Are we now stuck with the Racecourse catering for the rest of the season, or worse, longer?

Has anyone actually seen what they are selling as pies? A polystyrene tray full of casserole mix, with a random bit of pastry thrown on top.

IF YOUR PIE CAN BE POURED INTO A TRAY IT'S NOT A f**kING PIE


The hot dogs aren't that bad, but they're still pretty poor. The burgers are absolutely awful and I'm sure anyone who's had the misfortune to spend £3 on one will agree. Other options are Nacho's and popcorn. What?

I turned up at the kiosk at 14:35, and they had no nachos. Poor show.

I settled for the "Pie", and got as stated, casserole and a pastry. That is never a pie.

I want my Chicken Balti Pie back.

PIES ARE NOT AWFUL CN As your sweeping statement of a topic states! Whats more these 'Pies' are actually quite good if a tad overpriced.

Are you advocating some kind of Oriental human based snack as your name suggests? biggrin.gif

My main gripe is with the people who obviously don't like these 'PIES' who then go to the kiosk and buy one, so when I arrive at the kiosk at half-time they are all sold out. angry.gif

My gripe is that the lady that served me only dished up 1 scoop whereas previously it was 2
and near enough filled the dish. I questioned it but it got me nowhere. Wont be getting anymore.

I like the catering to be honest. Rollover hot dogs are always good, as are the fish & chips.

Each to their own like.

Who would have thought a few years back that success on the pitch meant there would be whole threads on the definition of a pie and how much it cost? rolleyes.gif

I know a great idea! instead of chester racecourse doing the catering why not have another company doing it?.....what about CHESTER FC doing their own catering?

I have tried both the rollover hotdogs and the so called pies, the pie was half cooked and tasteless, the hotdog its self was not too bad ,but the roll it was in was cold----as if it had just come out of the fridge. in future Ishall buy food elsewear ,or stop and loose weight-----which I could do with .

I think they have, at least on our side of the Harry Mac . . . didn't seem many takers at all for the sludge and pastry topping.

My lads think the hot dogs are awesome and I like the burgers but they've got to be drenched in red sauce. At the end of the day it's each to his own, my only gripe is it's still too expensive when you get the drinks as well. People will say don't buy them but if it's what my lads want it's what they will get as I don't want to ruin their 'matchday experience'.

Well, yes. The club don't provide refreshments out of the goodness of their hearts.

I don't usually have anything negative to say, but in my opinion the catering has taken a step backwards this season. I know the board has the best intentions, and were responding to criticism that there was not enough variety in the kiosks, and its obvious they have tried their best, but Chester Racecourse is letting us down badly IMO with poor quality and overpricing, and now according to Resker scimping on portions.

I've never been a big customer of the catering kiosks but used to buy a drink from there, most games. I now bring my own drink and a snack for my little girl. I have seen the offerings from Chester Racecourse a close quarters though and it looks uniformly grim. Can somone please tell these people that oxtail soup ladelled into a styrofoam tray with a filo pastry island floating on top DOES NOT constitute a pie.

Marty:
Criticism of anything to do with the Club, it's volunteers, stewards or our mate from the Racecourse getting the catering contract wink.gif is not permitted.

Because the overwhelming consensus is - if someone does it for free or is friend of a friend, or is a 'lovely guy' they are untouchable - and if you don't like it@@@@@@@ and go away.
Because the void is currently being filled with all the types that watch the Jets and buy fish and chips for a fiver or Nachos, who will soon find something better to do when the results start going the wrong way. It will be the 1500 or so loyal fans who will still be there on a Wednesday night, with over priced food, over policing, over zealous stewarding and and the nice guy on the Tannoy announcing the wrong team for the day and shouting at us!

What miffs me is, why the RC is profiting from CFC. We could quite easily do it ourselves and make a tidy profit and sell reasonably priced pies and bovril.
I used to enjoy the Pot Noodles ph34r.gif

Edit: the Bovril was used as an example of standard football fare, who ever invented it, is a sadomasochist and should be shot a dawn.

£6 I think I saw on Wednesday, they did look very good though. I bought a burger and to be honest it was awful, however the coffee I had was probably the best I've ever had down at the Deva. I would think it will take a while for it all to settle in and for the new company to get it right.
