Our award-winning, contemporary restaurant On 5 is located on the fifth floor of the Grandstand and will once again be headlined by one of the UK’s most acclaimed and decorated chefs, Phil Howard, during Royal Ascot 2017.
For 17 years, Phil held two Michelin stars at his co-owned restaurant, The Square. His achieved accolades also include winning the prestigious Great British Menu in 2012; with a desire to pursue cleaner and lighter dishes resulting in Elystan Street; his new Chelsea outpost, which has reaped critical acclaim.
Praised for his previous stints at Ascot, he returns to On 5 with a spectacular menu which remains faithful to his own cooking philosophy, championing the best of British produce.
Speaking about his decision to host On5 at Royal Ascot this year, Phil said: “I’m thrilled to be a part of Royal Ascot in 2017.
“Following on from the success of 2015 and 2016, there is a lot of pressure to impress once more, but I feel prepared and enjoy rising to the challenge.
“When planning the menu, seasonal British produce was at the forefront of my mind to create dishes that are both delicious and visually stunning – in keeping with such a prestigious occasion.
“It’s a privilege to have my dishes served at the Royal Meeting once again.”
Alongside a spectacular four-course menu, guests in On 5 can also look forward to a Champagne Bollinger reception on arrival, plus a complimentary bar throughout the day, including Champagne and cocktails. A deluxe Royal Ascot Afternoon Tea is also included as part of the package.
Guests are transported in a private lift and welcomed into elegant but timeless surroundings, with the finely-crafted interior of the restaurant inspired by the art and craft of horse racing.
Featuring a sweeping, jaw-dropping glass front, On 5’s facilities include a spacious bar area, which provides a perfect gathering area between races, and a private balcony and roof terrace offering stunning views across the racecourse for the Royal Procession and the racing.
Prices for On 5 at Royal Ascot start from £839 +VAT per person.
