Musselburgh Racecourse is a 5-star visitor attraction just six miles from Edinburgh with excellent transport links and free parking – ideal for all your special occasions. Why not consider holding your event here for something a bit different that combines superb hospitality with a unique setting?
Because a corporate day at award-winning Musselburgh Racecourse isn’t just about racing. It's about delicious food, canapés and champagne corks popping. You don’t have to be a racing fan when you arrive – but you’ll certainly be one when you finally tear yourself away.
The recently refurbished Queens Stand, with its suites and balconies and panoramic views of the course, is available for race days and non-race days alike. With or without the excitement of a photo finish and a flutter, Musselburgh Racecourse is a fabulous choice for corporate days out, private parties and weddings.
We are local, Scottish, consummate event caterers. Our staff are passionately driven, food obsessed and we hope charming, creators and purveyors of the very best hospitality you’re ever likely to experience at a special event or wedding. We are partners of choice for some of Scotland’s most iconic and grand venues and Musselburgh Racecourse are testament to that. We have become “famous for food” and pioneers of precision hospitality.
“Building a business we are proud of” is the mantra followed by our team. In January 2013 we were granted our Royal Warrant of Appointment to Her Majesty the Queen as Supplier of Catering Services – something we are immensely proud of and that represents a huge amount of hard work, skill and professionalism from our team.
Food & Drink Design
Innovative and artistic, our award-winning chefs and team of designers are self-confessed food fanatics, original and heavyweight ‘foodies’ who combine passion, imagination and culinary creativity in equal measure. Our chefs take the time to get to know the producers personally who take equal pride in knowing that their food and drinks are beautifully presented on your plates. Our menus may dazzle, but every yin needs a yang. Our drinks selection is perfectly picked by our wine ambassador who has gone the extra mile to ensure every option is absolutely appropriate. Circumnavigating the globe in our pursuit of the perfect accompaniment, the integrity of our drinks list is founded in a stone-turning search for the world’s best producers. Our team’s experience in your event at Musselburgh Racecourse will ensure your guests delight.
