We had eaten here once before some time ago and the quality of food and service were every bit as good on this visit. We hadn't booked and yet we were accommodated quickly. Our platter starter was beautiful and filling and the steaks we ordered were well cooked as ordered. A real treat during a walking weekend and we'll be... More

This was our sixth visit to the Regent. As usual it was a very comfortable stay the room was very comfortable with good quality bedding and towels, our only comment was that the bath was very high which made it difficult to get into to use the shower. The menu was very restricted compared to previous years, this may be... More

Could have eaten it 3 times!!! A slightly higher price than I normally pay but it showed in the food quality and service from friendly staff. Would... More

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
