Donnington Grove is a perfect backdrop for gorgeous wedding photographs, with its attractive exterior, romantic bridge over the River Lambourn, ducks and swans, a willow tree by the river bank and a Japanese ornamental garden, it’s everything you’d want and more for the WOW factor in your wedding photos.

There is ample parking for guests and a choice of generously reduced room rates for all of the wedding party. Donnington Grove is licensed for Civil Ceremonies with three rooms in the Manor that can host a small ceremony for up to 45 guests and another than can accommodate up to 100. The Japanese Pagoda, tucked away in a private walled garden, is suitable for up to 50 guests for a ceremony. Up to 120 guests can be accommodated for a seated wedding breakfast and up to 200 guests for an evening reception.

For all Civil Ceremonies, arrangements have to be made separately with the Newbury Registry Office, so it’s recommended that you check their availability before booking your wedding at the hotel. The contact telephone number for the Registry Office is 01635 279230 and this can be done up to 12 months before the date of your wedding.

New for 2019: Beau’s Bar and Restaurant. The famous Beau Brummel, son of William Brummel, lived here at Donnington Grove in the late 18th Century. Beau was famously known as a Dandy and a fashion icon of his time and introduced the style for gentlemen to wear and shirt and cravat – with a jacket! Raise a glass at Beau’s to Great British style, fashion and tradition as we create and serve our new menus with this provenance in mind.
