    Review Score

Overlooking the final fence, this premier facility offers much more than just a fantastic view. With its elegant design and winning atmosphere, the Final Fence Restaurant is excellently placed in the heart of the action on course.

Offering a superb buffet lunch with numerous food options on display, the Final Fence Restaurant is quickly becoming one of the most popular facilities on the course thanks to its location and affordable price.

This package comes with a club enclosure admission badge, allowing access to a great deal of the racecourse and perhaps most importantly to the main viewing grandstand, the place to be if you want to be in the thick of it.

Final Fence Restaurant Hospitality Critic Review

Introduction

The Final Fence Restaurant is a popular facility with customers as it tends to provide better value-for-money than its high-end neighbours on the floor above. The restaurant sits directly below the highly decorated Chez Roux Restaurant, and although it may not offer Michelin-star cuisine, it still enjoys the same enviable location. It’s a busier atmosphere, without the intimacy of Chez Roux.

Location

Situated on Level 2 (Level 3 is the top floor) of the largest temporary glass-fronted box structure in Europe, at the end of the structure closest to the winning post. The restaurant boasts a large outside viewing balcony overlooking the final fence. 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.

Facility/Décor

The décor is bright and modern with large windows both at the front and side of the restaurant. The dining is on formal 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 on Level 1, for companies looking for exclusivity.

Admission

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).

Catering

Catering consists of a 4-course Grand Buffet. Buffets tend to present a greater choice of options, although some guests may not enjoy this format. Afternoon Tea is served during the afternoon.

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.
