The 2nd time we've been to the Regent for dinner in the space of a month. Food was faultess, tasted superb and presented delicately. To top it off, the staff were very welcoming and attended to us brilliantly throughout the night. We will be back!

the choice in the bar was good but expensive, the choice in the restaurant was not our taste, and equally expensive. The staffs were friendly that's about all I can say

Unhelpful to walk in and be told they can accommodate 2 for bar food and then for the Bar Manager to contradict the foh staff (with empty tables in view) and tell us they could not. When compounded by the fact that he then promptly welcomed 3 people behind us, who had not reserved a table, and showed them through,... More

I am terribly sorry for your review, it was the busiest night of the year so far and we were absolutely full, the 3 people behind you had made a reservation as it was a Saturday night. We do recommend making a reservation with us as our restaurant is very busy throughout the year. Darryn Duty Manager More

We had such a lovely meal the first time that we went back the next night and it was just as good. The waiting staff are very friendly and courteous, the menu caters for all tastes and the ambiance is luxurious.

It was average, ok, standard. Nothing else really I can think of to say..the food was hot and ok, no wow factor. Just reasonable hot food. The drink selection was average. the service was ok. nothing amazing, nothing bad to say. So yeh pop in if your hungry, you will have nice hot food at a sensible price.

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
