moreover, having suffered a Club 18/30 afternoon only to have to negotiate a chaotic and strictly dangerous car park when attempting to leave was a further frustration and disappointment. Would not attend again on an 'Event’ day.

Thank you for leaving a review. Ladies Day is our busiest day of the year but we do have 22 other fixtures with the dates ranging on these, so something to suit everyone. We have taken the comments on board in regards to the car park and we have a new team in place for this for our future fixtures. Kind Regards, James Knox
