Went with a group of friends. Great atmosphere and the racing was good. The place was very busy and the wait at the bar was a bit of a pain. The place could do with a bit of redecorating, it’s a bit 1970’s... Decent night...More

Decent if you are in area & looking for a Sunday roast, serving lamb,pork belly & beef roasts. As just opened expect to wait a while between drinks & each course coming to table, lovely beer garden area.
