Were here for an office party - decent size room with an area for disco after the meal which was pretty good. The main course I had was salmon with capers which was very good but then let down by a panna cotta masquerading as a cheesecake, also it rather tasteless. Also a very poor choice (ie. lack of) good... More

This year we decided to attend the Worcester Racecourse fireworks display. Having the fun fair to play on before the fireworks was really nice and the children really enjoyed it. The fireworks were really good with the only issue being the marshals who just did not control the viewing line efficiently, so just as you found a good spot they... More

Very little effort made with decorating the venue, had a 3 course meal, starter consisted of pate straight from a packet, with 1 stale bread stick, Turkey main course was OK, and desert was disappointing, again pre-packed and not particularly tasty. Add to that the inflated bar prices £4.70 a pint - made for a @not as good as expected'... More

Maybe this place is popular with hardened race goers. However as a first time visitor I was less the enamoured with the whole experience. £9 the cheapest entry for which you get a crumby bar with only a few seats serving drinks only! Apparently you can bring your own food in. I also understand you can eat across the track... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave your review and for the feedback. Our Centre Course enclosure which costs £9 for entry is our most basic of facilities, designed to only offer drinks so most customers choose to bring a picnic. We do offer another enclosure, the County Enclosure, which costs £18 for entry and there are plenty of... More

I've visited a small majority of courses in the UK and I certainly find Worcester one of my favorites to visit for summer jumps racing. I was impressed with the fields and competitiveness of the races at Worcester and I'll certainly return. Unfortunately on the day I visited i forgot my Annual Members badge from Sedgefield so couldn't get the... More

Good day but you need the weather. Very pricey but worth it if you have a flutter and win. Drinks are expensive but that is like all Race courses.

My twin brother and his wife as part of their 45th wedding anniversary celebrations invited friends for an afternoon at Worcester Racecourse. We had a round table for 11 of us, a superb view of the racing and an excellent three course meal. We arrived at 12.45 and finished at around 5.30. Everything was spot on, good quality food, drinks... More

I wasn't sure what to expect as I hadn't visited a racecourse before or felt the urge to. I booked this as a birthday treat for my husband who likes an occasional flutter & thought what a change it would make from the norm. It turned out to be far better than I expected. We had such an enjoyable evening... More

Really small compared to York or other larger race courses but a very positive atmosphere! Bar staff lovely and do all they can to please. Food is limited as snack bars are the main food option though they look good, my advice eat in town then come to the course.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, you are right we are a small but very friendly local racecourse and we are glad you enjoyed the atmosphere. We do have a restaurant on-site if you are looking for more than a quick snack, we hope you will come back another time to visit us again. More
