The Winning Post is a beautiful character pub, restaurant and inn, set in quiet countryside, close to both Ascot and Windsor. The 18th Century building, which houses our bar and restaurant, has many cosy nooks and crannies with an original stone floor and huge open fire. The pub has a private dining area suitable for parties of up to 20, and plenty of space in the bar area and beer garden to eat, drink and chat to your heart’s content.
Although the Winning Post is situated off the beaten track in peaceful Winkfield, its proximity to Heathrow airport, the towns of Windsor, Ascot, Eton and the stunning Berkshire countryside make it a popular spot for people passing through for both business and pleasure. Long a favourite with equine-inclined folk, we believe that a stay at our pub will bring you luck for your day at the nearby Ascot or Royal Windsor Racecourses, The Royal County of Berkshire or Guards Polo Clubs. Try your luck at The Winning Post!
Our head chef, Dave Thompson, has a philosophy of honesty in flavours with clean presentation and a meticulously managed sourcing of ingredients, locally where possible and always British when best. We offer a selection of daily specials and with a bit of notice can cater for large parties and special requests.
