Arguably the centrepiece of the summer social calendar, Royal Ascot runs from Tuesday 19 to Saturday 23 June in 2012. Myriad dining options are available, where racegoers will be able to enjoy the top-end food, wine, service & ambience. With 11 fine dining restaurants, there are a number of packages to suit tastes & budgets. Groups can choose from the Waterside Inn at the Panoramic, where last year the dining space was transformed into the Michelin-starred Waterside Inn for the festival. We also love the Bessborough Restaurant, where a top-end fashion show takes place before the racing. All packages include a Champagne reception, four or five-course lunch, afternoon tea & complimentary bar. Restaurants may be hired in their entirety if requested. Alternatively, tables may be booked exclusively for 10 people or can be shared for smaller groups.
