We visit Wincanton racecourse as a family regularly and we all love it! There are enough races throughout the afternoon, each one about half an hour apart which gives enough time to look at the horses in the parade ring, each pick out one you like, place your bet and get up to the stands to watch them come in!...

We attended the course as part of a hospitality day hosted by elite racing. We have visited other courses and their restaurants on similar events over the past few years, however we have never had such great catering which was well organised. The staff were great. Wincantons in house caterers are to be applauded for their high standard.

We arrived at Wincanton on a cold crispy morning leaving our over night bags at the hotel. We decided to walk the 20 minutes to the course which was quit hilly but invigorating. We had booked a meal and was very pleased as the out buildings were very cold. The whole day was extrememly enjoyable a lot of punters but... More

Been there on Boxing Day with family. Really had great time cheering and betting on our favourite horses and jockeys. Nice selection of food stalls and good overall organisation.

We went to Boxing Day Races for the first time for several years. The overall experience was good but the building was cold. We bought a sample pack of betting slips for £10 each didn't understand them because they turned out to be different courses and were accumulators which meant they were all written off. We enjoyed the basic betting... More
