We were invited to a day at the races as part of a 60th wedding celebration. The day began at noon and the family had rented a private box to accommodate 32 of us. From the time we arrived the staff were really friendly and helpful and this set the theme for the following 6 hours until we left. The... More

We had the hospitality package in the Empress Suite. It was a great venue with a good view of the racing. The food was old fashioned and unimaginative. It was school dinners standard and I expected something better for the pice. We were on a shared table of eight and the cheese and biscuits came on a slate that had... More

Held our Christmas works party here and despite a few issues prior to the evening, it went pretty well. Food was OK bearing in mind the numbers being catered for. Shame that when you visit the bar downstairs you can't add drinks to your tab upstairs - would have made matters much easier for our group. Other than that, everybody... More

I have been here for horse racing, sausage and cider festival, even a trade show. They do their very best to accommodate for the varied events. Everything is always well presented and the staff are very helpful. Very popular events parking and traffic can be an issue so plan ahead get there early.

Went to Towcester greyhound racing in the evening with a couple of friends and all of us had a really good time. The bar was warm and welcoming and food was available.

Went last night with a few friends and ended up leaving without even having a drink, 30 minutes at the bar and still no drink! Awful spoke to the supervisor and they just said well leave then, so we did, do not recommend will never return.

£15 for a table in theEmpress Suite, curry, free pint and £2 bet. Excellent value. Curry was only average though. Coffee and tea expensive at £2 per cup. Not many people in probably due to it being January. We just about broke even on the racing. Good night out

My sister organised this for our birthday. We had a private box with a viewing balcony and tv to watch the races. You get your own tote person coming to take bets and a private bar for when you have finished the free drinks provided. The food was lovely and very generous portions. We all had a lovely evening, made... More

Went for New Year's Day racing today. Despite the terrible weather we had a good time and also managed to win a few pounds! Food was reasonably priced as were the drinks. Nice friendly atmosphere.
