Racing At Home

Our Guide to the Perfect Picnic


No day at the races is complete without enjoying a spot of delicious food! Whether it is in one of our popular raceday restaurants or in one of the concessions we have on-site, we have something for every palate. Although you cannot be on course right now, we are on hand to guide you through the perfect raceday picnic.

Feeling peckish?


The sun has been shining, and what better way to spend your afternoon than in front of quality racing action and tucking into a few of our favourites!


No picnic is complete without…cake! Have you tried our Chef’s recipe for the perfect lemon drizzle? Give it a go and enjoy with a cup of tea throughout the afternoon…


How about making this picnic extra fancy? Try out this simple yet delicious dish, sure to make any picnic guests impressed. The focaccia and rosemary camembert is always a crowd-pleaser on a raceday.


After something a little more simple?


You can’t go wrong with bitesize sausage rolls! Something small to grab in between the excitement of the action on the track. Why not try out our brilliant flapjacks for a sweet treat!


And finally…is a British picnic complete without a scone? Question is…jam or cream first?

Something to drink?


A Pimms in the sunshine, or a cider to keep you cool on a summer’s afternoon.


Why not try and create the perfect raceday mocktail for the younger racing fans? Perhaps create one to the colour of your favourite silks!


Get yourself the perfect tipple to cheers to the best sport being back.
