We went to the race meet on the 29th December. Everyone one had a great day. There were activities on for the children to keep them entertained before the races too.

Spent an evening here for the 'works Christmas do'. For an event with mass catering, it was well organised, went smoothly and the food was good. The entertainment was good and everyone had a great night. Would definitely be back if they do it again next year.

The Christmas event here was mixed. Service quite poor, food not very impressive, live music good but short. The best part was the bacon butties at midnight

Came here for work Christmas party and we were impressed. Food was decent for mass produced and drinks were not too expensive. That's always a worry when they have a captive audience. Entertainment was great as well.

Attended Christmas Live Event (Birthday Party). Although expensive it was a fantastic night out. Excellent meal especially as it was mass catered. Fabulous band, singers and dancers, good disco. Casino, fairground attractions and crazy golf broke the evening up nicely. Very well organised - would highly recommend

Booked a suite for my parent's 60th wedding anniversary on a race day. The pre-event preparations were first class. Staff on the day were superb and were allocated to our suite so any request (e.g. for drink orders) was dealt with immediately. Could not fault the venue or staff. Food (buffet service) was excellent - plentiful and good quality. Made... More

Attended christmas live tonight. Don't believe the adverts. No dodgems as advertised, and the live element of entertainment was roughly one hour in length with the rest of the evening being the resident DJ. Food was good, but hardly worth the ticket price. Depending on where you sit also depends on your experience. Some areas have the vision blocked by... More
