Sunday lunch with 4 generations

Went for a family Sunday lunch and as usual were excellently looked after. We had a small private room off the main dining room. The menu was excellent and so was the quality of the food and service. The value is excellent too and the children were very well catered for. Decor modern and attractive

We were staying next door at Quaysiders and ate with our family at the three local hotels. The Regent Bar was by far our favourite place - warm, welcoming and nicely furnished, we had good first impressions. We had a variety of different food on two nights; each time it was excellent (as previous reviewers have stated, the lamb burger... More

Came here because they have a 10% off deal with the guest house we were staying at, but even at full price we'd have been more than happy. My lamb burger was delicious and juicy, my wife's gammon equally so. The portions were huge! The service was just as good as the food, and we felt welcome, looked-after - and... More

Living locally, we recently went to the Regent for the first time to try their low season steak night offer. We had a very enjoyable evening with well cooked and presented steak dishes with good quality inclusive wine and attentive service. The dining area is very pleasant and not like a typical hotel dining room having a much more intimate... More

Although we had a bar meal rather than one in the restaurant the experience was very enjoyable. The bar tables were all occupied when we arrived but we were assured that one would be available very soon. Since I wasn't able to stand for long, using a crutch after an operation., the waitress found a seat in reception and brought... More

The food was excellent with a great choice for breakfast. Also great for an evening meal in the restaurant, although the bar had a good atmosphere.

Firstly the breakfast was very extensive and is served until midday and couldn't fault. The evening meal menu was also extensive with "specials" and was of a very high quality.

We ate in the bar one night and liked it. So, the following night we ate in the restaurant, which was ok. Then we ate a third night in the bar again. The food was good in both the bar and the restaurant (same kitchen), but we enjoyed the atmosphere in the bar more. The only negative was that on... More

The food was of such a high standard in terms of taste, quality, quantity and freshness. Despite being surrounded by restaurants we were unable to tear ourselves away from the Regent Hotel restaurant for the entire 4 night stay.
