This place used to known as the Cottage Inn when Bobby and John ran it, who previously hat the Thatched Tavern in Cheapside, Ascot, and it was absolutely fantastic, my favourite country pub in all of England, in terms of atmosphere, service and amazing food. Sadly it was sold and a "manager" was installed, so rather than the owners themselves welcoming guests and making sure everything was absolutely perfect, a guy with a suit was now there being a lot less hands on. Sadly they also went overboard on the menu getting rid of most of the favourites, although regulars could still get their pint of prawns if they asked nicely and they had some. So menu got more complex, more refined but the quality of the food deteriorated. Atmosphere also deteriorated since the new owners got rid of the cozyness, the little pictures dotting the walls etc, by giving it the typical modern bland modern country pub lift. Also the green border hedge in front that separated the front car park from the outside seating area was replaced by grey wooden boards. Horrible. In short, the new guys turned one of the greatest treasures in the area into a total disaster and even the die hard regular diner stopped going. I certainly haven't forgiven them. Well the food has gotten better in the meantime - I hear there has been another ownership change. Definitely worth trying though and still better than most local alternatives.

I read all the reviews before booking the winning post at £120 a night.We were made to feel very welcome by the staff and the room was decorated to a very high standard and spotlessly clean.A full english breakfast was £4 extra and well worth it-they've obviously listened to guests comments as we had fruit+ yoghurt too.The staff were great and very friendly.Would definately book again.lovely country pub atmosphere in a peaceful location.A real gem and a great find.

We came for the night at the winning post with the family. Our child had a ball and then retired to bed whilst we met a friend and had a fantastic dinner. We were recommended delicious Macon by the barman, and very well cooked food. Bravo- a lovely evening! Breakfast was very relaxed and no menus were offered but we were able to have whatever we liked, nothing was too much trouble. Thank you for looking after us so well.

By chance we stopped at this pub, 11am on Friday and although we were the only customers (it was 11am !!) we were greeted with enthusiasm and served four wonderful cups of coffee. It was so good to see smiling faces and a warm welcome, it was a pity we had business elsewhere otherwise we would have extended our stay to lunch.
