The Royal Automobile Club
At the Royal Automobile Club you are never far from a great meal. Whichever clubhouse you visit, there are a multitude of dining options to keep even the choosiest diner content and well fed. From a quick sandwich or salad after a lunchtime swim to a five-course feast in the splendour of the Great Gallery or the Boston Room, the Club has it covered.
Whether it’s a private dinner for two, a banquet for thirty or a conference for four hundred, the Royal Automobile Club will always rise to challenge. With eleven banqueting rooms over two clubhouses, there is guaranteed to be a space that suits.
The Royal Automobile Club was founded in 1897 by Frederick Richard Simms and its distinguished history mirrors that of motoring itself. Ten years later, in 1907, King Edward VII awarded the Club the Royal title that it still holds to this day, sealing the Club’s status as Britain’s oldest and most influential motoring organisation.
Today, the Club continues to prosper with a diverse membership drawn from all four corners of the globe, two stunning and unique clubhouses, a flourishing events programme and unsurpassed accommodation, dining, sports and golfing facilities. The Club continues to develop and support automobilism through its promotion of motoring events and representation on the Motor Sports Association (MSA), Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) and RAC Foundation.
Pall Mall offers city sophistication, the ease of a central London location and the Club’s usual impeccable standards of dining and service. The food is seasonal, incomparably fresh and served with panache.
The Pall Mall clubhouse offers a comfortable environment in which members can relax with guests. Out-of-town members value the 106 well positioned bedrooms, along with a choice of restaurants, lounges and bars, ranging from the opulence of the Great Gallery to the Art Deco chic of the Brooklands Room – an all day Brasserie.
There are also six impressive private dining and meeting rooms, a business centre and well-stocked Library. The sports facilities offer a modern gym, stunning Turkish Baths, squash courts, treatment rooms, and the celebrated marble-columned swimming pool.
