The Tack Room

The National Heritage Centre is situated in Charles II’s sporting palace and stables and spans five acres in the heart of Newmarket. It comprises three complementary attractions; a new National Horseracing Museum, a National Art Gallery of British Sporting Art, and a chance to meet former racehorses and learn what they do after racing, in the flagship home of Retraining of Racehorses.


The National Heritage Centre at Palace House features The Tack Room: Food by the Pantry. It is accessible to all the public, not just Heritage Centre ticket holders, and can be accessed via large gates on Palace Street directly into the King’s Yard or from the atrium that runs from Rous Road car park through to Palace Street.


Seating accommodates up to 62 people inside, with an additional 22 on an umbrella covered terrace. During the summer months further tables will be available in the beautiful King’s Yard that once stabled Charles II’s horses.


It serves traditional British food with a twist using the very best that East Anglia and in particular Suffolk has to offer. The restaurant brings it ethos of all day dining, offering breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea in a relaxed and friendly environment with fantastic quality homemade food at great value for money. Diners will be able to enjoy delicious homemade scones, sandwiches and hearty main courses. By night The Tack Room is transformed into an elegant restaurant, wine and cocktail bar, with an emphasis on fresh fish and seafood.


The Tackroom gets its name from the original use of the building when Bruce Hobbs occupied it in the 1980’s. With views into the Rothschild Yard – stabling up to eight former racehorses in the flagship home to RoR, it will be a unique and enchanting setting for a restaurant/café.


In addition to the restaurant/café The Tackroom has an onsite bakery to provide delicious home baked cakes, breads and take away food which will also be available to purchase daily.


Both the Bakery and the deli will cater for food intolerances such as gluten, dairy and for vegetarian and vegan customers.

Monday to Saturday 8am – 11pm
Sunday 10am – 5pm
