I sat at a table this time, as opposed to the booths. The booths are far better as the tables are a bit squashed.

We paid £5.95 for a lovely lunch. I had a veggie burger and chips. The service is so good and the food always great,

They do a free meal if it's your birthday...you need to take proof. I always go now for birthdays...I think loads of people do. If there's less than 8 then you can get a booth...do that because the table seating is tight and uncomfortable

Dear Julie B

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. It would be a pleasure to accept the compliments regarding the service and food, however the details stated in your review are not congruent with the RELISH birthday offer or menu pricing. I do believe your review was of another popular restaurant in Doncaster town centre.

Yours Sincerely

Paul M

We went for a meal, the food was great but they put us on a table what was booked we didn't know any way we was sat eating our food and a waiter comes up to us saying 'you will need to be out of the restaurant in 20 minutes because the table is reserved'. We all wasn't happy also they didn't even apologise and we couldn't order desserts also the atmosphere was too noisy as well.

Dear Chappi_96-

Thank you for your feedback regarding your visit to RELISH. It is pleasing to hear that you found our food to be enjoyable.

It is unfortunate to hear that you found the service to be of an 'ignorant' nature. I have investigated as to why your service was deemed to be 'ignorant'.

I do believe that your visit to RELISH was without an advanced reservation on an evening of high demand. The host designated you a table that was held for an advanced reservation, as it was the only one available to accommodate you.

We do have a policy of prioritising advanced bookings, as it seems the only diplomatic way to operate a reservation procedure. If people do request tables without advanced reservations we do our best to accommodate these as well. If the said table is needed for a reserved time then we will inform the customer of the time that the table is needed.

This is by no means meant as an 'ignorant' remark. I do apologise if this was communicated in the wrong manner, as I can assure you that no offence will of been intended.

Yours Sincerely

Paul M

Dear Chrisstanley

Thank you for your review. It is pleasing to hear that you found the food and service to be of the standard expected, even though we had a system mistake in handling your order. Dave informed me of the error regarding your table on the day concerned, and also of your patience and generosity in allowing him to rectify the situation, and ensuring you left happy.

Thanks again for your patience and understanding, and giving Dave the opportunity to make things right for you.

Regards

Good food but very noisy and crowded with young people drinking.Could do with the restaurant area separating or screening from the drinking area as we had to push our way through to a table
Not enough staff to serve food altogether for our party of ten or more.

Dear mooncow69

Thank you for your feedback. As a business we strive to maintain the standards we aim to achieve. I can assure you that your feedback will be used to ensure that we maintain and of course improve the business. It is pleasing to hear that you enjoyed your food.

Unfortunately we will be unable to separate the bar from the restaurant area as this is the main, open plan, design focus of the restaurant. Many of our customs do enjoy this layout, however it is accepted that it may not be to everyone's liking.

RELISH does attract a broad demographic of customers. Personally I do believe the great mix of customers we do have at RELISH is fabulous, whether they are using RELISH as a dining or drinking establishment.

Thank you for your feedback.

Regards

Dear sandra t

Thank you so much for your review. Your comments will be passed on to the RELISH team, who will be very much appreciative of your feedback. RELISH double burgers certainly do require a healthy appetite to finish!

We look forward to your return visit and thank you for your continued custom.
