Great day out
Sep 2021
A great day out with my friend and it was her first ever trip to the races, from booking the trip to the end of the day everything went so smoothly.
We had our tickets emailed to us and printed them off, entry to the Grandstand was simple with no queues.
We had great views and plenty choice of bookies, two winners out of 7 races and 3 E/W seconds so can't complain.
As a driver though, maybe you could sell some bottles of alcohol free beer in one of the bars, there are a lot of people drive to the races.
The car parking was free even though advertised at a fiver and we were parked by an attendant around the 2 f post and leaving there were no queues/ From car park to entrance was a 5 minute walk.
My friend is already planning another trip

Great day out.
Sep 2021 • Friends
Attended Ladies day with 6 friends and had a thoroughly enjoyable day. Not too busy, fantastic weather despite a gloomy forecast and great racing.
Great also to see the jockeys prepared to stop and have a chat/photos with the public as the travelled to and from the parade ring.
Racecourse staff as usual were excellent.

Fantastic Venue
Aug 2021
Great concert atmosphere. Staff were really good, efficient and kind providing a light hearted atmosphere. It felt safe and very clean. The concert was fantastic. Rag n Bone Man! The security were great and when offered a bite to eat they were extremely professional in refusing any form of gratuity. Well done management should be proud of all the support staff and the safety they have acheived considering peoples fears around large venues following bombings and Covid 19. We had a greta time there.

A Good Day Out
Aug 2021 • Solo
I went to the recent Saturday meeting … Had a problem to start with as my e-ticket on my phone for some reason wouldn’t scan at the gate although I was quickly redirected to see a steward with a laptop who checked my code and let me in ok … The racecourse has good views from the stands and easy access to the parade ring … plenty of on course bookies to place bets with … Food and drink was expensive as you’d expect and I did see very large queues forming late on to be served … Course and grounds looked nice and in good condition … And I even managed a small profit on the day :-) … A good day out

Loved it
Jun 2021 • Couples
10/10 staff/stewards … friendly and helpful. Booked the home straight restaurant. On entering after escalators to level 3 I was politely informed that my jeans were not usually allowed and next time must be trousers…. Shown to our table and handed a glass of Prosecco…. Choice of 3 courses and to be honest i thought contract catering would be offered…. I was wrong…. All courses were fab.. restaurant standards apart from the chicken dish which whilst cooked well was bland. My pudding of caramel tart with blackberry and vanilla ice cream was outstanding.

Hour or so later followed by coffee and scones with clotted cream and jam.
House Sauvignon was poor but at £21.00 standard.

Overall excellent value at £95.00 per person including food and your table for the day.

Service was polite and always checking on us if we needed anything.

I go racing often and Doncaster is yet the best.

Well done

A day of queueing
Jun 2021 • Friends
If standing in a queue for half an hour to 40 minutes to get a drink is your thing then is is the place for you , missed most of the racing ! I'm guessing it was short staffed , a bit expensive for fairly average racing too !
