Been to watch the dogs a few times but this was my first time watching the banger racing. So much fun; the noise and atmosphere was amazing. However there wasn't as much 'banging' as I've seen at other places, just a lot of racing which was a bit of a shame

I think my title says it all. It was a really good evening and the atmosphere is so much fun! The stadium does look a little tired and does need some love! I'm going to miss the dogs at Wimbledon, however for now the free drink, entry and race card for 4 people made our evening extra special! Did I... More

Last night, four of us went for a greyhound. It is a great experience and everyone should try it once ( even if you are not betting ). On entry, the security was very nice and felt welcomed. The Stadium was clean and tidy, lots of places outside and inside. We didn't dine at the restaurant only wanted to grab... More

A brilliant atmosphere and great racing experience with lots of different types of car racing. Very exciting and dramatic. A great evening of entertainment and worth a visit sooner rather than later as it may not be there!! Go before you are saying that you wish you had.

A tired old venue which is falling apart at the seams. All said and done the main stand ( which is the only one that seems to be open ) is buzzing with atmosphere . Don't expect a top and tails experience as this is one for your average Joe Soap namely me . A great night out for the... More

I recommend this place because it is different, fun and you can get involved as much or as little as you want. You can book a table and enjoy the races while you eat the food (quite average but adequate) or just show up and have fast food. Plenty of drinks and you can bet through the betting companies and...

This was my first experience of live greyhound racing. We were seated and served a 3 course meal. I found the food to be of a high standard for the price. The service was also very good, with friendly, helpful staff regularly visiting our table to take drink orders and bets for each race. I would really like to come... More

Completely disappointed with the whole experience, spent all the time queueing to either get a drink or place a bet. Missed out on 2 races due to queues to place bet. Left after the 7th race. Life's too short to be waiting in line!!!!!!
