Unforgettable Hospitality

Cheltenham prides itself on providing diners with stunning dishes for every occasion. Our raceday menus are designed with three key elements in mind: seasonality, provenance of ingredients, and sourcing of local British produce that is farmed and caught in a sustainable and ethical way.

Sitting in the heart of the Cotswolds, Cheltenham works with a wealth of local farmers and producers to source ingredients, which often come straight from the field to the plate.

Jockey Club Catering stands for great service, great food and a great experience. We strive to achieve this every day.
