Golden Miller Restaurant Hospitality Critic Review


The Golden Miller Restaurant is only available on Thursday & Friday of the Grand National Festival. It is a smart-looking facility that accommodates 500 guests. The suite is named after the only horse to have won the Cheltenham Gold Cup and Grand National in the same year, back in 1934, a true immortal of the sport.


The Golden Miller Restaurant is situated on the First Floor of the Earl of Derby Stand, two floors below the Papillon Suite. From this location, you can enjoy a head-on view of the finishing straight and winning post. It is a little closer to the finish post than its sister facility, the Sunloch Restaurant (in the Lord Sefton Stand).


This is a stylish facility with a high curved ceiling, and dining is on round tables. The balcony stretches the full length of the suite overlooking the start/finish area of the course. There is also a small balcony to the rear of the suite, which overlooks the Parade Ring.

Private Tables

Private tables are available for 10-12 guests. Smaller groups will need to share a table.


Premier Course Admission is included.


You will enjoy a plated 4-course luncheon, followed by traditional Cream Tea.

Inside the Golden Miller Restaurant


There is a complimentary bar, including beers, wine, spirits, and soft drinks. Please note that Champagne is an extra cost.


Service throughout is left to the waiting staff. There is not a hostess service.


There is no guest tipster included in this facility.


There are ample TV monitors (if rather small) positioned in an elevated location around the suite.

Car Parking

Steeplechase car park passes are included on a 1:4 basis. The car park is situated in the centre of the racecourse, so it is a little walk across the course to access the Grandstands.


A Racecard is included, and there are Tote betting facilities available.
