Me and a few of the lads popped to London for a birthday pub crawl, after 6 hours on the bus overnight this hit the spot. Food was excellent, character was endearing and ambience is what one would expect from a cafe. The geezer who owns the place shouts like nobody else.

We returned for a second helping and were not dissapointed. We had steak and chips again which was lovely - especially the chips which were proper cooked and homemade ones. The steak was thin and cooked well and was not chewy. For afters we had a great big slice of hot apple pie and custard and a massive chocolate donut.... More

Let's not get too over the top here. This is a real working person's breakfast and lunch shop. Plastic booth, zero decor feel, straight ahead high carb breakfasts and lunches. That said: a real great bargain. Full English breakfast (one egg, two toast, tomato, ham AND sausage) just 5.5 pounds (half what you'd pay in a place in tourist sections.... More

Went to this amazing place with three friends today for lunch. First visit for me, but definitely not the last. You queue for your food, browsing the wall mounted menu as you approach the counter. Order and pay for whatever you want at the counter. The menu is flexible. It lists gammon and chips. I ordered gammon, two eggs chips... More

Food is much the same as many other cafe's of this sort. Unfortunately the ordering system and the manager shouting at the top of his voice does not make for a relaxing morning experience.

If you want a quiet relaxing meal, don't go here. If you want some good food and an experience you won't forget, definitely do. This cafe in Pimlico is not too far from Westminster and is easily walkable from the city centre. If you drive, parking is difficult due to Permit Holders Only spaces being everywhere but there are a... More

Went again in the afternoon. Much quieter and more pleasant. Hygiene rating is now acceptable. Good value breakfast. Cooked to order.

My partner and I regularly visit here for the restaurant's delicious chicken escalope with spaghetti arabiatta, which is always freshly prepared. This review is merely to draw attention to an incident which occurred on our visit today. The man who takes the orders is never particularly friendly, but today he excelled himself. My partner had asked me to get him... More

Happened upon the Regency when early for a meeting and had time to spare. It's a step back in time to good quality value. Not overpriced and not mean with the portions. It seems to attract a complete cross section from builders, taxi drivers, tourists and regulars but the common thread is they all seem to leave having had a... More

Excellent food, cheap (especially for London). What more could one want? I don't have much more to say about it, but TripAdvisor annoyingly requires 100 characters to post the review. SMH
