The Cumberland Lodge Stakes is a Group 3 flat horse race in Great Britain which is open to thoroughbreds aged three years or older. It is run at Ascot over a distance of 1 mile and 4 furlongs (2,414 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in late September.

The event is named after Cumberland Lodge, a house located in Windsor Great Park. A stud at Cumberland Lodge was the birthplace of the 18th-century racehorses Herod and Eclipse. The race was first run in 1951, and the inaugural edition was contested over two miles. Its current length was introduced in 1952.

The 1965 running was titled the John Collier Stakes, and in 1967 it was called the David Robinson Stakes. When the present system of race grading was established in 1971, the event was given Group 3 status.
