There is no better way of entertaining your clients or your family and friends than by inviting them to your company’s own race day. Let them experience the thrill and excitement of racing in style. The colourful spectacle of riders and racegoers together with the excitement of the racing, all from the comfort of your own hospitality suite or table, will make the day an occasion to remember.
The Orchard Restaurant is a first class dining experience and tables may be booked in the restaurant overlooking the course where your guests can wine and dine whilst enjoying a bird’s eye view of the entire course without the need to leave the table. There is a Tote kiosk in the restaurant for ease of betting, and plenty of televisions on which to view the racing. Tables can be booked from £60per person (Window tables from £65 per person), which includes admission to the course, a race card, 3 course lunch, afternoon tea and unlimited coffee throughout the day.
If you are an owner or trainer with a horse running on the day or an annual member of Taunton Racecourse you can also take advantage of the fantastic 2 course lunch we offer in our Paddock Restaurant. Tables can be booked here for £17 per person ( Window tables £20 per person) , which will include a 2 course served lunch to the table whilst enjoying fantastic views of the entire course, parade ring and the stunning Blackdown hills in the distance.
Race Day Hospitality
We offer hospitality and sponsorship as a package. Taunton has purpose-built private hospitality suites with full views of the racing for parties from 12 to 150. Each suite has close circuit television which show all of the racing and there is a Tote Kiosk on the same floor level. See racecourse room plans.

The package can include free parking for you and your guests, admission, racecards, champagne on arrival, your private hospitality suite, a choice of menus and afternoon tea. Other drinks are not normally included in the package, however, we can advise on an appropriate drinks budget should you wish to set a limit on your bar cost.
