Tote on Ascot Gold.png

Tradition refined, quality served,
events remembered.

Tote on Ascot is the definition of

refined tradition.

Originally built in 1885 and once home to the world’s first automatic totalisator machine, today this charming building has been painstakingly restored to accommodate events of all sizes, from the opulent to the intimate.

The original betting windows and a meticulously preserved open-beamed ceiling create an open space which is warm and welcoming; while the Italian granite, titanium and leather bar makes for an inviting refreshment stop.

Stark, freshly whitewashed walls provide a crisp contrast against an elegant new oak floor and – Tote on Ascot’s pièce de résistance – a ‘starry sky’ on the oak ceiling that showcases hundreds of twinkling light-bulbs.
