Newmarket/ Southwold: Adnams pub opens at Rowley Mile racecourse

TWO Suffolk institutions from opposite ends of the county have joined forces, with the Rowley Mile race at Newmarket having launched its own dedicated cask ale Adnams pub.

Southwold-based Adnams and Newmarket Racecourses, together with Jockey Club Catering, have launched the Adnams Cask Bar in a collaborative venture which will see the ground floor of the Rowley Mile grandstand transformed into a working pub, open on both racing and non-race days.

Visitors, racegoers and residents will be able to enjoy a full range of Adnams cask ales, spirits from the company’s Copper House Distillery and a collection of Adnams wines and bottled beers.

With a capacity of around 120, the bar, which opened this week during the Craven meeting, is situated next to the Royal Box in the Premier Enclosure and will also be serving a range of bar snacks.

Adrian Simpson, sales and marketing director at Newmarket Racecourses, said: “The Rowley Mile has for many years been a place of racing, socialising and enjoyment and we have no doubt that the Adnams Cask Bar will be an extension of that.

“We’re ingrained in our Suffolk heritage, as is Adnams, so we see this partnership as a very natural and exciting evolution in the Rowley Mile’s history.

“The Adnams Cask Bar will also play an important role in the ongoing positioning of Newmarket Racecourses as a ‘must visit’ destination on a sporting, social, and gastronomic level.”
