Not a bad night out, if you're going for a few pints in plastic cups and are prepared to lose a few quid. It's a bit of a roll the dice, but you can have a good laugh.

When I first got an invite to celebrate a child's confirmation at the dogs I thought they were crazy! But it turned out that they provide private suites with plenty of televisions so you can see the races no matter where you are sitting. Hot food and sandwiches are part of the package. Everybody including the kids had a really... More
