Welcome to the Cotswold Hideout

A HIDEOUT has been created at the Cotswold setting of the Gateway Café at Lake 6, Cotswold Water Park! it aims to be an emporium of tasty food, drinks, and treats, with a revolutionary pick ‘n’ mix menu concept of the eateries on site as well as Bar@Lake6 shaking up cocktails.

We are delighted to share the news that our new HIDEOUT offers a great opportunity to socialise in the winter evenings: to enjoy a ‘Hygge’ style of dining under white lights, with warmth, sharing plates, a pick ‘n’ mix menu choice – a spacious, yet cosy meeting place for friends and family, and dogs are more than welcome!

The Hideout is a real winter wonderland of tasty food and drink. It offers a spectacular space for visitors to relax with friends and family and enjoy a range of street-style dishes, cocktails and juices, gives us great pride. Anyone, at any table, can choose from each of the menus on offer. It is a true food and drink pick ‘n’ mix concept – a wonderful emporium under one stretch tent roof!

For the first time, Relish introduces chef Ben Thompson of Pit & Plate to Lake 6. His rustic way with food – nomadic in style – is created from fresh, locally, sourced ingredients. Ben trained under Raymond Blanc at le Manoir aux Auat’saisons and Marco Pierre-White, learning how to prepare top-quality, Michelin-star dishes. The inspiration for the brand comes from owner and chef Ben’s travels and experiences of culture, gathering, holidays, and meeting and working with influential chefs, of late chef Francis Malmann and Tom Bray of Country Fire Kitchen. His offer aims to be a visual, fun, tasty experience – all cooked in the great outdoors.

Pizzeria 720°, a favourite at Lake 6, offers wood-fired pizzas. With 12 pizza varieties to choose across both 9” and 12” options, there’s something for everyone – from Margherita through to Meat Sweats, the trusted Hawaiian to the indulgent Truffle Taleggio!  Gluten-free is also available.   ​

The BAR@Lake6 is launching its new cocktail menu incorporating five festive-themed delights, plus classic and contemporary choices, including the signature rum-coffee based Espresso Martini. The bar will also be serving its own-label Lake 6 lager, brewed by sponsors Freedom Brewery, along with soft drinks, mulled wine, artisan coffees, and luxurious hot chocolates to keep you warm this winter season.

For those with a sweet tooth, the neighbouring Christmas Stalls will be offering marshmallows for toasting, locally made fudge, doughnuts, candy floss, and chilli or caramelized nuts.
