This bears all the symptoms of a chain pub-by numbers operation of the pretend gastro Vintage Inns/Chef and Brewer school of thought though this one doesn't bear any branding. Even so if you've been in one of those you'll know what to expect and can lower your expectations accordingly. The whole operation is set up for eating: if you just want a drink you'll probably end up outside in the cold, you're on a racecourse so there's always a howling gale. The only real reason for visiting is on a raceday but I doubt the service will be any quicker nor the prices cheaper than the bars on course.

Given its history and location they could have made much of this pub. What a shame.

We had lunch in the restaurant with a few friends and found it all very enjoyable. A warm welcome, good service and great food

Sits in a prime location with glorious views over The Downs and racecourse. Pleasant well appointed garden to the front but the pub interior is rather modern and soulless. It seems to be more geared for dining and probably rakes it in on pleasant Sunday afternoons, Mothers Day etc not to mention race meetings. London Pride and Flowers IPA (who brews this now?) with other handpumps unused. Sparklers on the handpumps.
I'm sure it ticks the boxes for the target clientele but location excepted, its not my kind of place.
