    Review Score

The Leger Lounge is a casual hospitality suite within the Club 1776 marquee structure, tailored for less formal groups that still want an excellent race day experience.

On arrival, guests can enjoy a glass of Pimms, along with some nibbles and then enjoy Yorkshire tapas or ‘Yapas’, in a colourful take on a buffet lunch.

There is casual seating throughout the lounge and private lawn, and thanks to its trackside position there are spectacular views of the racing action.
