So it makes (horse) sense that Beverley Racecourse should be harnessed in a new partnership with one of the country’s top chefs, our very own James.
National tourism agency VisitEngland awarded the accolade after the Racecourse Association’s Quality Assured Racecourse Scheme assessed Beverley’s race day experience and judged it to be in the UK’s top 11 racecourses for 2018, alongside such hallowed venues such as Aintree, Ascot, Cheltenham, Chester, York and Ripon.
And now the experience is even better - race-goers are able to dine from a menu specially designed by James, and implemented by CGC Event Caterers.
“We've put dishes on the à la carte menu: two starters, two mains and two puddings, which alternate,” explains James. “And in September, we had a Pipe and Glass takeover day at the final meeting of the season.”
Sally Iggulden, Chief Executive of Beverley Racecourse, said: “We’re really excited to be working with James and enabling our guests in The Attraction restaurant to enjoy the fantastic food for which The Pipe and Glass is so renowned.
“So many of our regular racegoers love to make a great meal in The Attraction restaurant the centrepiece of their day out at the races and The Pipe and Glass is a much-loved venue for many of our discerning diners. It’s bringing two of their favourite experiences together in one place.”
