Windsor Forest Hospitality Critic Review


The Windsor Forest Restaurant is the most intimate of the vast range of fine dining experiences at Royal Ascot, with a capacity of only 45 guests. It is ideally located directly overlooking the racecourse and the package inclusions are extensive. The small number of guests might make the atmosphere feel a little subdued, however, it would be ideal for a company taking the space exclusively.


Situated in an elevated position on Level 2 of the Grandstand, just past the Winning Post. It enjoys prime views of the Winning Post from its private balcony. This is a Royal Enclosure facility.


The Windsor Forest Restaurant is a sophisticated and luxurious setting with floor-to-ceiling windows giving great views of the racecourse and surrounding countryside.

Private Tables

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


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.


You can expect a free-flowing culinary experience, which includes canapés, modern tapas dishes and an innovative à la carte lunch menu, as well as an interactive Chef’s dessert stations. Savoury snacks are served throughout the afternoon as well as Ascot’s prestigious Afternoon Tea.


Guests enjoying hospitality


The drinks package is also of a high standard. The bar is complimentary and includes unlimited Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Champagne, sommelier-selected fine wines and Champagne pairings, as well as a selection of cocktails. Vintage Rosé Champagne is also served with Afternoon Tea.


Service is left to the waiting-staff, there is not a hostess service, however, the caterers allocate some of their best staff to this facility and a high degree of personalised service is maintained.


There is a racing tipster included with this package, who gives his recommendations during lunch.


There are ample TV screens for guests to enjoy the proceedings from the comfort of their table.

Car Parking

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.
