The Green Room Hospitality Critic Review


The Green Room is all about the “experience”, rubbing shoulders with celebrities and enjoying the humour and banter of a multitude of speakers. The day is hosted by the incomparable Mark Durden-Smith, who will interview and try to ridicule in equal measure the numerous Green Room Ambassadors, including Sir A P McCoy, Jonjo O’Neill Jr., Lawrence Dallaglio and Mike Tindall.


The Green Room private suite is situated on Level 3 (Top Floor) of the Parade Ring Viewing Box complex. The viewing suite has a large outside viewing balcony from where guests can view the hustle & bustle of the Parade Ring and Champions Walk. Please note, however, that you cannot view the racing from the Green Room.


The Green Room is a busy facility with tables situated close together which, tends to enhance the atmosphere. The suite is glass-fronted, which makes it very bright and connects you instantly with the Parade Ring. There is a very large TV screen at one end of the room as well as a staging area for celebrity interviews.

Private Tables

Private Tables are available for ten guests, smaller groups will be asked to share.


A Club Admission ticket is included, which is the premier enclosure at Cheltenham. Also included is a reserved seat in the Guinness Grandstand to view the racing, which is about a 5-minute walk from the Green Room.

Celebrity guest speakers


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.


The bar is complimentary including, wines, beers, spirits, and soft drinks. Please note, however, that Champagne is an extra charge.


In addition to the waiting staff, the restaurant comes with a hostess service, which enhances the drink service.


You will be entertained throughout the day in the Green Room, as well as receiving racing tips from ex-champion jockeys.


As you would imagine, there is an excellent PA system for the guest speakers.

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.
