Located in the Grandstand, on the concourse and in the Cooking Theatre, ensure you visit all areas to discover unique takes on modern cuisine. 

Gastronomic Adventure

Cooking Theatre

The popular Furlong Club will transform into a Cooking Theatre to host chefs revealing their finest tips as well as bars, food and drink stalls and an outdoor balcony to view the racing. 

The Social Kitchen

The Social Kitchen is about everyone meeting around a table, enjoying chatting and connecting over food. Fisher & Paykel try and make this possible by having the most intuitive ovens, hobs, fridges and dishwashers on the market, so rather than spending time in your kitchen slaving over your appliances, you can be with your guests enjoying the stories that are always told when people get together.

BBQ Masterclass

With three masterclasses each day, racegoers will get expert tuition on how to make the most from your BBQ. Cooking using the latest Broil King BBQ technology, the classes are designed to take the most inexperienced beginners or the expert griller and offers great tips and advice on how to create the perfect gourmet feast.


There are several experiences to choose from. Each offers a truly unique experience at our historic racecourse.
