The Winning Post has long been serving the racing and polo community of Ascot, Windsor and Guards Polo Club and is widely believed to bring punters luck at the races... Or perhaps it's just the place to pick up the best race tips. Set in the picturesque village of Winkfield in Berkshire, this quaint 18th century pub offers 10 rooms, each with a private bathroom, as well as free Wi-Fi, a Freeview TV and a vista of The Winning Post's beautiful, leafy gardens. Guests can enjoy a traditional cooked English breakfast each morning. The Winning Post offers a superb range of Upham ales brewed in neighbouring Hampshire, wines and champagnes, as well as a traditional pub menu made with locally-sourced ingredients. Barely 10 minutes from Ascot Racecourse and just 5 miles from the M4, The Winning Post is highly accessible, and also offers free, on-site parking.

We Stayed here after a day visiting Windsor Castle and Windsor itself. We were able to self check in earlier in the day, and on arrival t was a case of picking up the key. The room was very comfortable and ideal for our stay. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The evening meal was delicious and a reasonable price, the continental breakfast was also very nice and was included in our booking price. We would stay again, if we are in the area again.

We stayed for a long weekend and couldn't believe our luck! We thought it would be a lovely little pub but it is so much more. Our room was wonderful (and dog friendly which was amazing), bed really comfy, a great shower and a little outside patio too. The staff were amazing - all of them but in particular, Izzy was amazing. A great atmosphere, well maintained and near to Windsor but wonderfully quiet.

Stayed here for a stop over from Legoland and then Thorpe park the following day. So easy to get to both nice and out the way so didn’t hear any traffic, nice room, comfy bed! Breakfast was good we only wanted continental anyway as we were off to Thorpe park but plenty of options! Bar staff were lovely and the lady from down south was very accommodating. Thanks for a lovely easy stay.

What a fantastic day! We weren’t sure what to expect and there were 12 of us ladies all dressed up in our hats and wanting to do something a bit special as we couldn’t get to Royal Ascot! Well it really was! There was a huge screen outside so we could watch all the races and the atmosphere was great. Good was delicious and the service excellent! Thank you so much to Simon and Perry for making us feel so welcome and to Mandy and Izzy for all your help with bookings, which was all very last minute! We will be back :)

The place itself is nice it could be a hidden gem if some of the food would be better. Some of the starters was nice but the Game terrine wasn't nice at all, and the calamari it's a snack but four rings of calamari is a bit of a joke, on the other side the stake was quite nice.

Good morning, Thank you for visiting and reviewing the Winning Post, Winkfield. I was happy to hear you enjoyed your other starters of our Venison & Black pudding scotch egg and the Chicken Caesar croquettes! I`m sorry to hear you didn`t enjoy the Duck terrine, as all of our food is freshly prepared and cooked in our kitchen, the Head chef and I have been able to review this morning the terrine from which your duck came from. We constantly review all feedback to keep our standards high and tweak dishes as and when needed. We hope to be able to welcome you back to the Winning Post in the near future, if you would like to discuss your experience further with me, I can be contacted at manager@winningpostwinkfield.co.uk Kind regards Simon Went
