Huge range of local food and drink on offer at the Paddock at TT 2018
Race fans heading to the TT Grandstand and Paddock Site during this year’s Isle of Man TT Races can look forward to an expanded range of food and drink outlets. As well as bumping into your favourite rider, seeing the machines on display or just soaking up the unique atmosphere, this year fans can treat their taste buds like never before with a mix of local artisan street food vendors, TT paddock favourites and fayre representing all four corners of the globe.
The lineup of hot food options includes local meat producers Ballakelly Farm, artisan pie and mash from Betty’s Pie’s, pork and beef baps by the Manx Carvery, a range of homemade street food from local café The Eatery and traditional TT fast food favorites from JK’s Foods and Manx Refreshments.
For something a little healthier, race fans can also visit The Alpine Café’s pop up venue for hearty salads and meaty sandwiches or Peppermill Catering who will be offering baked potatoes, chilli, salads and fresh baguettes.
For a more international flavour fans can enjoy American-style hot dogs by Dave’s Delicious Dogs, Tacos, Nachos and Fajitas from La Costena, African food made with local ingredients by Taste of Africa, a taste of the orient from Thai Thai and not to mention the best in Italian stonebaked Pizzas from Savino’s and Bella Pizza.
With a June heatwave being predicted by weather forecasters, fans can cool themselves down with a range of ice cream outlets including Davison’s Ice Cream, Manx Ices and Manx Whippy with more sweet treats available from The Donut Factory. And if the weather is a bit cooler on occasion or you’re in need of an early morning pick me up, the TT Grandstand and Paddock Site will play host to a range of barista coffee outlets including Coffee Mann by local TT hero Conor Cummins, Barista Express, Bumperpull Coffee and local artisan bakery and coffee roastery Noa Bakehouse, who will be offering their fabulous pastries alongside barista coffees with specialist coffee beans roasted onsite in their local bakery/cafe.
If that’s not enough, 2018 will see a completely revamped licensed bar offer from local brewer Heron & Brearley, with ‘The Trackside’ bar covering a 1500m² site adjacent to the TT Course complete with bespoke bar structure, stretch tent and live entertainment stage.
