Having been going to Leicester races for many years the latest manager has made a massive difference here.The old owners & trainers bar is open and welcoming(closed most of the time under previous management) plus the food offering is very acceptable considering it is a catering company as oppose to an in house operation.Well done to all concerned.My friends and...

I have visited the racecourse for horse racing which was exciting and fun. I also attended for a works Christmas party and had a fab time. It also hosts gigs and concerts like 80s stars and ladies days. I saw Belinda Carlisle and Heaven 17 there! How exciting is that??

I went to a wedding reception here and it was awful. The beef was so stringy that I couldn't cut it. The prawn starter was a joke.

I went in Leicester Racecourse with friends and i didnt regret it. It was something different in order to spend your Sunday afternoon. So many people were watching the races in a nice environment.

As a group of 8 it was a good trip. We met in the Steaming Billy Bar, small but welcoming, a screen to watch the races on if you didn't want to loose your seat. We didn't win enough to go on a world trip but it was fun.

I have to say I was impressed with the Steaming Billy bar, you didn't have to queue for long to get served. I hate having to queue for a drink at the best of times. I don't think £25 per bottle of Prosecco was too over the top either. The weather was great, the entertainment was good. Looking forward to... More

Lovely night Tuesday just gone at the Racecourse for race night, great meal in the Nelson restaurant with lovely food and atmosphere. Drinks service at the bar was also great, also Phil one of the barmen provided second to none service, which always makes a difference. Can't complain about any aspect of the evening.

Came here with friends on a midweek evening meet.The first race was at 6:15,at 5:45 the bar staff were unable to work out how to get any lager pulled through the pumps.At 4 pound 50 pence for a warm lager it just wasn't good enough.I would return for the racing but would avoid trying to buy a drink.
