Bakery and catering company French Village has won the contract to cater at Down Royal Racecourse.

French Village, which is based in Belfast, will supply everything from small plates and snacks in the Dark Horse Wine Bar to three course meals in hospitality boxes.

The company, owned by the French family, have taken over the contract from catering firm Hamilton & Kirk. The business was run by Duke of York publican Willie Jack and his business partner Bruce Kirk, who died last year. Mike Todd, general manager at Down Royal Racecourse, said: "The culinary offering is a key component to the overall enjoyment of the day and we are delighted to have French Village on board to take that to the next level."
