Visited for a midweek meeting in October. The racecourse is rather basic...and, as it lies high above the sea, it can get very cold and windy!

Saturday night fireworks were incredible! The best fireworks display we have ever seen! Well put together and some good music playing throughout- lovely atmosphere, rides for kids and fun fair type games. Food and drink vans, if it wasn't so cold we would have stayed longer! £10 per ticket on the door isn't too bad for how amazing the display... More

Brighton races really needs to get it's act together. Too few bar staff for a big crowd. Hardly any bar staff (again!!) White wine that is hideous & you can buy cheaper at Tesco. Toilets that are continually blocked (ladies) & handryers that don't work nor hot taps. (gents). Also, no extra entertainment on special racedays. It's a pity that... More

Came here to celebrate our friends 50th. They had hired a suite with a 3 course meal. The staff were polite and very helpful and the food of a good standard for mass catering. The atmosphere was fantastic and I can highly recommend this for a special celebration.

Thought we would have a nice day at the races, the facilities are poor, place is untidy and food outlets were 1) under staffed 2) no food! after the second race. We paid 11 pounds to get in and left after 2 races to get somethings to eat. I'm from Brighton and been to many racecourses, the worst I've been... More

This was a work social event and was good but I was expected a bit better. In particular the bar staff were pretty poor. They were all students with little bar experience and seemed very unsure and with no manager or supervisor to help them. I spent 20 minutes at the bar whilst other people arrived and were served straight... More

good fun, and glad I did it, but unless you know a thing or two about checking form, don't expect a return on investment!
