The Mandarin Gastro Pub

Brand new for the 2023/24 season we are excited to launch The Mandarin Gastro Pub, Cheltenham Racecourse’s first walk in restaurant (Non Festival Racedays).

  • The Mandarin Gastro Pub offers a glorious and cosy Cotswold pub feel. Its impressive interior takes its inspiration from a traditional country stable. Here you will find exposed wooden beams, quirky racing artefacts and exquisite seasonal food and drink.
  • The Mandarin is sure to quickly become the must visit destination at the Racecourse and will be available for our non-Cheltenham Festival Fixtures (ie. Showcase, November Meeting, Christmas Meeting, New Year’s Day, Festival Trials Day, April Meeting and Race Night in May).
  • Racegoers will be able to simply walk in and request a table and tuck into delicious pub favourites such as The ‘Bookies’ favourite starter Traditional Scotch Eggs and the Local Burger.
  • Tables are available for 2-8 people and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
  • Priced at £65 per person for 2 courses and £85 for 3 courses, with children’s meals offered at half price, it’s the perfect destination for those looking to make their Raceday experience a little more special.


The restaurant is located in the Club Enclosure, please note the above does not include an admission ticket.

The restaurant is named after legendary horse Mandarin who was the winner of the 1962 Gold Cup. He was ridden by the legendary jockey, Fred Winter and trained by Fulke Walwyn, a four-time Gold Cup winning trainer.


The Mandarin is well situated on the ground floor of the main grandstand and is in close proximity to the Parade Ring.
