Previously had a dreadful experience at Cheltenham Racecourse (reviewed previously) but this time we were visiting the The Centaur to see Jools Holland in concert. The venue is generally pretty good and being fairly small you get a pretty good view of the stage. Easy...More

Wow what a racecourse very modern and up to date. Gets very busy for the march races. Plenty of food and drink places.
