A day at the races is never complete without some tasty food and a few drinks. Whether you’re looking for a sumptuous sit-down dinner or a piping hot box of fish and chips, you’ll find a delicious meal that will satisfy your hunger and keep you going until the last post has been passed!

At Perth Racecourse we are delighted to be partnered by Prestige Venues and Events, an award-winning food and drink provider who specialise in creating stunning menus using the best of local produce. Our hospitality is second to none and we can assure that your meal will be every bit as memorable as the racing!

The attention to detail doesn’t stop at this top end food; throughout the racecourse we offer hot takeaway food choices such as burgers, fish and chips, hog roasts and more. There is also a chance for you to sit down and enjoy lunch in the Club Restaurant (remember to book!).

Bars are plentiful and with views across the track and big screens dotted throughout, you won’t miss a minute of the action while you enjoy a tipple and catch up on the form! Grab a pint of Real Ale from the Strathbraan & Inveralmond Brewery in the barn or enjoy a glass of fizz in our Gin & Fizz Bar.

And of course, if you want to enjoy our stunning parklands then a picnic in the centre course is the only way to go! Book your tickets, pack your picnic (or let us do it for you!) and prepare for a fabulous day out!
