Local suppliers firm favourites at Race Week breakfasts

Battledown Beer BottlesWith Cheltenham Festival nearly upon us we’re looking at some of the suppliers that help make our, now infamous, Race Week Breakfasts at Pittville Pump Room a winner.

We’ve been serving breakfasts to Festival punters in this iconic Cheltenham venue since 2009 and have perfected the recipe of great local food, an exciting pre-race atmosphere and a full bar serving Bloody Mary’s, Irish Coffee’s and plenty of the ubiquitous black stuff.

Pump Room DuskOur Full English, served from 9am, includes Gloucester Old Spot sausages from Martins Meats of Toddington, free range eggs from Mays of Ledbury and milk & cream from Cotteswold Dairy in Tewkesbury. We also offer a Continental Breakfast and Hot Breakfast Baps served on Hobbs House breads.



On Ladies Day, Wednesday 16th March, we’ll be serving ‘The Pendleton Breakfast’; smoked salmon and free range scrambled eggs on a bagel with a glass of Prosecco for just £10.00, named in honour of Victoria Pendleton who is hoped to have her, much anticipated, first race in the St James’s Place Foxhunter Chase at Cheltenham on Friday.

We also have two beautiful rooms available where we can serve an exclusive buffet breakfast to parties of up to 50 VIP guests.

The Oval Room PPREach day we’ll be offering ‘take away’ picnic lunches including a sandwich, pork pie, homemade cake and a drink to ensure race goers are sustained throughout their busy day.

This year, for the first time, we’re thrilled to welcome the 14 metre long Guinness Bar to the Pittville Pump Room which will be open every day pre-race from 10am and post-race from 3pm (weather dependent).

Guinness Mobile BarAnd, if it stays dry, we’ll light the barbeque and serve burgers and hot dogs. Pick up a flyer from Cheltenham Town Hall or Pittville Pump Room to get 20% off your first drink.
