“My very favourite coffee shop!”
Reviewed 21 July 2013 via mobile

I travel from Grantham to visit Regent House as regularly as I can. It was part of my Birthday day out last January. The decor is that of ye olde tea rooms, quaint and cosy with very friendly staff.
The food is good with a good choice. The tea selection is fabulous and the old fashioned china it is served in is a treat. If you don't like little tea rooms then this isn't for you. If you do then step back in time and sample a little piece of delightful nostalgia over a very good cuppa and slice of cake!

“first class service”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

I met friends for lunch at Regent House Tea Rooms last week, My first visit since I used to work in Matlock 15 years ago. It is still the same people and the same excellent food and service that we experienced regularly back in the 90's. Excellent choice of Coffee and tea and a good menu. You can sit in authentic surroundings or go into the back room with the big wooden tables to spread out and read the papers, a lovely relaxing way to spend a couple of hours (especially Sunday mornings).

“Delicious coffee and scones!”
Reviewed 30 April 2013

Called in at the Regent House for a quick cup of coffee today and were really most pleasantly surprised. The coffee tasted how real coffee should taste, served in a cafetiere and drunk from Indian Tree china cups. Wonderful! The scones were homemade and so delicious. A quaint place indeed, the old till a real blast from the past. However, the one place that should be brought into the 21st century is the toilet which is in desperate need of renovation! Come on Regent House, spend a little money on the loo, it is really off-putting in its current state!

“Lovely old English tea room”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

Quaint tea room. Proper old fashioned service. A trip down memory lane with "Indian Tree" chinaware. Good lunch choice including specials board but oatcakes were a little overpriced.
Check out the old fashioned till when you pay at the counter.
Excellent selection of loose leaf tea and coffee available too.
