Owners Dining Room
We offer the opportunity for six owners per runner, plus the trainer and a guest to take advantage of our complimentary hot carvery lunch. This includes a starter, choice of main course and dessert. We also provide complimentary afternoon tea. Timings for lunch are from 11.30 am to 2.30 pm.
As a new initiative for the 2016/2017 Jumps season, owners are now offered a table for the day in the dining rooms and these will be allocated on arrival. Each person dining will be issued with a lunch ticket and Old Paddock Restaurant badge. This is all served in the Old Paddock Restaurant and the connected Owners & Trainers Dining Room, which is located before you reach the Owners & Trainers Bar.
Lunch must be booked in advance by either completing the form sent by Weatherbys or by contacting Kirsty Sargeant, [email protected]. Please note that we cannot take dining bookings on the day of racing. Please ensure lunch is booked by 4 pm the day before racing. Please also make us aware of any children who will be attending the lunch.
Situated above the saddling boxes in the Pre-Parade Ring, a complimentary three-course rolling buffet lunch and afternoon tea is served on raceday for owners and trainers with declared runners.
To continue offering a complimentary lunch with the quality of food that owners are used to and to be able to manage the dining room efficiently, we will be operating a ticket system for lunch during the Flat season. (Excludes Royal Ascot).
Owners of each runner will be entitled to six lunch tickets and we are delighted to announce that lunch shall now include a half bottle of complimentary wine per person.
Lunch will be issued to those with lunch tickets and these must be requested by 4pm the day before the meeting
