    Review Score

The Champions Walk Restaurant is ideally located at the edge of The Village, right next to the Guinness Village and overlooking the Parade Ring. It also boasts some rather enviable views of the horse walk, where the horses leave the Parade Ring and where the victor returns to the Winner’s Enclosure.

On arrival guests, receive a glass of Champagne and can expect a relaxed grazing menu, including a charcuterie selection, four bowl taster menu, cheese table and afternoon tea.

This modern facility includes a club enclosure admission badge which grants access to the best areas of the racecourse, including the fantastic viewing found in the main viewing grandstand.

Champions Walk Restaurant Hospitality Critic Review

Introduction

The Champions Walk Restaurant is a very smart & modern glass-fronted facility with a relaxed and convivial atmosphere. It might be considered a little expensive for a non-viewing race package, however, it is the closest non-viewing facility to the course.

Location

The restaurant is on the ground level, located in the hustle and bustle of the Parade Ring area. It is directly opposite the area where the horses are led from the Parade Ring to the course, known as the horsewalk.

Facility/Décor

The décor is bright and fresh, with a lot of natural light streaming through the glass-fronted windows.

Private Tables

All groups are sat at private tables, which feature high ‘bar-stool’ type chairs & tables.

Admission

A Club Admission ticket is included, which is the premier enclosure at Cheltenham. Please note that the racing cannot be viewed directly from this facility. To view the racing, you need to walk the short distance to the rails or go to the tiered steps in the Grandstand.

Catering

The modern theme extends to the catering, which is fairly adventurous, where all the dishes are served as grazing and bowl food. Lunch begins with a Charcuterie selection, which is followed by a four-bowl taster menu. You will then be invited to the Pudding table and the Cheese table. Afternoon Tea is also served in this facility.

Dress Code

Officially there is no dress code at Cheltenham, the course recommends dressing for the weather. However, in hospitality areas, gentlemen usually wear a suit or similar, and many ladies choose to wear county-style hats.

Getting There

The racecourse postcode is GL50 4SH for use with GPS equipment. However, on a race day, customers are strongly advised to follow temporary signs when entering Cheltenham and the local area and not the brown permanent signs.
