The chancellor of the exchequer has announced that he wants to get the nation eating and drinking again – at least from Monday to Wednesday during August, and each of our Relish Group venues are delighted to participate in the scheme.
Rather surprisingly, yet no less appreciated, Rishi Sunak announced that the government would pay “£10 per head for everyone, including children” for meals and non-alcoholic drinks purchased at participating venues across England for enjoyment on the premises.
“A first-of-its-kind government-backed discount for all”, he declared. “To get customers back into restaurants, cafes and pubs, and protect the 1.8 million people who work in them”.
So, what can you expect if you visit us at any of our five locations next month?
Perhaps the most exciting part of this scheme for us here at Relish is that it allows us the opportunity to throw open our doors on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings when ordinarily some venues would be closed from 4 pm or 5 pm. Secondly, it allows us the chance to introduce the deliciously varied menu to customers who for whatever reason may have not had the experience of enjoying Relish-quality food.
The Eat Out to Help Out initiative entitles everyone up to 50% off their food and drinks bill with a limit of £10 per head. However, Relish is going one step further and offering its customers a full 50% off, with no capped spend. We’re sure you’ll agree that this really is a deal not to be missed, especially as there is no limit to the number of times you can use the offer during the period of the scheme.
The government scheme will not apply to purchases made from Thursday through to Sunday and alcoholic drinks are not included, but as the scheme runs from August 3rd until August 31st (which incidentally is a bank holiday), we’re sure you really won’t think this to be an issue.
So, where can you visit and what delights can you expect to see on our menus?
Set in the heart of the capital of the Cotswolds and along a pretty cobbled street, Jacks Tea Room & Kitchen offers a selection of irresistible treats, artisan coffees, modern brunch and an amazing selection of freshly baked homemade cakes. It really is the perfect setting for a lazy weekend brunch or a coffee & cake break.
Just round the corner from Jacks lies Somewhere Else, a stylish town bar set in an old coaching inn. Breakfast does the business, while lunch brings everything from The Full Local Brunch or Forager’s Fix Salad to a Jesse Smith’s Beef Patty Burger with fine, crisp fries. Burgers are a mainstay of the evening menu too, but other choices range from Mac ‘n’ Cheese or Crispy Chicken Strippers, to Golden Fried Halloumi ‘Greek Gyros’ Wraps. Portions are huge, but try to leave room for a signature Relish dark chocolate Brownie!
The historic Old Prison in Northleach has been transformed into a beautiful Cotswold Café, restaurant and quirky bar. Serving artisan coffees, brunch classics, homemade cakes and lunchtime specials there’s something on the menu for everyone. Our newly launched ‘Shackles & Chains’ kitchen & bar pop-up opens every Friday and Saturday evening for that truly authentic outdoor dining experience.
Situated at the Cotswold Water Park, the Gateway Café offers stunning views and surroundings in which to enjoy a homemade cake, freshly ground coffee, artisan lunch or afternoon tea. All our produce is locally sourced, prepped and cooked by our talented chefs.
Finally, our sister pub Sally Pussey’s, located across the border in Wiltshire and situated just off junction 16 of the M4, is a modern pub that specialises in traditional cooking using locally sourced fresh ingredients. The menu offers wholesome food with no artificial ingredients from a signature Sally’s classic Beef Lasagne, to a Battered Cod & Chips basket meal and irresistible Banoffee Belgium Waffle & Ice-cream.
With so much choice, it’s going to be impossible not to eat out three days a week!
