About The Old Weighing Room

Whether you’re going for a day at the races or just horsing around the area, stop by The Old Weighing Room for a traditionally British dinner or Sunday lunch overlooking the racecourse. Cool and calm décor draw you in with modern soft greys to balance the old-styled interiors. The exposed roof beams, grand entrance columns, barn-style doors and other accents tell of the 1920s era of architecture design which has been beautifully preserved at this restaurant.

The Old Weighing Room is open for dinner until late from Thursday to Saturday and lunch is served on Sundays.  Expect distinctively British dishes that are carefully constructed with local Yorkshire ingredients and feature contemporary twists.

The wine list comprises of a wide selection of varieties from around the globe and plenty of fizzy options for when you’re feeling like splashing out. They have traditional Champagne on offer and include something different with the vintage and rosé champagnes. The food menu changes seasonally, but each dish has been thoughtfully chosen to honour the fresh seasonal produce and celebrate British cuisine in a modern way. The restaurant always strives to serve high-quality cuts of meat and well-prepared fish.

On your visit, you might come across the prawn with cucumber and sorrel starter on grilled rye bread. This is plated with pickled cucumber, mustard yoghurt and a unique avocado gel. For mains, try the trio of lamb which consists of a cut of rump, shoulder and cutlets. This is dished up with glazed onions, charred broccoli, and a port and mint jus. You’ll possibly come across the Champagne panacotta for dessert, a great choice with an impressive strawberry shard, pickled strawberries and finished with strawberry sorbet.

The Old Weighing Room occasionally has live music and special event menus, offering guests a varied dining experience. If it’s a clear and sunny day, opt for a seat outside on the terrace and keep an eye on your winning horse.
