Front Runners Restaurant
Front Runners Restaurant is a spacious and modern restaurant, overlooking the final furlong of Cheltenham Racecourse. This glass-fronted restaurant is ideal for smaller parties looking to entertain at the Cheltenham Festival in 2016.
Choose from a viewing or non-viewing table in the raised restaurant where you can catch all the horse racing action. A guest speaker and jockey will visit the Front Runners restaurant, giving an overview of the day’s races and their favourites for that day.
Private tables of 10 and 12 are available in the restaurant throughout the Festival, with smaller numbers being accommodated on a shared basis.
Front Runners Private Suites
Soak up all the horse racing action from a Front Runners Private Suite at Cheltenham Festival. Each suite has its own private balcony overlooking Cheltenham Racecourse, where the beautiful surroundings of the Gloucestershire countryside can be admired. Each suite will be visited by the day’s guest jockey who will guide you through the race card.
Our Private Suite can accommodate 40 guests and have a team of dedicated waiting staff to deal with all your hospitality requirements throughout the day.
