August 2015

Just to say thank you, we stayed in room 12 last Friday, it was fantastic. A fabulous room with a marvellous bathroom. The quality of the furnishings and fittings is superb, I only wished my own sash windows glided as beautifully. Gale welcomed us gladly and the breakfast room ladies were a shear delight to talk to, very caring and patient with my enquiries.

July 2015

Feedback on the venue, food and service was excellent so thank you for helping to make the event successful.

June 2015

Dear Charlotte,
I would like to thank you and the your team at the Jockey Club Rooms for your help and the work you put into sorting out the interview day.
Everything worked well and the Senior Stewards Room was the perfect place to conduct these interviews. You ensured it all ran like clockwork with no detail overlooked, not even the parking, and dealing with gave me complete peace of mind.
Thank you again for all you did to make the day go well and I would be grateful if you could you also pass on my thanks to Greg and his catering team.
With all best wishes,

May 2015

Many thanks Charles and may I re-iterate our thanks for a fantastic dinner (the best ever) and stay at the JCR on Friday evening - It is one of the highlights of the year for our members and so I sincerely hope we can find a date for 2016, even if it is not on a Friday night. I will look forward to speaking to you tomorrow to go through possible dates.

April 2015

Dear Charlotte,

Please forgive my being so slow in thanking you for organising our Dinner last Friday night. I must congratulate you on a wonderful evening – everything was superb! The bedrooms were so comfortable my wife wanted to stay for a week! Food & wine were delicious & those who looked after us did so with the utmost efficiency.
Please pass on my thanks to all.

March 2015

We did enjoy our Sunday afternoon a lot - thank you very much! The tour was really interesting, the tour guide was brilliant and the tea was just wonderful.

February 2015

My colleagues were delighted with the evening and there has been a lot of feedback about the wonderful food. We all were delighted to be in the two superb rooms - thank you

December 2014

We were absolutely thrilled with the evening. You and your team could not have been more efficient, hospitable and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble, and it helped to make the evening such a huge success. I can’t think of anything that could have been improved on!

November 2014

Thank you both very much for a wonderful evening last Thursday, it was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. Majority had not been to the JCR before and were rather amazed by all the paintings and history attached which was nice.

October 2014

Sunday Lunch at the Jockey Club Rooms.

It is a pleasure to write to you and say a Big Thank You to the whole team for providing a wonderful lunch, yesterday.

The food was stunning, coupled with exceptional service and hospitality, provided in a truly unique setting .
This is about the 4th time I have enjoyed your unique hospitality, and our two friends who travelled down from Solihull in Birmingham ,( their 1st) we truly enthralled by the whole experience. Please thank all your staff, as they all put at least 110% into the day and it was evident they are all professionals and also enjoyed working at this very special place
Together with their pride interest in explaining all the history attached to The Rooms. I am sure we will return.

September 2014

A huge thank you from us all for the superb visit and programme you laid on for us at Newmarket this week. We felt you pulled the stops out…..and the best moment was when the Chairman said “This has been fantastic; something money can’t buy”.

August 2014

We all had a great weekend. Everyone enjoyed the hospitality of The Jockey Club, the concert on Friday was fun and the racing on Saturday was a good day out (with varying success on the betting front).

Thanks for arranging everything, it all went very smoothly.

August 2014

We booked to stay the night and travelled up through the rain. Bu the rain did not dampen our spirits. How could you be down in such magical surroundings? I can only describe it as spending the night sleeping in history of your passion. To a non-racing football fan I would describe it fan as having a bed in the middle of Wembley with every world class footballer running around you.

As to the BBQ… yes it rained. But hey I am a National Hunt fan! The whole team were amazing cooking and presenting a BBQ from the kitchen. The food was superb! Anyone who cooks tuna like that gets my vote.


June 2014

We enjoyed our visit very much. Please extend our thanks to your staff who waited on us with our lovely afternoon tea. And to Alan - who I did thank on the day - but perhaps you would kindly convey our thanks once again.
Kind regards


 March 2014

I just want to thank you and all your staff for yet another wonderful dinner and stay at the Jockey Club Rooms on Friday night. It is always a huge treat for our group to come to the Rooms and Friday evening was no exception. The dining rooms looked magnificent with the long table so beautifully laid up; the food was exquisite (please say a special thank you to your chef) and the service was excellent. Please pass on our sincere thanks to the Rooms Steward for giving our guests such a fascinating tour and also for being so helpful while we were there.


February 2014

This is just to say a big thank you for all the trouble that you took over the arrangements for our lunch. Everything went like clockwork, and Tim's menu was hugely enjoyed ! We had a fantastic day, made possible by your efforts. Thank you again so much.

Very best wishes


January 2014

Dear all - thank you so much for looking after David and myself so well this last weekend, we truly had an absolutely wonderful time, it is difficult to know where to start! It was brilliant visiting The Jockey Club again, I never get tired of it and it is such an amazing place to visit.


1st November 2013

I decided that it could be the ideal place in which to hold a reunion lunch for all the staff who had worked with me over the 17 years the business has been in existence, and I wasn't disappointed.

As a PR I have spent hours over the years assessing venues for client events and usually have to work hard to bring venue staff up to expectation. Not at the Jockey Club. Dealing with the team there was a complete delight throughout.

 I recommend the Jockey Club Rooms 100%.


23rd September 2013

'Hi Lucy,

I have to say another big Thank You for a wonderful afternoon. The girls are still talking about how much fun they had. Thank you to you, Allen, and the manager for taking care of us.

That was an experience that none of us will forget. Hope to see you guys in the future and look forward to more horse racing at the race course.

Kind regards'
