    Review Score

Perfect for larger parties the Pavilion Restaurant is placed east of the iconic Bandstand within Pavilion facility, as such guests can look forward to sweeping views of the lawns and of the Parade Ring itself which is just a few minutes’ walk away.

A superb uplifting three-course luncheon awaits, followed by plentiful afternoon tea and complimentary bar.

Thanks to its position within the Queen Anne Enclosure trackside viewing and the winners’ enclosure are just a short stroll away.

Pavilion Restaurant Hospitality Critic Review

Introduction

The historic Pavilion Restaurant is a popular large bright restaurant with a capacity of 880 guests. It is a non-viewing restaurant. It offers the best lead-in price for a full package at Royal Ascot.

Location

The glass-fronted restaurant is situated behind the main Grandstand, overlooking the bustling Plaza Lawns and the Bandstand. Sweeping steps from the Plaza Lawns lead up to the Pavilion on the first floor and it is just a stone’s throw from the Parade Ring. To view the racing you will need to walk through the Grandstand to the Trackside Viewing Area, watching from the steppings or from the lawns in front.

Facility/Décor

The restaurant has been refurbished in recent years and has a traditional and elegant feel. It is a busy restaurant, which can affect service.

Private Tables

Private tables are available for groups of 8 guests or more, smaller groups will be asked to share a table.

Admission

This facility is situated within the Queen Anne Enclosure, where your ticket will allow access into the Parade Ring and also enjoy the post-racing tradition of singing around the bandstand. You cannot access the Royal Enclosure with this admission ticket. All guests are asked to adhere to Ascot’s dress code, which for the Queen Anne Enclosure advises that Ladies should dress in a manner that befits a formal occasion and gentlemen should wear a suit with collared shirt and tie. 

Catering

The catering consists of a standard 3-course luncheon followed by a limited Afternoon Tea of sandwiches, scones and cutting cakes.
