This claims to be Scotland's Premier Racecourse and it certainly is a 'premier' set up. The staff were friendly and helpful and the Bars and food areas were well staffed and queues were kept to a minimum. There are a fair number of options for food and drink and all at reasonable prices. Th racecourse itself is a great viewing... More

Had a good day at the races in early January. A good crowd attended but there is plenty of room to buy food, get a drink and put a bet on.

I went with some good friends on one of the hospitality packages where you received a voucher for a race card, food and a drink along with your entry. We went to the New Years meeting. I wanted to give the venue five stars but there were... More

We went to the races at new year.it was a good day out. However we arrived an hour before the first race and there wasn't a seat to be had. More seating should be provided for the elderly and disabled

I was with family in a private hospitality box at Ayr Racecourse on 2 Jan. 2016 and had a very enjoyable experience. The box was freshly decorated and the table was well set for lunch. The 3 course lunch of soup, steak pie and sticky toffee pudding was actually very good considering the numbers being served at the venue. The... More
