Had the best meal out in a long time last weekend, really recommend the sharing platter starter - delicious! Don t try the Valpolicella wine it was over priced and either corked or horrible. Nice atmosphere and really friendly informal staff which I like.

I was super lucky to find this place. It's not often you need to stay at a hotel in your own town, but we did, and we needed something close to family in Slough. I found this and booked the last room. Our room was clean and well-appointed. It came with bottled water (in glass bottles) and a Nespresso machine...

Booked for 2 nights whilst attending Ascot Races and had dinner on the second night. Room was very pleasant and nice and quiet. Plumbing a bit noisy but didn't bother us too much. The location of the hotel is very good and very handy for the races, only 15 minutes from Ascot in the car. Our evening meal was very...

My wife and I met a business friend at the Winning Post last Friday and had a truly dreadful experience. I have been to this restaurant many times particularly when it was The Cottage Inn, which was a fabulous restaurant - always full if a little expensive. On Friday, we booked for 1215 but got no food until after 1330...

Simply spot on in every way- accommodation, food- would definitely stay here again. I stay away three nights a week- and there is no one quite in this league unless you go for a five star hotel- and even some of those are not quite this good- thoroughly recommended.

The bedrooms are not large but reasonable size and well equipped with tea, coffee and water. The food in the restaurant is good quality and of average price for the area. The is a small bar, restaurant and private dinning...

The room was spacious and the building is a lovely beamed property with a lot of character. The food in the restaurant was of a very high standard with the speciality Cote de boeuf outstanding albeit a little on the pricey side.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
