Authentic English Gastrogrub

For more photos and full review, pls head to or Owner Sylvester Fedor Thang chatted with us for a bit and asked if we know what The Ascot is all about. He previously spent two years studying in the UK and wanted to recreate the very best of the quintessential English pub experience right here in Singapore. Lovingly referred to as a British ‘gastrogrub’ by Sylvester, he wanted to serve authentic British cuisine and Singaporeans would be exposed to a whole lot more than just the usual Fish & Chips. The Ascot at The Grandstand is named after the Ascot Racecourse, which is located in Berkshire. It seems that Sylvester is determined to share a piece of what he had experienced in UK with his fellow Singaporeans. Not surprisingly, The Ascot is very popular among expats as the food reminds them of home. I was initially kinda skeptical of the Strawberry spinach salad with crumbled blue cheese, pistachios, bacon & avocado ($18) but the crazy unusual combination worked surprisingly well! The blue cheese was undoubtedly pungent and had a sharp acidic flavor but the sweetness derived from the strawberry slices and raspberry vinaigrette countered this well. The husband and I were both surprised by how unique this bowl of Smoked tomato soup ($8) tasted, very full-bodied with a slightly smoked flavor to it. At the same time, it was rich, tangy, and a little sweet tasting. This certainly whetted our appetite for the remaining dishes to come! The Cold Cut Platter ($18), featuring 3 types of cold cuts served with silver onions, gherkins, scotch egg & homemade bread, is a must order at The Ascot. Obviously, the scotch egg stole the show. It is essentially hard-boiled egg wrapped in sausage meat, coated in bread crumbs and baked or deep-fried. Perhaps I should try this in my own kitchen next time!

Everything says open on Sunday but not... Closed so what's the point of chancing going all the way when the place is closed? Waste of time so won't try again...

We found the food quality esp the roast beef and guinness pie good but it would have been really pricey without the palate promotion that gave us 33% off. More food pics and details at

Amazing Dinner on Sunday

I visited The Ascot last Sunday night. It is a nifty little restaurant nestled at the extreme end of the Grandstand Mall. Upon walking in, the ambience was perfect, with lights dimmed for comfort - giving off a rustic British gastropub feel. The restaurant had seats overlooking the stadium. We chose to be seated outside.

After looking through the menu, we decided on three items - the famous Smoked Tomato Soup ($10.50), the Calamari (I can't remember the price) and the Beef & Guiness Pie ($30). Unfortunately, the restaurant ran out of calamari that night, so we replaced that with the Ribeye Steak ($37).

The food was amazing. The Smoked Tomato Soup had an intense flavor with the right amount of saltiness such that the acidity of the tomato was not overpowering - it left us wanting more of that grungy tangy goodness after we shared the bowl of wonderful tomato essence. The Beef & Guiness Pie had a flawless savory piecrust - buttery and fluffy, with a rich stewed beef filling. The Ribeye Steak was awesome, served with mash potatoes, asparagus and baby carrots. We wanted it to be done Medium Rare, and the temperature was rendered almost perfect. The meat was tender, juicy, and well-complemented with the side dishes. One couldn't ask for more skilled execution of these dishes.

When the bill came, our meal added up to about $100 but it was money well-spent, given the ambience and the great food. We agreed that it was a good dining experience and we wouldn't mind coming back here again sometime soon.

The Ascot is a really great place for dates, where two could take a post-dinner stroll down the grandstand area, or share a sweet creamy scoop of gelato just a few shops down the aisle in the Grandstand Mall.
