Places to Eat and Drink

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 Bistro

The Bistro offers a relaxed dining experience providing hearty, traditional home-cooked style meals with ingredients sourced primarily from local suppliers. Savour the perfect roast beef and local fish prepared to the highest standard. Choose from one, two or three courses as well as lighter snacks and delicious home baking.

This 'walk-in' restaurant on the ground floor of the Grandstand has a private bar, Totepool betting facility and is available to all racegoers. We recommend booking tables in advance although there is always availability on the day (excluding Ladies Day).

Pinkies is a popular, traditional bar located on the ground floor of the Grandstand serving hot gourmet pies by Pie Not.

Cafe 1816 has been recently refurbished and offers stylish surroundings to enjoy a refreshing tea or speciality coffee, sandwiches, baking & patisserie and hot soup.
