Dining & Refreshments

For both the Flat and the Jumps season (excluding Royal Ascot) we would like to invite six owners per runner to take advantage of our complimentary lunch. Trainers can gain access with their metal NTF badge and are permitted to bring one guest.

Lunch must be booked in advance by completing the form sent by Weatherbys, completing this form, or emailing [email protected] 

Unfortunately we cannot take dining bookings on the day of racing. Please ensure lunch is booked by 4pm the day before racing and make us aware of any children who will be attending the lunch.

Although every effort will be made to accommodate owners, there is limited availability and tables are on a first come, first served basis.

We are pleased to be a winner in the Quality Café/Restaurant category in the 2018 RCA Excellence Accolades, supported by Visit England.

Jumps Season Lunch

A table will be allocated on arrival and be yours to use throughout the afternoon. A hot carvery is served between 11.30am – 2.30pm and includes; starter, choice of main course and dessert. Afternoon Tea will then be served around 3 pm.

Situated in our dining rooms either side of the Owners’ & Trainers’ Bar, a complimentary three-course rolling buffet lunch and afternoon tea is served on a raceday for owners and trainers with declared runners. Lunch includes a half bottle of complimentary wine per person and is served from 12.00pm – 3.30pm. Tables are allocated on arrival and we ask if they can be vacated once you have dined.

Situated above the saddling boxes in the Pre-Parade Ring, this bar is reserved exclusively for owners and all licensed trainers.
Serving light refreshments throughout the afternoon, the bar will remain open for one hour after the last race. Tables cannot be reserved.
