Epsom Downs Racecourse has announced its new hospitality offer in partnership with the two Michelin starred chefs, Albert Roux and Michel Roux Jr, ahead of the Investec Derby Festival on Friday 6 and Saturday 7 June.

Chez Roux on the Prince’s Lawn will be a bistro inspired offer where the father and son duo will create an exclusive menu complete with a series of signature dishes. With one of the most sought-after views over the Investec Derby Festival, the restaurant will be available for lunch during the two-day event.  

Dishes on the bespoke menu include English asparagus salad with a hen egg, feta cheese, aubergine caviar and truffle dressing to start. Followed by an l’assiette du boucher - a roast fillet of beef with mash potato and onion gravy, or lamb chop with ratatouille.  

The new Chez Roux on the Prince’s Lawn hospitality packages follows the chefs’ contract extension with Jockey Club Racecourses which originated with their Fairlawne fine-dining experience at The Cheltenham Festival.  

Speaking about Chez Roux on the Prince’s Lawn, Albert Roux commented: “We are delighted to be involved with the Investec Derby as it is a major part of the British social calendar. I feel immensely proud to be showcasing our bespoke menus at this prestigious event.”  

Rupert Trevelyan, regional director of London Racecourses, said: “We are very excited to be working alongside two outstanding Michelin starred chefs, to provide an additional dimension to the creative thinking behind the Investec Derby menu development."  

The Investec Derby Festival is a highlight of Britain’s sporting and social calendar, attracting more than 125,000 people during the two-day festival. In its 235th year, the Investec Derby is the UK’s most valuable race worth £1.325m in prize money.  

Prices for Chez Roux on the Prince’s Lawn start at £549 + VAT per person.
