As I don't live in London I was shocked by the completely necessary rudeness and aggression of the staff in this cafe. In fact I cannot fully rate the actual food in this place as the anger of being treated so badly has still left me genuinely upset. Having mistakenly sat down whilst my partner was ordering I was ritually... More

Proper cafe, could have come straight out of east end. This place has the most amazing chips, try and resist ordering chips with any course, i had to have chicken salad half & half the last time i visited. The steak pie the previous time was top drawer, and even when i was trying to be good for lent i... More

The Regency provides consistently excellent breakfasts. Don't expect upmarket surroundings or anything fancy. But if you're after a good breakfast then it's no surprise that The Regency keeps on scoring so highly. The kitchen is run like a production line - very slick. It's the perfect place for a breakfast.

Had scampi, chips and beans and fruit pie and ice cream all for less than £8 and while I left very full, food is not the tastiest. Scampi tasted of very little but its probably more about the 'greasy spoon' experience. Brace yourself for the small friendly woman taking the orders who then bellows out when they're ready worthy of... More

One of the most well known greasy spoons in Westminster. Breakfast is good and value for money. Lady calling out to pick up your food is great, i do sometimes think she's a bloke though, very deep rumbling voice. Regency hasn't only stared in a few films (and minor dramas) but it takes it to another level and embraces it.... More

Where shall we start, we are all so obsessed today and brainwashed by marketing ad, TV, etc... That we tend to forget an important part of our life. Soul and feelings and this is what this little spot in London gives me. Even if I was not born in the 60's it brings be Back to the Future simplifying and... More

This cafe near Buckingham Palace ( Regency and Page streets) is the 'business' for plain good value reasonably priced proper food. The breakfast is excellent for £5.50 or eggs benedict at £5.00. Lunches are also served and looked great, especially the chips.... Queue to get in but plenty of tables available, fast service and turnover, you won't have to wait... More

This is a no nonsense, what you see is what you get, type of place that serves great lunchtime grub at a reasonable price. The bare fifties/sixties type decor in my view adds to the overall experience, as does the unique manner in which each meal is announced - I've been on numerous occasions over a number of years and...

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
