Our first visit to the race course which was good. We booked a table in the Gold Cup which had ok food and it was good to be able to go in between races when it got cold and wet.

Efficient Coach Parking and entry into the venue. Had tickets for Tatrersalls and enjoyed a lovely atmosphere. Plenty of food stalls to fill the gaps when required. Bar service was a little on the slow side but not a major issue. Went to the Guinness...More

Cheltenham racecourse is expensive - we all know that. But the latest visit, left me frothing at the mouth! £6.50 for a sausage roll, £3.30 for a small cup of less than average coffee. Very bad form.

Previously had a dreadful experience at Cheltenham Racecourse (reviewed previously) but this time we were visiting the The Centaur to see Jools Holland in concert. The venue is generally pretty good and being fairly small you get a pretty good view of the stage. Easy...More

Club enclosure tickets also give you entry to the Centaur Bar where there is a lot of seating and also where the bands play after the meeting. Gets very busy but lively atmosphere. Hope this helps.
