The Roof at 1539

Overlooking the oldest racecourse in the world, Restaurant 1539’s roof terrace bar and event space is open after an extensive refurbishment and looking better than ever.

Restaurant 1539 offers the most unique backdrop in which to enjoy a drink and delicious meal in comfortable surroundings, all while taking in the breath-taking vista of the oldest racecourse in the world. Our varied award-winning restaurant menu offers twists on British classics alongside dishes inspired by flavours from across the globe.


An extension of 1539, the roof has been closed for 3 months to make essential improvements ready for the 2022 race season. Offering garden-themed roof terraces with cosy nooks and a range of high and low seating, and a lounge bar with plush sofas and gold accents, this is their biggest refurbishment yet.


You’re welcome to dine from our À la carte, prix fixe menu or just from our nibbles option!


Available from 12 – 8pm Wednesday – Sunday.  The perfect setting for summer drinks and dining with friends.


Thanks to the famously impeccable 1539 customer service, this space is the ideal spot to catch up with close ones, have a well-deserved date night with your special someone or celebrate any occasion in style.
