Had a really lovely meal here on a Sunday evening. We could not book Saturday as it was so busy. Food very good, high quality. Added bonus is that you do not sit on fellow diners laps because the tables are so close together as you often find now.

This is a great hotel. From the warm and efficient greeting to the ambience of the rooms it was a pleasure to be there. The service in the restaurant and bar was first rate. I asked the barman for. A cocktail which he had not come across so he looked it up on Google and it was perfect. The dining... More

Me and my husband both had the duo of lamb, it was amazing I would highly recommend it and definitely order it again. Bar could have been a little better, warm ish wine and flatish larger, for the price it should have been spot on. Nice staff head waiter was very nice and funny. We will visit again on our... More

I ate here with the family after swimming the length of Windermere, the food was solid pub fare but the burgers were lovely as were the fish. Portions were a good size and the beer was good. The kids portions were a good size and made to the same standard as the adults - no frozen options here!! Would recommend... More

From the river side this place looked lovely, however once you order your food it's quite a different story. We came up to Windermere for a day out. We wanted a spot of lunch before being able to wonder around Ambleside, unfortunately we did not get to do this after the fiasco with our food and it ruined our day... More

My wife and I, from Northern Ireland, have visiting Ambleside for the past 8 years. Each year we spend a week in Romney Grange at Waterside, and regularly have a meal in Regent Hotel. The food is excellent, the service is first class and the restaurant in general is most pleasant. Cost is also reasonable

This was a last minute option for us, but the menu was great with a lot of choice but some unusual dishes, and was very good value for money. Service was a little haphazard - we were brought our food but had no cutlery so had to wait while the waitress returned inside and brought us some. The food was... More

breakfast here is freshly cooked and hot , with a very wide choice . the evening meals are of very high quality and once you've placed your order arrives at the table within about 10 to 15 minutes , the service and food quality is excellent.
