Places To Eat

Musselburgh Racecourse offers a great selection of places to eat and drink. Take a break from the racing action and visit one of our restaurants, bars or cafe located around the racecourse whilst keeping an eye on the racing TV screens.


The Harris Tweed Bistro & Bar

Experience our NEW Harris Tweed Bistro & Bar which is located on the upper floor of our historic Grandstand. Its location has panoramic views across the finish line.

Our bistro menu focuses on fresh, locally sourced ingredients and showcases our bistro favourites including our infamous Fish and Chips sourced from Eyemouth harbour, mouth-watering Balmoral chicken, a classic Carvery, and traditional Scottish steak pie. Choose from one, two or three courses as well as lighter snacks and delicious home baking. Once you have finished your meal, you can retire to our Harris Tweed Bar located on our first floor, overlooking the Pommery Lawn. It is the perfect place to unwind, after your meal.
