It is genuinely wonderful to see this back open and to have people support it and, I am sure you can sense there is a but, and yes there is. It is understandable that, in the four years it has been closed, that there is work to be done with things like the [previously named] Winning Post Pub, it's adjacent... More

We had a great day at Hereford Race course. It was my partner's first experience of racing and he loved it. I've been to several courses but this will be one of my favourites from now onwards. It's very accessible, parking is plentiful and straightforward, its easy to find your way around and, as others have said, visibility is great.... More

One of few racecourses where you can see the whole of the track from any position. Cannot comment on restaurant because did not use it but the other food options are poor. Bar ok and access fair.

Hereford is friendly and intimate. There are no separated areas like most courses, you can stand and rub shoulders with the owners and trainers. Short walk from parade ring to race side or viewing areas and bookies. Not many outlets for tea or food unless you book the restaurant. Recently opened again. Worth a flutter on Hereford!

Could be used for so much more. Used at the moment by minority groups on horses. With a bit of planning could be used for speedway and dragster racing too.

Went here in October as the horse I own a stake in was running. Never been before but first thing I liked as the car parking was free...too many courses charge for this so was refreshing change.
