Cowes Week Parties

Terrace Restaurant & Club Bar

The Cowes Clubhouse terrace restaurant is a must in your Cowes Week diary. A peaceful and relaxing contrast to the parties on 
the Parade and in the marinas, you and your guests will benefit from the unparalleled view from the clubhouse terrace.

We welcome back Olivio Terra, Head Chef at the London Clubhouse, who will create sumptuous summery cuisine for every palate. Robust burgers and steaks, classic light salads, shellfish platters and daily specials will be on offer.

So, encourage your shore crew to pop in for coffee, or a cocktail and enjoy a leisurely lunch in the sunshine overlooking the action on the Squadron line. If you need to host a crew supper, or dinner with friends, as a member – please book with us.
