The very finest of dining and racing.

Considered the jewel in the crown of The Club Stand, The Byerley presents a truly premium dining experience that sits comfortably alongside Melbourne’s very best restaurant experiences.

Refined. Elegant. Luxurious. There is nowhere else quite like The Byerley for enjoying a day of perfect dining and raceday viewing at Flemington.

The memories begin the moment you step inside its exclusive, curtain-draped entrance. An in-house sommelier will consult with you to hand select your wine from an impressive list of the world’s finest.

The Executive Chef Ryan Flaherty brings a résumé from the world’s most renowned restaurants (including El Bulli and The Fat Duck). Expect the unexpected, with culinary inspiration and innovation serving an ever-evolving and elevated dining experience. The professional service will be five-star.

Racing is as central to the experience as fine dining. Guests will enjoy their own, private reserved seating area outside of the restaurant for race viewing, included in the price of their ticket.
