Cleeve Suite Restaurant Hospitality Critic Review


The Cleeve Suite Restaurant is named after the beautiful Cleeve Hill that overlooks the racecourse and creates the marvellous amphitheatre. The restaurant is a standard hospitality suite situated directly below Theatre @ Restaurant. It does not offer the theming upgrades of its neighbouring restaurants; however, it offers a full package with splendid views.


Situated on Level 2 (Level 3 is the top floor) of the largest temporary glass-fronted box structure in Europe. The restaurant boasts a large outside viewing balcony, from where guests enjoy views of the horses as they race down the hill and over the final two fences. More distant views can be enjoyed of the horses going up the hill towards the winning post.


There is no special theming, the décor is fairly ordinary with dining on round tables.

Private Tables

Private Tables are available for ten guests, smaller groups will be asked to share. Private boxes for 30-40 guests are also available for companies looking for exclusivity.


A Club Admission ticket is included, which is the premier enclosure at Cheltenham. Race viewing is standing from the outside balcony (there are no seats).


The catering supplied in this facility is Cheltenham’s standard catering package, that being morning coffee & biscuits, a 4-course set Luncheon and Afternoon Tea.

Table setting within the restaurant


There is a Champagne reception, and the bar is complimentary including, wines, beers, spirits, and soft drinks. Please note, however, that champagne is an extra charge after the reception has concluded.


Service throughout is left to the waiting staff, there is not a hostess service.


The package does not include a racing tipster.


There are ample TV monitors throughout the facility.

Car Parking

Car park passes are allocated on a 1:2 basis, car parking is situated in the general public areas.


A Racecard is included, and there are Tote betting facilities available.

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.
