Alcohol can only be brought into the Garden Enclosure with a substantial picnic and it is limited to one bottle of wine or champagne per person or 4 cans/bottles of beer, cider or pre-mixed aperitif. Unfortunately, spirits, fortified wines and Pimm’s (or similar) will not be allowed on course. You are not allowed to bring food or drink into the Premier or Grandstand & Paddock Enclosures.
