Princess Royal Suite Hospitality Critic Review


The Princess Royal Suite is one of the premium restaurant facilities at Aintree Racecourse, nominated by the Jockey Club as one of its Diamond Marque facilities. The Princess Royal Stand was opened on the eve of the 1998 Grand National by HRH The Princess Royal. It has a capacity for 300 guests and enjoys many returning customers. Please note that this facility is not available on Grand National Day.


The Princess Royal Suite is situated in an elevated location on the Fourth Floor of the Princess Royal Stand, with a private viewing balcony. From this location, you have great views of the finishing straight of the Grand National.


It is an attractive facility, having been recently refurbished. It is glass-fronted with views across the racecourse. The viewing balcony is stepped, 4 steps lead down to the front of the balcony. Step viewing does allow more guests to have uninterrupted views, however, they can be a little precarious. 

Private Tables

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


Premier Course Admission is included.


You can expect upgraded catering by way of an exquisite 4-course à la carte luncheon followed by a deluxe Afternoon Tea.

Table setting within the restaurant


There is a Champagne Reception and a complimentary bar, including beers, wine, spirits, and soft drinks. Liqueurs are served with Afternoon Tea. Please note that Champagne is an extra cost after the reception.


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


There is a Guest Tipster included in this facility.


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

Car Parking

Car parking close to the Aintree Grandstands is extremely limited, so for the Princess Royal Suite Aintree has included car parking with chauffeur transfers to get closer to the Grandstands, which is a nice touch.


A Racecard is included, and there are Tote betting facilities available. An Executive Gift is included for each guest.
