It’s about meeting friends and having a good time.

The day doesn't have to end when the racing stops at the Cheltenham Festival

Sun Racing has looked for the best places to drink at the end of each day.

Drink responsibly, have fun and beat up those bookies.

Build up your stomach for the day with one of their hearty breakfasts or catch up for a drink later in the evening.
