Description: 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 with Netflix and a vista of The Winning Post's beautiful, leafy fields and 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.

This place is a little gem - far away enough from the busy streets of Windsor. Tucked away off the beaten track - and very tranquil and relaxed. Rooms are spacious and comfortable with a lovely rustic decor. The bar and restaurant is small and inviting with the staff are very friendly.Our meal was nice, but I am fussy so there wasn't a lot on there that I could choose from - but as I say, I am quite fussy. Breakfast was very nice. Very helpful staff - I left my phone charger there and they sent it in the post with no hassle at all for which I am very grateful. Certainly recommend it!

Dreadful Manager who argued with us when we complained the food was not good,
The steak was fatty & grisely. When this was The Cottage Inn it was fantastic, we went many times and was always difficult to book a table now it's less than half full which says a lot, would never return.

First time driving to London so we thought we’d take in Thorpe pk first and spend a night close by . After endless searching we nearly opted for a chain hotel but so glad we never.
This country pub was everything we were looking for fantastic hosts ,fantastic room ,fantastic food
They also went out of their way to accommodate out two older teenagers
To all the staff at the winning post thank you
