Location and contact

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

Was dubious about visiting this place as reviews are mixed.... but was seriously impressed! Went for lunch and it was quiet and relaxing. The food was amazing - and really well seasoned and presented. Service was impeccable- so don’t pay any attention to the reviews...More

A charming cosy pub with small outside seating area if the weather is good. We normally call in after racing at Ascot as it is reasonably close. Interesting menu if a little overpriced. Food has never been outstanding but you could do worse.

We took my mum out for her birthday meal and had such a lovely evening here. Lots of candles, making it feel super cosy, delicious food and top notch service. The chateaubriand was sublime. Can’t wait for the next visit!
