Presiding over the home straight, Chevals Restaurant celebrates food, wine and racing within luxury surrounds and is the flagship venue of Newcastle Racecourse. With uninterrupted views of the winning post and home straight of Newcastle Racecourse, and featuring tote facilities, Chevals Restaurant is the venue of choice for an exceptional race day experience.
An exciting theatre of sport, culture, fashion and cuisine, race day is the perfect backdrop for fine-dining fun at Chevals Restaurant and recent changes to the menu mean that you can now enjoy a tantalising, chef-inspired, three-course buffet with prime trackside views at every weekend race day.
The new menu recognises that diners have a need to dine throughout the day, so the decision to create an exceptional buffet experience was taken by Executive Chef and General Manager of Hospitality – Glynn Haslam late in 2017.
Start the day with your choice of entrée from the extensive Charcuterie and Antipasto or perhaps some fresh tiger prawns before launching into the “Main Affair.” There’s something for every tastebud here with a selection that includes tender eye fillet with baby spinach and a wild mushroom jus, steamed snapper fillets with salsa verde and confit tomatoes, chicken breast with oregano, lemon and olives, hoisin pork and prawn stir fry noodles, green lip mussels poached in a garlic and Verdelho cream, spiced lamb rump with a minted yoghurt and an extensive range of hot and cold side dishes.
If you have any room left, the Chefs delicacies and desserts and Australian cheeses will tempt you to flick your New Years resolutions – and start again on Monday!
A reservation at Chevals Restaurant includes racecourse entry with admission to the Members enclosure, a three-course chefs selection inclusive buffet lunch, reserved table for the day with views over the Parade Ring and Finish Line, and a complimentary racebook (per couple).
Most tables in Chevals feature a plasma TV so you can enjoy all the race day action from Newcastle and all around the country (tables with plasma TVs need to be requested at the time of booking and are subject to availability).
