The food was nice but I'd say not worth the price. The staff were all very nice though and looked after us well. WARNING: It's posher inside than outside!!! We walked in a instantly felt under-dressed and felt awkward the entire evening. We were quite happy to leave to be honest :')

great ambience, warm and welcoming place, staff professional and attentive (one perhaps still in training) food good, slight delays here and there but in fairness we weren't in a hurry and it didn't detract. If you can afford a £100 meal, this is the place to go.

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.
