Newbury Racecourse named Racecourse Caterer of the year

Newbury Racecourse won three awards including the Judges Catering Excellence Award, given to the best overall racecourse caterer, at the National Racecourse Catering Awards last week.

The awards were held at Doncaster Racecourse on Friday 21 October, where Newbury was shortlisted in all of the nine categories for which it entered.

As well as the overall award for best racecourse caterer, Newbury won the Best Mobile Fast Food Experience Award for their use of Charcoal Grill & Rotisserie providers Carbonis and Best New Catering Concept for the Honesty Catering’s Afternoon Tea Picnics used on Betfred Ladies Day in August.

Martin Wales, Head of Catering at Newbury Racecourse, commented: “We are delighted. To win three awards, including the overall one, and be shortlisted in in the other six categories for which we entered is a fantastic achievement.

“We are passionate about providing the best quality and variety of food, together with excellent service, to our customers and awards like this are a reflection of the hard work put in by our staff.”
