Went as part of a package, so was not expecting an average meal. Have to say very pleased with what we got. Nice restaurant, attentive staff, was planning only 2 course but the Moules Mariniere, Stone Bass which was superb and had to try the Eton Mess. Very nice ambience and will be going back at some point.

I have eaten here alone and with our company at team dinners. The food whilst very good is not that varied, but what they give you is good quality. The buffet breakfast is varied and plenty to eat. It has pleasant surroundings and the staff are very friendly and accommodating.

Having just moved to the area we wanted to find a venue for Sunday lunch. Donnington Valley Hotel and Spa is literally on our doorstep so it was an easy choice. We booked a table for one pm and were shown to a pleasant position near the patio. The restaurant was quite busy but this was mainly due to a... More

At the end of the day this place hasn't succeeded in raising itself above the standard of a fairly good hotel restaurant. The wine list is of course comprehensive (given gthe name!) but the food choice and quality doesn't keep up. As far as I could see it changes very rarely so doesn't make good use of seasonal products and... More

Had dinner and breakfast here as part of the golf package. The food was very tasty and the portions were generous - didn't have room for dessert sadly! Will make sure I do next time. Service was also very good - and breakfast was very good as well. All pretty good value as well.

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.
