About the Club

Local COVID alert level: High ‘Tier 2’
As a result of the latest government restrictions, the Club is currently only permitted to accommodate one household or ‘support bubble’ for any private dining or table booking.
For further information on what is currently permissible, please visit https://www.gov.uk/guidance/local-covid-alert-levels-what-you-need-to-know

The Club continues to operate in a COVID-secure manner, including restrictions on table service and collection of member and guest data to support NHS Test and Trace.

Should you have a table booked in the Dining Room or Cowdray Lounge, we will make every effort to seat parties from more than one household on adjacent tables to ensure the best experience for members and guests whilst working within these guidelines.
Thank you for your support and understanding at this time.

The Birth of the RAF Club

In October 1918, the first Viscount Cowdray, President of the Air Board, sent a letter outlining his practical support for the establishment of an RAF Club to the then Chairman of the Royal Flying Corps Club, Sir Sefton Brancker. Enclosed was a cheque for £100,000 “…sufficient to ensure a permanent Club House worthy of the airmen and of their ‘brilliant and superlative heroic work.’”
