Food & Drink

WinePress Restaurant at Donnington Valley Hotel

WinePress Restaurant

This foodie and wine destination manages to tread the tightrope between the fine food and excellent service you would expect from a multi-award-winning restaurant without being overly fussy or formal. Guests can savour modern British cuisine in stylish surrounds, with a stunning dark wood balustrade gallery and conservatory adorned by artworks. The menu reflects the changing seasons and locally sourced produce. The wine list is exceptional. Please reserve a table for dinner in advance.

Wines at Donnington Valley

Wine List

Food at the WinePress Restaurant is complemented by Donnington Valley's award-winning wine list of over 200 wines, 30 of which are available by the glass. Wines range from the more obscure, such as wines from India, to the classics of Bordeaux. Wines from the owner's winery - the Peter Michael Winery in California's Sonoma Valley - are showcased on the wine list. The list has been innovatively grouped into easy to understand sections, such as 'crisp and dry' and 'fragrant' for the whites, and 'light and fruity' and 'big and bold' for the reds. The idea is to help customers select their ideal choice of wine, experimenting with and enjoying lesser known wines along the way. If in any doubt, there is an expert sommelier on hand to help.

The Bar at Donnington Valley

The Bar

The Bar is a relaxed and inviting area for an early morning coffee, a lazy Sunday lunch or a late night cocktail. The bar menu champions the best of British cooking, serving up soup and mushrooms on toast for a starter, fish and chips or braised pork belly for a main, and, to finish, sticky toffee pudding. There are also platters and puddings for you to share. Think unpretentious, flavoursome cooking.
