A restaurant at Doncaster Racecourse has been given a revamp in keeping with its racing tradition.
The Old Weighing Room restaurant and bar, formerly known as Silks, has undergone a £125,000 refurbishment in readiness for re-opening on April 17.
Doncaster Racecourse employed the services of local architects and building companies to undertake the work which has been completed over the last few months, attempting to preserve its architectural design features from the 1920s.
Managing director Mark Spincer said: “We are very excited about The Old Weighing Room, we have retained the charm and character of the building. The restaurant provides a perfect stand-alone dining experience for guests whether they are enjoying the races or just wish to dine out.“
A chef who previously worked for the Jamie Oliver Foundation as a training chef for No 15 restaurant in Cornwall will be in charge of the kitchen.
The Old Weighing Room will be open for dinner Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 4pm with food service starting from 6pm and Sunday lunch is served from 12pm to 6pm.
