Truly awful overpriced food. Even the waiter was shocked at how bad the food Was. Over priced and truly one of the worst roast dinners. The table next to us also sent back food from the menu. Avoid!More

Went in for a Sunday lunch (myself and two friends) earlier today. Extremely disappointed at the quality of the food and I'm still shocked at how the regent think this is worth the price. We all ordered the beef roast dinner. When it arrived it...More
