Set within the award-winning four-star Donnington Valley, the WinePress is a relaxed, informal restaurant overlooking the rolling Berkshire countryside which surrounds the hotel. Vaulted beams and balustrade gallery add an airy, open feel to the well-spaced dining room, while the stylish blend of modern and traditional British cooking on the menu has won the restaurant two AA Rosettes. Food is complemented by a extensive selection of over 350 wines.

Doesn't always follow down to some of the staff running round clearing tables though, who looked either grim or a bit lost, but that's a minor observation rather than any sort of a complaint.
