On Monday 6th March we will be celebrating one of the most anticipated events in the National Hunt season, the Cheltenham Festival. Join us at The Fox, as we host our Mark The Card Night with well-known faces from the world of racing.

The evening will begin in our Bar with pre-dinner cocktails at 6pm, before we head into our Saddle Room and Bar Parlour where trainer and Telegraph racing columnist Charlie Brooks will introduce the evening’s activities and special guests.

Head Chef Alan and his team have created a delicious seasonal menu of sharing dishes for each table.

On the Table

Black treacle soda bread, whipped smoked lardo

Smokin’ Brothers smoked salmon, horseradish crème fraîche, watercress and radish salad

Shell on prawns, Marie Rose sauce

To Follow

Wootton organic chicken, smoked ham hock and Oddington wild garlic pie

Mash, greens, and gravy


Tomlinson’s Yorkshire rhubarb and Bramley apple crumble, Bird’s custard

With the evening in full swing, our guest jockeys, trainers, breeders, and owners will host a tipster session to discuss the week ahead.

Alongside Charlie Brooks, our experts include Jacqui O’Neill, trainers Charlie Longsdon, Martin Keighley, Ben Pauling and Graeme McPherson alongside jockeys Colin Brown, Max Kendrink and Jonjo O’Neill Jr.

Kickstart the jump racing event of the year and dance away the evening to live music in the Bar.

The evening costs £75 per person, which includes food and a welcome drink. All other drinks are chargeable on the night. We recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.

To book, please email the team on [email protected].

Unfortunately, due to the nature of the event and limited kitchen space, we’re unable to accommodate any dietary requirements or allergies.

A Photo Finish

After a long day at the races, why not race to bed in one of our pub rooms or self-accommodation cottages.

Guests joining us for our Cheltenham Preview Night will also receive a special rate when staying with us. Please contact the team on [email protected] for further details.
