Wine Press Restaurant – Donnington Valley Hotel

Old Oxford Road, Donnington, Newbury (Nr.), RG14 3AG
Find this elegant modern restaurant attached to the very comfortable Donnington Hotel, but don't let this put you off, as it's a destination restaurant in its own right, and just for corporate residents.

Chef Kelvin Johnson heads a kitchen team that has established an excellent network of suppliers - both local and from further afield - and his menus combine the traditional with the more modern.

A late Spring menu included 'Braised Pork Cheek Terrine with Chanterelles and Pear & Apple Chutney'; 'Pea & Ham Soup' and 'Seared Scallops with Black Pudding, Spinach and Mash' among the starters.

'Noisette of Lamb filled with Apricots, Shank Faggot, Carrot & Parsnip Purée and Boulangere Potatoes'; 'Veal Cutlet, Shallot, Wild Mushroom & Parmesan Tart & Savoy Cabbage' and Pan-Fried Turbot Fillet, Truffle Oil Mash, Oxtail and Lentil & Spring Onion Cassoulet' listed among the mains.

Perhaps finish with 'Dark Chocolate & Lavender Tart with Whiskey Syrup & Raspberries'; 'Coconut Pannacotta with Tropical Fruit Salsa' or their selection of Farmhouse Cheeses.

Lighter menus are also on offer, but smart dress is required, particularly in the evening.
