Doncaster's newest restaurant and bar. The Old Weighing Room - formerly known as Silks - has undergone a £125,000 redevelopment and is now open. Guests can enjoy dinner and drinks in the unique surroundings of the racecourse - without it even being a raceday! The Old Weighing Room will open Thursday to Sunday and will serve quality British cuisine, of course featuring locally-sourced Yorkshire fare.
