About

We’ve had years honing our craft in racegoer satisfaction and an afternoon (or evening) on the Roodee offers an experience like no other.

Sample the thrill of watching competitive racing, whist enjoying premium food and beverages across a variety of areas and enclosures. Whether you’re looking to celebrate a special occasion or fill your weekend with some serious fun, we’ve something to suit. Mingle with the

stylish crowd and enjoy a day to remember with family and friends. Tickets and badges for all 2017 fixtures, including the Boodles May Festival, are now available to buy and there are a variety of offers available on selected fixtures to reward early purchase.

Each of our fixtures is uniquely different and new for 2017 is Chester Stakes Day on Saturday 2 September, celebrating the historic Chester Stakes. Secure your places at this or any Chester raceday and guarantee an unforgettable racing experience in 2017.

      We always choose this menu when taking the family out for lunch. The venue is superb and everyone enjoys being able to look across the racecourse. The food is always excellent and service good too. Read full review
