Bath Racecourse launches enticing new menus
Planning a day at the races? Step away from the hot dogs! Bath Racecourse Executive Head Chef Jonathan Williams is encouraging guests choosing to dine at the track’s Royal Crescent Restaurant to “experience something different.”
At a recent menu launch, Jonathan revealed a range of exciting, unique dishes including Parsnip Crème Brûlée, Persian-spiced rump of lamb and Pecan Nut Pie with caramel syrup, whipped bacon and maple ‘pancake’ batter; this chef is, it seems, quite the master of the art of putting fascinating twists on classic flavours. “I’m really keen for people to come to the Royal Crescent Restaurant and try something new, something different, something they haven’t had before,” Jonathan said, at the launch. “Creating a menu at a racecourse is very different compared to a standard restaurant; we need to be able to served up to 200 covers at each fixture and all within a two-hour window before the racing starts. I’m proud that the Royal Crescent restaurant is à la carte – we don’t do pre-orders, and all the food is all freshly prepared and cooked to order… no mean feat given the time frame we have to work within!”
But it’s not only restaurant guests who get to sample Jonathan’s food. Hospitality clients can select gourmet summer buffets for informal entertaining or a more formal sit-down meal, while racegoers in the exclusive Roof Garden have the option to choose from a menu of Arabic khobez flatbreads loaded with harissa spiced lamb, ras el hanout braised brisket, lemon chicken and chickpea falafel.
If you’re keen to sample Jonathan’s menus, choose from 22 horse racing fixtures scheduled for 2020 at the Lansdown venue. Tickets to dine in the Royal Crescent Restaurant start from £75.00 per person to include all of the racing action, a reserved table for the entire fixture, a three-course meal and programme.
