Within easy reach of Ascot and Royal Windsor racecourses, the aptly named The Winning Post is one of the Upham Group's gastro pubs in Winkfield, Berkshire, with 12 charming boutique hotel rooms. This 18th-century inn has plenty of cosy nooks, original stone floors and a huge open fire.
Their chef is passionate about local culture and menus and has travelled the world creating fabulous dishes. His focus is and always has been on authentic flavours using local, seasonal produce.
Expect meticulous presentation and constantly changing menus using the best short season produce such as asparagus, grouse and native lobsters.
The real ales on the extensive drinks menu are brewed by the Upham Brewery in Hampshire by a small, dedicated team using traditional methods.
Within easy reach of London Heathrow airport, The Winning Post is a great choice if you have an early flight or late arrival.
Ascot and Windsor are both just down the road and are home to some fantastic horse racing and the Royal Windsor Horse Show.
The PGA Championships take place at the world famous Wentworth Club in nearby Surrey and the Henley Royal Regatta is a favourite amongst return guests.
Kids (and adults!) will love a trip to Legoland, and if you love theme parks then head to Thorpe Park in the neighbouring county, Surrey.
