Ahead of the Northern Ireland Festival of Racing this weekend, Friday 4th and Saturday 5th November, Down Royal’s new catering partner, French Village, has announced the menu for the popular Dark Horse Wine Bar.

Down Royal recently appointed Belfast-based French Village as its new catering partner in a move which will significantly enhance and expand the culinary offering to racegoers. French Village delights can be enjoyed by all at the Races – from small plates and snacks in the Dark Horse Wine Bar to three course meals in the hospitality suites and boxes.  

 

Mike Todd, General Manager at Down Royal, said:  

 

"We’re delighted to have French Village at Down Royal as we feel they will really take the culinary offering at the Racecourse to the next level and further add to the enjoyment of our racegoers.  

 

"Whilst the two and three course meals are exclusive to the hospitality suites and boxes, this great menu available in the Dark Horse Wine Bar means absolutely everyone at the Festival can enjoy the tasting French Village offering.  

 

"With the Festival just days away, the countdown is well and truly on for thousands of racegoers to enter through the turnstiles on both Friday and Saturday and enjoy what will be two fantastic days of racing and fun!”
