Nice little racecourse

The racecourse is just a short journey out of Stratford upon Avon town centre, it's an attractive little racecourse and nice for a day out national hunt racing.

We come to Startfordford races once a year, in our view the best small racecourse in the uk. Only one down side is its so hard to get a taxi to pick you up. A shuttle Bus to city center would help

Though this is appears to be a tented environment and may be an issue on the colder days we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on a sunny day. What strikes you first of all is how neat and tidy all the surrounding lawns are and with benches placed to help. We had our meal from a menu with four options for each... More

firstly get a taxi from the town as it is a fair walk. The course is very good with good amenities. Not a lot of places to eat and burger van is overpriced.

Thank you for taking the time to review our racecourse we are disappointed that you consider we have not many places to eat. We have 3 restaurants, 3 mobile catering concessions and numerous small eateries within the bars. We are reviewing all of them when we start racing again in March and will take your comments into consideration. Thank you. More

We visited this place for an early evening meeting with a coach load (both staff & customers) from our local pub. It is a relatively small racecourse offering reasonable (if somewhat limited) facilities, with the special charm that comes from its lack of size. It was certainly a successful evening as we backed 5 out of 6 winners between our... More

We - a party of seven - booked a table in the Paddock Pavilion for the meeting on 3rd September. Given the changeable weather, it turned out to be a great choice. The restaurant is very smart indeed, housed in a posh marquee near the main stand and the winning post. We had a three course dinner which was excellent,... More
