Silver Birch Garden Party Hospitality Critic Review


The Silver Birch Garden Party is a marquee facility, which has been themed to a high standard to create a modern, stylish lounge that boasts some unique features, including an after-party for two hours after the last race. The facility is named after the 2007 winner of the 160th Grand National and is only available for Friday & Saturday of the Grand National Meeting.


The Silver Birch is situated looking directly down the home straight, although it is a little distance from the winning post. However, its location, on the bend past the Lord Sefton Stand, also affords views of the start of the Grand National course. There is a balcony running the length of the marquee with a small viewing elevation.


The marquee is superbly themed, with a striking floral and cream décor. There is loads of natural light as the marquee is fully glass-fronted, overlooking the course. 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. The marquee also features a relaxing lounge area.

Private Tables

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


Premier Course Admission is included.


Nibbles are served on arrival, followed by a four-course choice menu. Later in the day, Traditional Afternoon Tea is served.

Bar area within the suite


You will enjoy a cocktail on arrival, and the bar is complimentary, including beers, wine, spirits, and soft drinks. There is also a gin & cocktail bar. Please note, however, that Champagne, cocktails, and premium drinks are an extra cost. The two-hour after-party is a cash bar.


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


There is no guest tipster included in this facility. There is an acoustic band playing sets throughout the day. A live DJ set gets the after-party off with a bang!


There are several TV monitors in the marquee, but not enough that all guests have a view.

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 marquee. 


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