“Relish at the Cotswold Waterparks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

This seems to be part of a catering company based in Swindon.The food is very good but self service.The place is bright, cheerful and clean with lovely waterside views. Some seating outside by the lake. All very nice but expensive. I consider £9.50 for two pieces fruit cake and a pot of tea for two just far too much for a self service cafe.

“Everything is....OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Food was OK, staff were just about OK..not very welcoming on the day we were there, atmosphere was average. Shortage of food on view too.

“So close to perfection...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is really just an update to my review in July 2012: “Fantastic burgers with no frills”.

If you have been disappointed to find Relish closed it is because they have moved. Fortunately, they have moved not too far away: the location is, quite literally, Somewhere Else, the bar just a couple of doors down (61) from the old premises at 51 Castle Street. In terms of atmosphere and service, this has to be a good thing. It is also nice to be able to get something decent to drink to go with the food (the previous choice of beverage was as basic as the decor).

More importantly, the good news is that the burgers they serve as as good as they ever were. Even better, you can now order proper, hand-cut chips to go with them. The bad news is that they serve the hand-cut chips only in the evening and not at lunchtime. This is the only disappointing aspect to Relish: these are, by a long way, the best burgers one can buy and very nearly burger perfection. The burgers therefore deserve something better than the usual fries they are served with. These really are an unworthy accompaniment to such glorious burgers, which merit chips of equal class.

So, come on chaps (and chapesses), do your burgers the justice they deserve for the lunchtime as well as the evening diner.

“Beautifully cooked”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Without doubt the nicest freshest burger I've eaten for ages. It was an impulse stop, as I was just walking by. Burger cooked to order, friendly service. Really can't ask for much more, certainly worth walking through the town centre to.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

came here for a lunch with some friends, the butternut squash burger is definitely worth a try! Very filling, so you definitely get your money's worth
