We would be delighted to hear from you but please check our FAQ'S first.  We apologise that we are not able to reply to queries which are clearly covered on this page.

 

What time do you open?

How does it work?

It's a Pub with an awesome Racing System and a full Arcade of great stuff to do.  Put some clothes on and get yourself down here! 

Can I just turn up and drive?

Absolutely, we’d love to see you, but it is dependant on availability.

What's the dress code?

Jeans and trainers are fine. Sadly, we don't allow fancy dress apart from special occasions such as Halloween and New Years Eve. 

Do we need to book?

Not necessarily, we are now back to full capacity so will be able to accommodate any size party at any time! If you still wish to book of course please do so via Bookings

Can we race back to back if we have a large group booked?

For larger bookings and groups, you may be required to enjoy refuelling breaks between a series of races in order to take on vital fluids and allow other drivers to enjoy the raceway.

Can we book the whole raceway for ourselves?

Moonshine Raceway is best enjoyed in the company of other racers.  Its a shared experience, which brings people together. The Four Thieves does offer exclusive venue hire (during hours when we are not ordinarily open) - Please contact The Four Thieves for this type of booking.

 

What’s the cost of each race?

Mon-Thurs: £3.50 for 1 Race, £9 for 3 races, or £15 for 5 Races.

Fri & Sat: £4.50 for 1 Race, £12 for 3 Races or £15 for 5 races.

 

How long is a typical race?

A typical race is competed over 15-20 Laps of our challenging Grand Prix circuit. Race time varies dependant on the standard of completion but expect the experience to last between 7 and 10 mins. 


Will we be able to drink and drive?

Hey - Don't Drink & Drive! (unless you're on the Moonshine Raceway!)  We have a well-stocked bar provided by Laines Brew Co - we've got you covered.

 

Can I cancel or change my booking?

Yes but subject to an admin fee.

Please understand we are a small business without a team of administrators and whilst we can automatically accept bookings, the process to alter any existing booking is an arduous manual process, which costs the business. The admin fee we are charging to make a change to a booking, is only a contribution towards the true costs to our business. Without the admin fee, the costs would have to be recovered through raising the prices of the bookings for everyone which we want to avoid. We thank you for your understanding.

Non-exclusive bookings may be refunded, re-scheduled or vouchered subject to the admin charge and venue availability with a minimum of 48 hours notice - via the Change My Booking portal.  Inside of 48 hours notice, your booking is Non-Changeable, Non-Refundable and Non-Negotiable.

I have a voucher, how can I book?

If you have a voucher (valid for 3 months from date of issue), please visit the 'Change My Booking / Book with a Voucher' portal. Follow the on screen form to make your booking. Please enter the details of who made the original booking so we can further verify valid voucher use. 

 

What if I am late for my booking?

If you're running late, there is no need to let us know, we'll do our very best to accommodate you for as much time as remains of your booking but we are unable to offer refunds for missed bookings.

Can my group book and pay individually?
Yes, Individuals can make separate bookings for the same slot up until the slot fills up. It is however best to book the group as one, to confirm that we have the appropriate capacity for your numbers. This is ensures no one gets left out.

 

Is it a bit like Go Karting?

The Racing Bug experience is much more vibrant and interactive than go-karting. The action is as engaging to watch as it is to participate in and with drivers seated shoulder-to-shoulder the emotion of the experience is evident at every turn. Our race vehicles are all precision performance matched and The Racing Bug is a shared experience that you’ll never forget. Wouldn’t it be great if all motorsport took place in the Pub!    

 

Is it a bit like Scalextrix?

Imagine Scalextrix where you’re not stuck in a groove! Then add real steering and pedal controls, precision race timing and no need to keep retrieving your car from under the sofa. The Racing Bug is real motorsport, miniaturised.

  

Can I book a table?

The Four Thieves accepts table bookings for up to 6 people. For Table bookings please go to The Four Thieves site: https://www.fourthieves.pub/bookings

Are there any age restrictions?

The Four Thieves welcomes children but is designed as an adult environment; under 18's must be supervised by an adult and are asked to leave the venue at 8pm daily.

The Four Thieves operates an over 21's policy on Thursday to Saturday evenings.

 

Does my booking Guarantee me entry to the venue?

Booking does not guarantee entry, as ever right of admission is at the discretion of the management.  Management’s decisions are final.

We operate bookings on a first come, first served basis. No Refunds will be offered on refusal of entry. 
 

I didn't receive a confirmation email when I booked?

Check your spam/junk folder, you'll receive a confirmation email from our booking form: appointments@wixbookings.com, Terms & Conditions from info@theracingbug.co.uk in addition to a Paypal payment confirmation too.

Can we book the raceway for Christmas parties?

The festive season can be super busy so The Four Thieves will have special seasonal packages (some of which will include the racing of course!). Please go to the The Four Thieves site to book these:
