Steam Packet International Southern 100

Food for Thought

So you’re hungry and looking for nourishment, the Southern 100 operate their own chain of mobile cafeterias, this includes the cafeteria inside the supporter’s club house. These cafeterias are really good for a quick bite during the hustle of racing. All the profits from these stands are put into running the event. If you would prefer to walk away from the paddock and eat inside Castletown we have put together a short list of places to eat and what sort of food is on offer.

A few public houses where you can simply chill out, maybe find a seat in front of an open fire and enjoy a great selection of ale and spirits. 

In the square of Castletown you can find:-

The George Hotel
The Tap room
The Union Hotel

Still in Castletown but a little further than the square you can find:-
The Viking and The Sidings, These two pubs are next door to the first petrol station you would have found on the way into Castletown.

All the pubs mentioned above serve traditional pub food.


For a quieter sit down meal there are a few restaurants to choose from also, Leonardos which is just off the square is a classic Italian restaurant with polite and helpful staff, The restaurant can be very busy so a reservation may be required.
Just off the square is the Curry Club. An Indian restaurant that’s well known for serving consistently good food. The decor is very modern and the service is quick. The Curry Club does not sell alcohol however do encourage you to bring your own if desired. This restaurant offers take away and delivery.

There is a mobile chip shop that visits Castletown, This chip shop moves around the Isle of Man on different nights of the week. When there is a larger demand, the chip shop will visit more regularly. We found this chip van behind the Co-op in Castletown square. Around the town there will be signs put out to tell the public on the day that the chip shop will be visiting. Just need to keep your eye out for the signs, The chip van will be selling the expected menu from your local chip shop, from locally caught fish through to foot long sausage.
