About The Old Weighing Room
Guests can enjoy dinner and drinks in the unique surroundings of the racecourse - without it even being a raceday!
I booked a table a good 24 hours beforehand but 5 hours before we were due to visit I was called by one of the staff informing name that they could not accommodate us as the restaurant had been booked for a private event. I was disappointed but we were offered a table at the neighbouring Hilton hotel which was appreciated. It wasn’t quite the same as we had been looking forward to visiting the weighing room but at such short notice it was good to be booked in somewhere- hope to visit in the near future 🙂
The service was fabulous, above and beyond. We like the separate drinks area. The presentation of the food is fabulous BUT quality falls short. Food not seasoned. Lettuce on tuna starter dripping wet, causing plate to swim with water, leaves not charred as described in menu. Lamb main, fondant potatoes very undercooked and no broccoli, as described on menu. More care over food and this place could be amazing
Wow! What an amazing dining experience. We didn’t think that the food could get any better than it had been previously but it sure has and it was a really nice touch for the chef to pop out and say hello. Staff are lovely and attentive. We had a fabulous night.
Terrific service, needed more customers for better atmosphere. Food combination was interesting but fish could have been warmer. Otherwise good cooking.
Service was good but there was a distinct lack of atmosphere and only one waiting staff who had to work hard to serve all tables. We also had plastic, cling film, left on our potato croquettes, which was disappointing, but the waiter gave us a free pudding to make up for it.
Few people in, so unfortunately not much atmosphere, but it did mean we had great service. Really enjoyed the food. The cauliflower soup was delicious. Honest. Will definitely choose again if on the menu.
Fantastic service and excellent food. We will certainly be booking again very soon David Parkes
We went for my Dad's 80th on a Saturday night, we were early but we were the only table for most of our time there, it's a real shame as it's a lovely place and Doncaster isnt exactly fully of top class restaurants. The lack of atmosphere was made up for by the staff who were really lovely, especially the main guy, they were really accommodating and attentive, and the free race tickets for birthdays is a really nice touch. The food was good, some of the meat was a bit overcooked for some of our party and granola with fish is a odd even if Masterchef are doing it! But on the whole would recommend the food. The prices however are too expensive, especially the steak. I live in London but still thought the prices high, and the menu is quite limited. On the whole would definitely recommend trying it and would go back because of the service and the setting (must be great on race day) but only if prices are made a bit more reasonable. Hopefully a marketing drive will get more people through the doors to improve atmosphere as it would be a real shame to see it close.
Excellent night would highly recommend.
Absolutely amazing service, great food, atmosphere perfect, thank you
The level of service is excellent and the staff are engaging and professional. Food is superb and varied and brought to the table in a timely manner that makes you feel that you aren't being rushed
We had a wonderful meal here on Saturday evening. From arrival we were looked after and made welcome by all the staff. The food was amazing. I loved my trio of cauliflower starter and partridge main. My husband had the game terrine followed by the Venison. We will definitely visit again and have found a place on our doorstep that we can bring visiting family and friends to. Thank you so much for a very enjoyable evening.
Had we had the chance to try your dining experience, I'm sure we would have given feedback. However, our booking was cancelled by the restaurant by phone, after confirmation to me of the booking by email, and therefore we and our friends with a booking at the Hilton Hotel for the occasion, had to rearrange at short notice, a weekend that had been confirmed. To add insult to injury I had two reminders of our non existent booking at the restaurant, and now this request for feedback. I await your reply with interest.
Only 2 tables were being used on a Saturday night
This was our first visit but definitely not our last. The food was fantastic and the staff were friendly and attentive without being OTT. For the standard of food we thought the prices were very reasonable.
Would certainly come back !!!
Having joined another table of 6 we were most impressed by the Waitress as she kept our bill separate from the other 6. It seemed correct and ws presented to us for payment. We also thouht the whole evening, icluding service quality of food etc was very good.
Superb meal, service and all round top evening. Just a pity there weren't more people in the restaurant to give it a little more atmosphere. Come on people of Doncaster ........ you're missing out on a fabulous hidden gem.......get yourselves down to Old Weighing Rooms!!
Third visit, always excellent service and food!
Delicious food served in a relaxing, pleasant environment
Overall a pleasing experience if a little loud with a party in but better to have atmosphere than not. The food in main was lovely although 1 main dish was not to expectation but the person didn't tell me till after we left or I would have feedback at the time. Service was attentive and friendly so overall a good first experience...will be lovely in the summer when you can sit out...A little more racing memorabilia would be fab
Celebrating here was amazing ! The staff were attentive, friendly and couldn’t do enough for us. The food was outstanding and very well priced. Many of us will be back soon !
This was my first dining experience at the racecourse. The food was excellent with prompt and friendly service. I had a lovely Mother's Day treat thank you.
Great evening enjoyed by all. Food, service and entertainment excellent . Look forward to our next evening there with Michael in charge. Thank you. Bill & Pat Cunningham. 🥂😀X
The staff we amazing made to feel very welcome. Was my nephews 5th birthday and mother’s day. Food was excellent. We asked for extra veg and gravy and there was no issues in getting it. They could not do enough for us. Thanks
