Sodexo & Ascot Racecourse to deliver food at Covid-safe event

18th Jun 2021 - 05:00
Royal Ascot racegoers will dine on ‘exquisite menus’ from Michelin-starred chefs as the five-day festival of racing welcomes up to 12,000 people a day as part of the Government’s Events Research Programme.

1711 by Ascot, a joint venture between Ascot Racecourse and Sodexo’s Sports & Leisure business, delivers fine dining and hospitality as well as working with renowned chefs on restaurants at the course.

Chris Bray, chief executive for Sodexo Sport and Leisure, said: “While this year’s Royal Ascot will be different, we will deliver our usual fantastic culinary experiences.

“A lot of work has gone into creating an experience that is safe, but still enjoyable and memorable. And, as it is one of the first great British summer events this year, it is really important to the industry and one the organisers hope will show confidence in the hospitality industry as it reopens.”

Food and drink will be available for order through the Ascot Food and Drink App, which guests can download to their phone via the apple store or Google Play.

Jonathan Parker, managing director of 1711 by Ascot, added: “We pride ourselves on providing memorable experiences and those who will enjoy their day in Raymond, Simon, Ollie and Rick’s restaurants can expect sensational food, impeccable service and a sporting occasion like no other.”
