We had a fantastic evening with the new 'fire and feast' concept at Relish! The 11 dishes were presented beautifully and tasted exceptional. I especially enjoyed the mackerel which was cooked to perfection. Sitting outdoors in the quaint gardens watching the kitchen at work was a real theatre experience. If you are looking to go somewhere which allows you to... More

After hearing about the new concept me and my partner decided to try the menu on Friday and were surprised at the beautiful garden area we were met with on arrival. With a full restaurant and an amazing atmosphere we were shown to our table by a lovely member of staff, all very attentive. The 11 course taster menu, all... More

Secondly the smoke from the fire is very overpowering dont wear good clothes as everything smells like a... More

We visited last night for the 1st time since the change of concept and we were truly blown away. We sat near the outside bar and had an amazing view of the chefs at work, the atmosphere is relaxed and surroundings beautiful. The new menu is a great idea, enabling you to choose what courses you have as they are... More

I was given a voucher for my birthday, so we decided to sample the 11 course taster menu. The bar/restaurant is in a lovely setting, and is very oldy worldy. The whole evening was extremely well organised and a very well thought out concept, with the option to eat, share or refuse each dish (you only pay for what you... More

What a genius idea this restaurant has come up with. We sat outside and I really appreciated the way the tables were arranged so we could have intimacy within the communal dining experience. The atmosphere was just so relaxing and it was a joy to watch the Chef and his team in action beside the crackling and the smell of... More

Had driven past and saw the new contemporary signs so booked in Saturday night Wow! What a great experience It was like having a taster menu but having the opportunity to opt out of dishes - I didn't! We choose to sit out and during the evening we were offered hot water bottles and blankets and big lanterns with church... More

Disappointed to find that Relish have completely changed the menu to a tapas style, preferred the old fine dining menu which we booked for. If you sit outside you will be covered in smoke from the new outdoor kitchen- making you smell of bonfire for the rest of the night. The food was ok but not up the standard it... More
