    Review Score

The Parade Ring Restaurant leads the way on course, offering the best five-course à la carte luncheon after enjoying Champagne, canapés, and caviar on arrival.

This restaurant simply enjoys some of the best views thanks to its position overlooking the Parade Ring, and thanks to its private balcony guests can watch the action of the track too, with views of the winning post.

This package is the jewel in Royal Ascots’ crown, with all the details of the day taken care of, right down to valet parking if requested. An invitation to this facility is one that should not be turned down.

Parade Ring Restaurant Hospitality Critic Review

Introduction

The Parade Ring Restaurant is the most prestigious of the vast range of fine dining experiences at Royal Ascot, with a capacity of 160 guests. Its location offers the best of both worlds – overlooking the Parade Ring coupled with a private area to view the racing.

Location

Situated centrally on Level 2 of the Grandstand, the restaurant does not overlook the racing directly. The views from the restaurant, and its private balcony, are of the Parade Ring and Winners’ Enclosure. Nevertheless, you do have access to an exclusive seating area within the Grandstand (also Level 2), which is adjacent to the Royal Box, from where you can enjoy the racing, directly opposite the Winning Post and with sweeping views of the racecourse. This is a Royal Enclosure facility.

Facility/Décor

The glamorous 1930s feel of the restaurant takes inspiration from the elegance of fine millinery and the beautiful Queen Anne rose, the subtle pastel shades of mauve and pink featured in both the upholstery and floral table arrangements lending the atmosphere a refined and feminine charm entirely in keeping with Ascot’s racing heritage and their association with the royal family.

Private Tables

Private tables are available for groups of 2-12 guests.

Admission Tickets

This facility comes with a prestigious Royal Enclosure guest badge, for which you will need to observe the iconic dress-code requirements, synonymous with sartorial elegance.

Catering

On arrival, you will be invited to enjoy canapés & caviar, followed by a splendid 5-course à la carte Luncheon. Later in the afternoon delight in the Afternoon Tea created by Eric Lanyard.
