About Relish Real Burgers - St Albans

We visited Relish Real Burgers last week for a dinner with two children. The staff were really welcoming and after finding it was our first time there they explained that there is a games corner and children are welcome to get some games from there. They did, and they brought some games to the table which made waiting for food seem really short and pleasant. The children were busy playing whilst the adults chatted and after eating we all shared a board game whilst having our coffees/milkshakes. The only reason the score is not 6/6 is that the food could have been better. The burgers were rather cold (we didn't mind that much but I know some people who would!). All considered , we will be back. The kids loved it! And we had a great evening together.

It's the run up to Christmas and there was 19 of us on one table including 9 children, so quite a handful for the guys at Relish, a pre-Panto lunch. The staff were fantastic and attended to the children as well as the adults. The food arrived quickly and uniformly for all the diners and the standard of food was absolutely fantastic. We were well attended to during the entire 2 hour lunch and I would recommended this restaurant to any foodie, the presentation was great and a bit quirky and the flavours were fabulous, get yourselves down to Relish at your next opportunity

Great food and service. We ordered the halloumi stack, classic burger and chicken stack between 2 of us. Plus sides of apple and beetroot slaw (definitely recommend) and fries. Food was delicious, although there was too much really but we wanted to try everything. Total bill came to less than £35 including one regular and one alcoholic shake. Great place to take children - very family friendly, with board games and puzzles for you to play at your table. We will definitely be going back!

Amazing friendly staff who made us and the children very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Food arrived exactly as everyone had ordered and staff knew who ordered what - impressive as we were a group of 9. All meals were delicious and games for the children made it an excellent evening out.

Fab burger place. The staff are very friend and professional The food was fantastic. I had the yanky. Only problem was it was too big to fit my mouth around lol. So I bit mad but I ate it with a knife and fork. Milkshakes are amazing especially the Nutella one.

Good service, lovely environment with helpful and attentive staff. However, as a vegetarian, the choices were limited and I was disappointed with my main meal. On the plus side, my meat eating companions enjoyed their burgers. The desserts were delicious, but defeated all of us, as they are enormous portions! Overall a positive experience.

Nice burgers, a bit quiet though as it was 1800 and it's a little off the beaten track by the arena. We just missed the 20% off as we got in at 1750, but by the time we ordered it was 1805 which was a bit annoying...but generally a nice experience.

Amazing food and great service. Such a relaxed environment. Love that there's a box of board games you can play at the table while you wait for your food. Great healthy kids meals.

Got a table at very short notice. Excellent food as always. Did have to wait a while for the bill, but assuming that was because the waiting staff didn't hear us ask for it the 1st time. Would recommend

The staff made extra an effort to give me daughter a dairy free dessert due to her food allergies. The food came quickly even though we were told there could be a wait and the kids loved their meals.

The food was brilliant and service was polite and fast but not rushed. Only issue was they didn't seen to know we had a reservation, this didn't really matter though as we were seated straight away.

Our food was lovely and the atmosphere was great. The burgers aren't expensive and we got our food really quickly after order! Unfortunately, our waitress wasn't very patient and seemed to be a bit unmotivated.

Creative selection of toppings for the burgers, tremendous hard shakes and the kids' menu gives them some really good choices that are keeping in line with the main menu.

Great burgers but the service wasn't good on this occasion. I waited a long time to be served (and had to beckon someone over) and then had to ask for my drinks order three times.

One of the best burgers I have EVER tasted... but the ketchup was 'off' and exploded when I opened it, therefore spoiling the overall experience.

Good place in an excellent location but burger was poor to the point of being inedible. Over cooked meat and the sauce had congealed into the bun. Onions vile.
