The Cleeve Suite offers a sumptuous four-course lunch with an enviable position offering uninterrupted views of the Cotswold countryside and of Cleeve Hill for which the facility was named. The restaurant also offers guests a private balcony overlooking the final two fences.

Guests can enjoy a glass of Champagne on arrival before indulging in the four-course lunch on offer and traditional afternoon tea.

The Cleeve Suite comes with a club enclosure admission badge allowing access to much of the course as well as the main viewing grandstand should you want to get in the thick of the action.

Introduction

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.

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.
