The Villiers Club is an entry-level hospitality facility which features a fairly basic package offering in the Village Enclosure. It has a large 750 capacity but only tends to operate on the last three days of Royal Ascot.
The Villiers Club is situated opposite the Grandstand inside the course. The location is immediately inside the track opposite the spectacle of the huge Grandstand. Race viewing is from the lawns at the rails, bringing you close to the action but without an elevated view.
The high-tech marquee has a fairly basic interior and the seating is very casual with high and low seating inside and out. This less formal setting may suit some, especially due to the low price-point, however, companies wanting a more formal entertaining experience would be best avoiding this facility and consider the Restaurant in the Village instead.
Private tables cannot be reserved in advance, the seating is casual on a first-come basis.
You will receive a Village Enclosure admission ticket; you cannot access the Royal Enclosure or the Queen Anne Enclosure with this ticket. You cannot therefore cross the track to go to the Grandstand or Parade Ring. All guests are asked to adhere to Ascot’s dress code, which for the Village 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.
The catering consists of 2-course bowl food, followed later by Afternoon Tea.
There is a complimentary bar consisting of beers, wines, and soft drinks. Please note that Champagne and spirits are at an extra cost.
Service is left to the waiting-staff, there is not a hostess service.
There is no racing tipster included in this package. Guests can stroll through the Village Enclosure, from Thursday to Saturday, at their leisure. From DJs and reinvented brass bands to Jazz and Funk at the Bandstand, three stages of music move this enclosure to a tempo of its own throughout the day until 9 pm. Please note, however, that the Village Enclosure might be a little rowdy for some.
There are a few TV monitors located in the marquee.
Car park passes are allocated on a 1:2 basis, in one of the car parks conveniently located for this facility.
A Racecard & Racing Paper is included and there are Tote betting facilities available.
If travelling by car and using Sat Nav for your journey, the Postcode is SL5 7LX. If by rail South Western Railway runs services to Ascot from both Reading, Guildford and London Waterloo. The railway station is a seven-minute walk from the racecourse.
