Cheltenham Festival

The Cheltenham Festival

Since 2012 we have hosted a Preview Night with Phil Smith, head of Handicapping at the British Horseracing Authority (now retired!) and a number of local jockeys and trainers.

The 2019 Preview Night will be Sun 10 March (Sorry – sold out – email us to go on the waiting list).

We’re delighted to welcome back to the panel for this year:
Phil Smith – Retired BHA Head of Handicapping
Lee Mottershead – Racing Post Journalist
Richard Phillips – Trainer
Sam Twiston-Davies – Jockey
Andy Smith – Bookmaker, Punter & Betting Expert
Join us for a preview evening for Cheltenham Festival, led by experts and raising money for local charities and the Injured Jockey’s Fund.

Pre-race Breakfasts

We offer pre-race breakfasts to race goers throughout Festival Week (pre-booking required). A Full English and a glass of fizz is the perfect start to the day’s racing!

For those staying with us or in the village we can order in racing newspapers and can offer the chance to watch the racing live in the barn – or the Dugout for pre-booked parties.

Contact us for more options or information – and good luck at the races!
