Really good day out!
07 September 2021
This was a Christmas present. (2019) With the pandemic, we have only just been able to enjoy it. Attended the Family Day at York. Always enjoy our day there. Very well organised with plenty of people at hand to help you if you need anything. We had the seafood platter which is so tasty and enjoyable and after the meal, we found a good seat where we could watch the racing. Beautiful sunny day too which is always a plus. Definitely going back next year.

My day at the races
16 August 2019
I had a fantastic day, all staff were very nice and polite and helped with anything we asked (especially how the bets worked). The food was lovely, we appreciated the dedicated waitress service which was available all day. Our table was right by the finish line with TV screens view-able from anywhere in the restaurant, also the big screen on the track was clear as crystal and gave us great viewing. I'll always remember my 50th Birthday present, a day I'll never forget!

Great Day Out
06 August 2019
We decided to pay for the upgraded meal package in the grandstand which was £14 extra per person but this gave us a really good view of the track and a three course sit down lunch. Service was really good and we were made to feel very welcome. The drinks in my opinion are are quite expensive but then you are a captive audience, you also have to pay an extra £8.95 if you want the cheese course instead of dessert which was a bit more than I would want to pay. If you wanted to gamble that was easy enough with individuals walking around before each race with tablets that printed out your betting slips. We had a really enjoyable afternoon and if you wanted to stay longer there was live music after the racing had finished.

Best gift ever
24 May 2019
I was a bit doubtful at first because you don't know how the system works or what to expect. However, from the time of purchase through to the day's event everything went very smoothly. Now, to the actual day, it was perfect. The staff were helpful, the meal was good and everything was just as described. A lovely day out. I would give this 10/10 thankyou

Really good day out
16 September 2018
Very organised and really enjoyable day at the races. Free car parking and plenty of welcoming staff to point you in the right direction or answer any queries. We had the seafood platter for lunch which was absolutely delicious (with a glass of fizz) The racing was really enjoyable and would totally recommend to anyone wanting a good day out.

Great day out
10 September 2018
We booked York race course, having been there before we knew the facilities would be good however through the buy a gift voucher you get access to the county stand and a meal....... it works out a lot cheaper than paying through the race course! The meal was ok....... I only say ok because we should have chosen the car very instead of the fish platter so the experience can’t be faulted through my mistake! The day was great and the only down fall for the whole experience was that there are only certain days that this experience can be booked........ no Saturdays and only some selected meetings....... we had to book a Sunday meeting so as to avoid taking time off of work....... if you are prepared for this then it’s a brilliant gift to buy someone or a great way to save money and get into the better parts of the race track yourself.
