They’re under orders at the Kikis’ restaurant

Great Yarmouth restauranteurs Chris and Miriam Kikis are once again having their sense of timing fully examined by their close proximity to the local racetrack. Such is the popularity with the Newmarket racing brigade of The Seafood Restaurant – it does what it says on the tin – that they need to keep an eye on race times as much as grills and saucepans.

Some owners have been known to veto first-race runners for fear of indigestion, but mostly the Kikis have perfected the art of producing dishes on the table in time for trainers to eat up at a sensible pace before making the three-minute dash to the track. The late Harry Thomson-Jones had things best organised: a chauffeur driven car would hover outside, ready to whisk him to the races straight after his main course (the scampi Provencal is a nap). The vehicle would arrive at the races at precisely the right moment so that Thomson-Jones could meet his jockey as he appeared in the paddock.
