At the heart of The Rayleigh Club, The Lounge Bar offers a comfortable and relaxing retreat to enjoy fine food and spectacular views of the English countryside.

The Lounge Bar was recently refurbished with elegant, contemporary furnishings and calm, restful décor. French doors allow natural light to flood in, and give access to a spacious terrace area with beautiful, parkland views.

The Lounge Bar is open to the public 7 days a week and serves food from 8am until 5pm. A full English or Continental Breakfast is served until 11.30am and Costa Coffee is available all day.

Whether you’re meeting a friend for a quick chat or having a celebration lunch with all the family, you’ll find a warm and friendly atmosphere in The Lounge Bar. Children are always welcome.
