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.

Food is really lovely. I had sole stuffed with lobster, with a saffron orange cream sauce. Service is very good. Wine cellar is extremely extensive and well chosen.

Booked afternoon tea at The Winepress as a thank you present. The surroundings are lovely we had a table in front of a roaring log fire perfect on a cold November afternoon. Service excellent really good selection of sandwiches something to tempt the taste buds of all in our party age range 9 to 68. Would definitely book again.
