Dining near the racecourse

The racecourse is only a 10 minute walk from the centre of town so most restaurants are walkable but if you’re looking for a top restaurant nearby I would recommend The Old Siam on Micklegate. For something a bit more up-market but equally as reasonable try Hotel du Vin. Their Sunday brunch is an excellent way to end your racing weekend.
