We stopped here when attending a party in Ascot. The pub is super, the restaurant served a fabulous breakfast and the rooms are recently refurbished and attractive. When we return, because we surely will, we will ask for a room with a shower - room 8 does not have one. Friends were in rooms 3 and 6 and they had... More

We booked here for a night away on the spur of the moment. We were really impressed with the room, the quality of the food and the service. It was great value for money. If we are ever in the the area again we will be sure to revisit!

I haven't been compelled to write a restaurant review until now. My partner and I stayed at The Winning Post while en route to an event, the pit stop here turned out to be the highlight of our trip.

Really nice country pub and the beer very well kept. The food we had for lunch was very nice being a Crayfish omelette and Sausage and mash, but we were looking more for a lighter lunch like a sandwich but unfortunately not available only full meals. But the meals were very good.

We stayed in this country pub for 2 nights, rooms are adequate, comfortable, chintzy and yes the plumbing is a little noisy but this didn't bother us. Room was also spotless as well as the bathroom but cheap toiletries ( Lucky i had taken my own). Lovely country location but for us a little too much out of the way,... More

The food while by no means cheap is excellent and the pub is in a very attractive position, The beer from Uphams is also a very good pint. However, and I am really not sure why this, the service is at best indifferent, rather slow and grudging.

One of my frequently visited places and in the main it's good. It was a busy evening and our server forgot the champagne, twice.

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
