Food very good quality. Julie was a breath of fresh air at breakfast. Staff were very helpful when my wife was taken ill. They sourced a doctor and rang the surgery for us.

My husband and I shared our 70th birthdays here with a group of friends. We were very well looked after in a private room and were able to discuss our menus and choice of wine in detail. A happy place! Have ever been disappointed! Have previously been with 4 generations. All enjoyed it, Something of a miracle!!

We had excellent meals two nights running and service was first class. We both had beef which was tender and melt in the mouth on the first night and were equally impressed with our meals on the second evening.

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!
