  • Enjoyed the day apart from paying £88 for a bottle of Prosecco. Also had to wait nearly an hour to get served later on.

  • Love Donny races and cannot really fault it. Great for the spectator , great viewing areas good parade ring etc etc BUT the only downside is they have no staff. You queue an eternity for a drink...

  • The family day there is great for the kids. There were indoor activities and the fair outside (you'll need deep pockets). Adults pay for entry, kids are free. There's lots of parking across the road and a large open air carpet a 2 min walk down the road. There's food and drink. Lots of outdoor seating plus several races. A good family day out especially when the weather is good
  • Lots of facilities, free car park was on offer, would have been 5 star, but they charge you for some plastic glasses which I can understand but then the cleaning staff, who I must also add, don't want to be there from the frown on their faces just collect them from the table, and throw them away. They obviously hadn't been educated enough on the cost and benefits of recycling. Apart from that I enjoyed the experience. Didn't take long to get out of car park and missed all the traffic getting home.
