    Great experience, time flew. We found out so much about gin and it was fun choosing the botanicals to make own gin.

    First half - As fairly regular visitors to uttoxeter we’ve had tickets for every area from general admission to having hospitality boxes but for New Year’s Eve our favourite venue is the 1907 restaurant. Once again I couldn’t fault it ! The food was excellent and the staff considerately asking when you would like your hot food bought out knowing that you may be placing bets or watching the racing and didn’t want your food going cold. The restaurant was busy but never felt over crowded and the same could be said of the balcony. In fact the whole organisation of the day was second to none.

    Second Half - I’m not entirely sure you could class this as a complaint and how the racecourse could address it I have know idea. Racecourses through the pandemic have had a very tough time and need as many people through the turnstiles as possible but there seemed to be a definite change in the people attending this year. The stands seemed at times to resemble 40 or 50 stag & hen dos at a night club and at some stages it seemed to be more like a football match, I’m not entirely sure why groups of men would be singing football chants on the premier stand whilst the racing was taking place. Two ladies just along the balcony from us end up with their best dresses drench in beer when one of the groups of men must’ve had a winner and threw their drinks in the air. Unfortunately for the said group one of the ladies had a husband the size of a shire horse who ‘persuaded’ the gentlemen that they should be buying the ladies some champagne by way of an apology.

    So will I be going again ? Definitely ! A summers day at uttoxeter with a glass of pims is about as English a scene as you could picture and I will be going next New Year’s Eve but after that .........................

    Only one of our Hens had thrown an axe before, so for the rest of us it was a new experience. Jamie ensured that we had the best possible time, even though two axes went awol, whilst ensuring we were safe from any low flying weapons.
    A bonus was the laser combat! Several of us went into full COD mode, and became ridiculously competitive.
    Cannot recommend this place highly enough. There genuinely is something for everyone

    My daughter and I went llama hiking today, we had such a lovely time!

    Our host was very knowledgeable and clearly cared for the well-being of the llamas and obviously our healthy and safety.

    He had such a lovely way with the llamas, it was lovely to see.

    I highly recommend!

    The Centaur Sculpture is an outstanding feature, one of a pair of landmarks that give a great welcome to Uttoxeter, one at either end of the town's arterial roads. They both have great presence and hint strongly as to the town's past, but the bull is simply magnificent; well scaled, well designed, beautifully crafted.
    I have visited Uttoxeter for 45 years and enjoyed seeing it develop and gain a contemporary feel. The A50 certainly helps with your journey, making it quicker and easier to reach this historical market town.
    Yes, the new retail area is fairly standard form but this supports the older part of town well. Familiar restaurants and family orientated activities are there. Parking couldn't be easier.
    Within a short walking distance, the older town centre opens out, with a very small market being open on Fridays. The street signs are delightful, giving a good sense of farming across surrounding areas and that a cattle market would have been a regular feature here at one time.
    Don't just drive past - call in and surprise yourself.

    This is a nice church but for some reason all the gravestones have been moved. Some are leaning against the side walls whilst many are being used as paving slabs. Good atmosphere inside.

    The Uttoxeter War Memorial is an impressive monument to the local service members who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. It’s also where the fox hunters meet up to show off before they go out. I am not sure how often that display goes on. I got caught in the middle of it on New Years Day, while I was visiting. Try to see this memorial when that isn’t going on. There was loads of shouting and aggression. The memorial is beautiful though. It is very well kept and maintained, it’s a lovely display for the military heroes. It’s really nice in the morning on a cold day. I got there as the fog was lifting, it was quite a sight.

    The Horse and Dove is well supplied with a variety of independent beers and a variety of spirits. The atmosphere is lovely, homely and everyone who visits is made to feel really welcome....... I love it here during the day before going to the races or of an evening.

    People in the rink are lovely, smiley and helpful...but £7.50 for the use of a plastic polar bear to keep you up? A bit steep. That would be like charging to have the bumpers up in a game of bowling. A quid would be more like it.

    Took advantage of a day off and booked this course for the first time, took a friend who is a total beginner.
    Very easy booking system once I registered as a visiting member, pick my time and rocked up, really friendly pro shop staff gave me some guidance once I told him it's our first visit.

    Then let loose on an absolute beautiful picturesque course, nice forgiving fairways and the greens were in perfect condition.
    Some very long par5's and loved the naughty par3's great bunker positions.

    All in all a beautiful course great staff and easy process, definitely coming back.
