Campbell & Rowley are the exclusive caterers for Cartmel Racecourse and provide all the catering and hospitality for race days and non race day events.
It is a wonderful location for weddings, christening and naming ceremonies, birthdays and special occasions.
It’s almost certain that racing has taken place at Cartmel since at least the middle of the fifteenth century when monks of the nearby priory entertained themselves by organising racing on mules, no bookmakers naturally but little doubt some form of illegal gambling took place. Early meetings were on the flat but by the start of the twentieth century the course had switched codes and had become a jump only venue.
The earliest written testimony of racing taking place at Cartmel dates back to 1856
Today a Cartmel Race meeting is a mixture of highly professionally staged racing, attracting top jockey’s and trainers, with a sense of the old world charm. There is so much to see and do on race days that the popularity of race days just grows and grows which is reflected in the visitor numbers which just keeps on rising.
“Rowley’s are not just the caterers at Cartmel Racecourse – they are our partners. Together we try to ensure that every experience at the racecourse is a great one – whether the event happens to be a wedding, a corporate get-together or a race-day. The team combines a friendly approach to business with a serious commitment to customer care and a passion for good food.” – Jonathan Garrett, Cartmel Racecourse Director
