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

The pub is pleasant with a nice atmosphere. The service was very good. The food though was very disappointing. The steak was decent enough but the fries were pale and the vegetables were poor. It looked like a defrosted vegetable medley of carrots and cauliflower...More

Just went for a few drinks, seemed like a nice place, good value for money, food menu looked good. We would've stayed for food but all the tables were booked for pub quiz.

Have never liked this place. They redid the menu last year and the food is decent now, so there's that. Still a weird vibe. The waitstaff are DIRE (I mean like 30min to get a drink refill or the bill) - probably the worst in...More

Went out to dinner here. The staff were very inattentive and really could not be bothered. The experience continued with a tiny, improperly cooked pasta topped off with "roasted" vegetable which was nothing more than a bag of microwaved supermarket vegetables. About the worst restaurant...More
