    Enjoyed the evening. Food was very good. Particually the garlic pizzas and the mussels. Everything was freshly cooked and mains were brought out together for our table of 8. Staff helpful and friendly. Great work.

    Excellent service (friendly and efficient) and generous, tasty pub food . The only thing it lacked was atmosphere - the bistro space is rather bland.

    We regularly go to the Racecourse. Always good, Always spacious and a nice room. Food good value and service friendly. Best pub bistro around East Malvern. Did like the white tablecloths previously but sadly Covid has culled those. But still nice.

    3 families only in dining room. Waited for menus. Told what they had run out of and not to order - including no vegetables available apparently. One of the specials dessert had run out also. Not even busy. Sat with pur finished plates for 15 minutes and no other diners left in the bistro. Overpriced for the dining experience and could have chosen better.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at the Racecourse Hotel. Ambience was good, staff excellent, friendly and very accommodating. We had Seniors meals, and the food was really great. Dory fish grilled, excellent. It is no doubt a local hub and everyone was friendly and enjoying themselves. We did, and we'll be back!

    The Racecourse has become our monthly meeting place after moving from another hotel in area. Always busy (so book) and has a good vibe. Table service from friendly staff. Recommend this hotel

    We’ve been going to the Racecourse for family meals for a few years now so know the staff well and most of them have been there for as long as we’ve been going which says something about the culture at the Racecourse. The service is always excellent and we love the food. Good kids menu too. Highly recommended.

    Ideal for a quick family catchup with tasty fare and wine to enjoy. Booking was made on line the night before which worked very well and the service we had was prompt and courteous

    Dined here many times, got tired of it for about 18 months. Have been back a few times this year and a bit disappointed that as a senior the meals are the same old ones. We get a very good deal at the Blackburn Hotel and worth the drive. Have checked all the place around on the web and have found better selections. Why not a plain old roast and vegs, who wants to cook a roast for 2 very often.

    Birthday event. Staff very good, food was on the whole good with only one very average dinner - a Burger that was below par. The other two meals were very good. I will definitely go to the Hotel again.

    The Racecourse Hotel Bistro is a favorite dining spot for us. The service is wonderful, the menu is delicious, the care taken with new and old clients is of the highest order. We book weekly and enjoy so many items on the menu. The bathrooms are spotless and they do it just right with regards to making people feel special, and safe in these covid times. Simply exceptional Bettina

    The staff are always lovely, nothing is too much trouble. The food was very good and good value, particularly the seniors meals. Also much appreciated is the quietness, you can hear your dining companions without the need to raise your voice

    Limited COVID menu was interesting. Bruschetta was a little disappointing, but steaks and Affogato were great. Service from Tramancaa (or similar) was exceptional, so friendly and efficient. Ten points to her. Restaurant appearance is quite pleasant, but men’s toilets need a bit of updating.

    Alwaus a very enjoyable experience. The meals were beyond pum fare and the service excellent as usual. I like the ambience and as I have said in the past the best hotel in the area.
