For equestrians and foodies alike, there is no event in the social calendar quite as revered as Royal Ascot. After all, it’s reserved for the best; the best in racing and the best in dining – with some of the finest chefs in the United Kingdom descending on the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead in Berkshire for a weekend of horseracing and high-end hospitality. From 18 – 22 June, thrill seekers and racegoers will come together to escape the ordinary and indulge in a week of celebration, festivities and feasting. Whether it be the sport or the food that captures your imagination, there really is nothing quite like enjoying a British summer’s day at Royal Ascot.

For over 250 years, Royal Ascot has held its place as the crown jewel of the British racing season. Casual racing enthusiasts and racing devotees will surely agree that, if there is racing to be seen, it is to be seen at Royal Ascot. When you're not cheering for your favourite at the finish line, enjoy live performances while indulging in the best of British cuisine. Give in to temptation and pre-book a table at one of the Michelin-starred restaurants to add a dose of luxury to your day, or perhaps you’d prefer a mouth-watering bite from a street-food stall; whatever your fancy, Royal Ascot hospitality is both a feast for the eye and the palate.

Royal Ascot proudly retains its place as the pinnacle of Fine Dining with expertly prepared and beautifully presented three-course meals available across the Queen Anne, Village and Royal enclosures. 

Let’s talk about those chefs. Royal Ascot packs in some of the top talent in the land, with none other than Raymond Blanc OBE taking the helm at the Panoramic Restaurant in the Royal Enclosure. For the ninth year running, he’ll be offering a five-course menu drawing inspiration from Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons where he has held two-Michelin-stars for four decades straight. He’ll be joined by one Mr Simon Rogan, one of Britain’s most innovative chefs who boasts a cool seven Michelin stars and two Michelin green stars. Rogan will be utilising the very best in fresh, local, and seasonal produce with his five-course à la carte luncheon in the Parade Ring Restaurant.

Lisa Goodwin-Allen, the Michelin-starred chef and TV-regular, makes her Royal Ascot debut as part of this year’s ‘Chefs in Residence’, headlining the Queen Anne Enclosure’s flagship fine dining restaurant, ON 5. Following on from his success on BBC’s ‘Great British Menu’, where he won the main course and cooked his highly praised ‘cow pie’ at the Banquet, Michelin-starred chef Tom Shepherd will host the Royal Enclosure restaurant, The Sandringham. They’ll be joined by a veritable constellation of talent including Tom Booton from the nominal Grill at The Dorchester; Tom Barnes, former executive chef at L’Enclume and Rogan & Co; James Tanner of The Kentish Hare; and master pâtissier Eric Landlard of Cake Boy in Battersea. In total, that’s eleven Michelin stars and three Michelin green stars between them.

Embrace indulgence at Royal Ascot. This is where the nation comes for fun and feasting.
