The Parade Ring Restaurant scoops National Racecourse Catering Award

2016 National Racecourse Catering Awards

Winner: “Best Fine Dining Restaurant: The Parade Ring Restaurant”


York Racecourse Hospitality celebrated great success at the annual National Racecourse Catering Awards, this year supported by Sports and Leisure Catering Magazine. Held at Doncaster Racecourse, the awards brought together courses and their caterers to celebrate culinary excellence from the past 12 months.


Now in their 7th year the annual awards recognise and reward across a total of 13 categories, from fine dining to fast food and everything in between.


The fiercely competitive category of ‘Best Fine Dining Experience’ was proudly won by The Parade Ring Restaurant. The Parade Ring Restaurant’s enviable location combined with the skills of our chefs and front of house team has seen the facility fast become a firm favourite since its opening in May 2015.  


In addition to this, York Racecourse was ranked in the top three for the “People’s Choice Award”, voted for by racegoers themselves who are asked to nominate their favourite catering experience at a racecourse.


We are absolutely delighted with our success. It is testament to the hard work that all our staff put in day in day out. It gives everyone a real boost to know that their efforts have been recognised and rewarded and it is an event we look forward to attending every year.
