Many Clouds Restaurant Hospitality Critic Review

Introduction

Many Clouds Restaurant is situated in a large marquee, the Hospitality Pavilion, which is a 2-level structure overlooking the start of the Grand National course. The package content is not as substantive as other facilities, nevertheless, the restaurant offers the least expensive viewing facility for the Grand National. The restaurant is named after the 2015 Grand National winner, who became the first horse to win the Hennessy Gold Cup and Grand National in the same season. This facility was previously branded as the Hall of Fame Restaurant.

Location

Many Clouds Restaurant overlooks the start of the Grand National course, although it is a little remote from the hustle and bustle of the Grandstand & Parade Ring areas. The restaurant is situated on Level 1 with private balcony viewing. Although it is a ground floor facility it is elevated by a few feet to provide unhindered views of the racing.

Facility/Décor

The décor is bright and interesting. Most of the tables are round dining tables, however, it should be noted that there are a few decorative high tables and chairs. Although they provide an informal vibe, the chairs may not be entirely comfortable for the entire day

Private Tables

Private tables are available for 10-12 guests, smaller groups will need to share.

Admission

Premier Course Admission is included.

Catering

There is a selection of morning appetisers on arrival, followed by a Three-course Chef’s Table luncheon. Later in the day, a sweet & savoury Afternoon Tea is served.

Drinks

The bar is complimentary and includes beers, wines & soft drinks. Champagne or spirits are not included.

Service

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

Entertainment

There is no guest tipster included in this facility. There is, however, live entertainment before and after the racing.

Audio-Visual

There are several TV monitors in the restaurant, but not all guests have a view from their table.

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.

Extras

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