8 of us went for lunch. We all thought is was excellent. Great staff, a chef that really knows how to cook fish. Reasonable prices. All in all a good experience. Will definitely return.

We were quite disappointed by the salmon sandwich but they did removed the charge off the bill. The burger was well received as was the steak sandwich. Would I go back again, I am not sure I would despite them adjusting the final bill.

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...More

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.
