There is also a selection of ham, tuna, egg & cheese sandwiches.
Is food available all day?
Yes, menu as above.
Is there anything else you’d like to let Racing Staff know about the food and refreshments?
There is a facility for free tea and coffee available to racing staff within the stables. Except when meal vouchers are used, tea/coffee and drinks are not free in the Hunters Lodge canteen, this is due to the fact that non-stable staff use it. NB: At busy serving times, stable staff do have priority.

Stable staff are accommodated in Hunters Lodge which is located next to the stables.
How many rooms does the racecourse provide?
31 rooms, which sleep up to 4 people. When possible stable staff are accommodated as they wish.

Do you have facilities for staff to change and wash in if not staying?
Yes, we do provide changing rooms for stable staff just coming for the day.
For courses staging multi-day fixtures, what time can staff check in?
Anytime to suit them.

BTOs are offered for all races with the prize either being £150 cash or equivalent value in a voucher to spend at a sponsoring outlet, at the moment it’s HiHo Silver.
