The night we went to the Regent the restaurant was fully booked but we ate in the bar area. I had the gammon steak & my wife had the lamb burger. The gammon was fine but the burger was overcooked , dry & devoid of its natural flavour. After our knives & forks were placed across the plates they were... More

We stayed recently at a nearby Guest House, part of the same group as The Regent, so decided to have dinner at The Regent on one of our 3 nights in Ambleside. We booked in advance for an 8:30 table, but were phoned as we were just walking through the door just after 8:30 asking what time we would be... More

The Regent's restaurant has always been its USP and the this family run hotel continues to serve wonderful food. Many holiday makers will find that breakfast extends to midday - a brilliant idea.Worth a visit if only to admire the display of hanging baskets.

The selection on the menus is very good catering for varied tastes. It is also a bonus that you can either eat in the bar, the dining room or your own room if you wish.

Firstly, we to the bar restaurant, the seating is very social and a different experience all together, the food there is great too. However for an extra pound or so per meal I recommend the actual restaurant, the seating is much more formal, the customer service is really good, there's also a different menu, which in my opinion is better....

Well worth a visit. Good quality reasonably priced food and drink . Excellent range of menu choice including melt in your mouth slow cooked lamb as a main course. Delicious range of starters and deserts all served in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. We ate there twice

We initially intended to eat in the restaurant however noticed the Bar menu and decided we preferred the choices available. With the Bar menu you have the choice of a table in the Bar, outside in the courtyard or on one of two window tables which have arm chairs and a two seater settee. We opted to have a starter... More
