14 Jul Date for your Diary – Jockey Club Rooms Sunday Lunch 15th October
Following yet another successful lunch at the Jockey Club Rooms in Newmarket last year, we have again booked a table for lunch at the Rooms for Sunday 15th October.
Located on the High Street in the centre of the town known as ‘HQ’, The Jockey Club Rooms have been at the heart of British racing for over 250 years.
Founded in the middle of the eighteenth century it was originally a social club aiming to promote good fellowship among racing and thoroughbred breeding enthusiasts. In 1752 The Jockey Club leased a plot of land in Newmarket where a Coffee House was constructed as a meeting place for the Club’s members. On the expiration of the lease, The Jockey Club bought the freehold, which is known today as ‘The Jockey Club Rooms’. Over the years the buildings have grown as the result of a series of additions to the original Coffee Room.
