Goodwood gallops into a new summer season with an exceptionally exciting array of delicious dishes, vibrant pop-ups, and brilliant beverages, all championing fantastic local businesses.

Central to the shift at Goodwood Racecourse is the iconic Double Trigger Restaurant, which this season will headline a plethora of pop-ups, featuring nationally acclaimed and award -winning local restaurants.

First-up, The Briny, which will open during Season Opener and on 3 September for Midweek Racing. Heralding from The Coastal Kitchen dynasty, The Briny specialise in fresh seafood, with the menu set to feature the likes of Chalk Stream Gravlax and Sea Kelp Gnocchi, while their sister company, The Canteen, will be showcasing a superb grab and go element on Family Race Day with their delicious take on family picnic favourites.

The popular Crabshack based in Worthing adds further to savour for the season this time at May Festival and on 25 September. Inspired fish stews alongside, a delicate crab arancini, and handmade crab cakes, bring sheer quality, while sustainable fishing is centre and focus of their exceptional ethos.

Adding a hint of Mexican spice to a trio of fantastic food options in the Double Trigger is Crudo, available for the Three Friday Nights fixtures in June. Tip-top Tacos, heaped Totopos and a selection of salsas are at the heart of their street style servings.

Across the season, Goodwood is the home of the perfect pour, feel immersed in your own world sipping Veuve Clicquot at the Champagne Bar. For lovers of the coffee culture, aromatic aromas of Cast Iron’s roastery will brew up a treat for racegoers across every fixture, they will introduce the exclusive Goodwood blend which will be served in the Richmond and Gordon Enclosure cafe.

Guy Spurr, Head Roaster at Cast Iron commented; "At Cast Iron Coffee Roasters we are incredibly excited to be invited to collaborate with Goodwood Racecourse to supply a bespoke Goodwood Coffee Blend for the March Stand this season. One of the coffee blends components is our new direct trade Colombian coffee and to have seen this coffee on the trees in Cuidad Bolívar in October to be now roasting and serving it is hugely rewarding”.

The flagship Qatar Goodwood Festival, will see the return of the easy-eating, great value, curated street food collection presented by KERB on the Earl’s Lawn, while the iconic Goodwood delicacy of complimentary Strawberries and Cream will top the tastes on offer.

Fresh local ingredients and seasonal produce have formed the ethos of everything offered on the picturesque South Downs Racecourse. Celebrity chef, Tony Tobin made famous as a regular on BBC food series Ready, Steady, Cook joins the team as Head Chef. A breadth of skills and a passion for delivering fantastic food mean Goodwood's culinary offering will be the most exceptional yet.

James Crespi, Racecourse Director commented; “We’re thrilled to announce an array of collaborations with local businesses via pop ups both in the Double Trigger and across all enclosures.

“It’s brilliant for Goodwood Racecourse to showcase a broad variety of flavours from Sussex’s best food and drink outlets, we have something for everyone on offer. Our premium hospitality packages and restaurants continue to showcase a wonderful fine dining experience for racegoers, however, we have felt that it is important to build on accessible food and drink.

“In addition, we have created a new Sussex Party Package. Sussex boxes will be transformed into a casual offering with sharing plates, providing the racegoer with a taste of hospitality at a fraction of the price.”

Admission and packages across 19 fixtures of the most anticipated summer season to date at Goodwood Racecourse are on sale, with best-priced tickets for the Qatar Goodwood Festival available at 15% off before 31 May. Visit Goodwood.com or call 01243 755055 to find out more.
