BDP has completed a new trackside restaurant at Ascot Racecourse in Berkshire in time for this year’s royal event which runs 17 – 21 June.
Michelin starred chef Tom Kerridge will host the On5 restaurant in the Central Grandstand which creates a public hospitality facility to suit the modern and future racegoers offering the very best in fine dining.
The scheme converts 14 hospitality boxes into a 220 seat, liner-like restaurant running 60 metres along the trackside. The space located at the east gable of the upper level of the vast grandstand provides an exceptional prospect for racing with views panning the whole course and particularly the straight mile course from starting stalls to winning post. A redundant area of flat roof is reshaped into an outdoor terrace exploiting the views and sunny location.
BDP has been working with Ascot Racecourse since 2010 developing concept ideas to help improve the experience for race goers and the long term sustainability of its business through the operation of its estates.
