Ascot Racecourse has appointed two of the nation’s most respected chefs to help deliver its fine dining offer for 2016. Raymond Blanc and Phil Howard will host the Panoramic Restaurant and On5 respectively, for all five days of this year’s Royal Meeting. Raymond and Phil hold two Michelin stars each and will create a high quality and memorable fine dining experience for racegoers.

Phil Howard, co-owner of The Square and winner of Great British Menu in 2012 will bring his love of home grown ingredients to create a spectacular summer menu in On5. Phil returns to Royal Ascot after a very successful five day stint in 2015, where his dishes proved wildly popular with racegoers.

Speaking about his decision to host On5 at Royal Ascot this year, Phil Howard said:

“I’m really looking forward to being a part of Royal Ascot 2016, especially following the success of last year. Again, this year I will be using my interest in British ingredients to create a stunning menu to match the spectacle of a day at Royal Ascot. We have been growing our own vegetables within the grounds of Fulham Palace for a year now and using them at The Square is something I am very proud of. I am greatly looking forward to bringing them to the Royal Meeting this year.”
