There’s something for everyone at Royal Ascot, whether it’s the elegant Queen Anne dining rooms, located in the more peaceful surroundings near the Pre-Parade Ring or the vibrant Bessborough Restaurant, located at the top of the famous triple decker marquee and featuring views stunning views of all the action. One can categorise the hospitality facilities at Royal Ascot into three categories; Trackside viewing, Parade Ring Side or Private Boxes and Dining Rooms. All feature their own unique charm and benefits.
Track viewing facilities provide guests with arguably the best atmosphere, with views of the Winning Post and Grandstand as well as the rest of the racecourse and Windsor Great Park. For first time Ascot visitors it’s well worth considering a track viewing restaurant as guests enjoy the thrill of the horses thundering by as well as the Royal Procession up the track. We offer official hospitality within the triple decker marquee, with Carriages Restaurant on the ground floor, Sandringham Restaurant on the first and Bessborough Restaurant on the top floor. Sandringham is a superb entry-level restaurant with baclony viewing, whilst Carriages above offers enhanced balcony viewing with excellent course views. Finally Bessborough Restaurant is a hospitality quite unlike any other: you and your guests will enjoy exceptional hospitality as well as a fashion show featuring some of Britain’s best designers.
For corporate groups looking to hold a large corporate event at Ascot then a private box or chalets is unbeatable in terms of providing the right setting for face time with your best clients and stakeholders. Naturally a private box or chalets is highly exclusive and is a great option for impressing. The view from a Grandstand box or Track side chalet is perfect for creating the exciting, electric atmosphere that will leave a lasting impression on your guests. You’ll enjoy a dedicated service team as well as a choice of food and drinks. Alternatively the Queen Anne Rooms offer an elegant and sophisticated option for private dining on a smaller scale: there are 6 dining rooms able to accommodate groups of 12 to 40.
