SquareMeal review of
The Epsom Derby
Each year crowds of up to 125,000 see the Investec Derby Festival live, flocking to Epsom Downs to celebrate this quintessentially English event. Keith Prowse offers a variety of hospitality experiences. The Tattenham Straight Marquee is to the left of the main Grandstand, a pivotal point as horses approach the final furlong. Its private enclosure with betting facilities keeps everyone close to action. The Winning Post is a new marquee on the inside track, next to the finishing line. It provides mixologists, music and a slick dining experience, alongside elements of both self and silver service. With panoramic views of the racecourse and onto the Parade Ring and Winner’s Circle, the Downs View Suite is another great spot to entertain. The Chez Roux @ Blue Riband restaurant has an à la carte menu designed by Albert Roux and son Michel Jr, while the centrally located Derby Suite is one of the most exclusive and intimate hospitality areas.
The Investec Derby runs from 5-6 June 2015.
