Overview

Independent, inviting and right up your street, The Regent is a pretty handsome and friendly local serving darn tasty pub food with a beer selection to take care of every palate, classically perfect cocktails and wines to wet your whistle. Reclaimed oak tables, cosy booth seating and exposed bricks will tempt you in for a bite, from signature burgers to bar snacks and sharing plates. Come the weekend, The Regent's got you covered with its all day recovery brunch menu, get-the-party-started cocktails and Sunday roasts to gather everyone around. Our hidden terrace aims to provide a side of sunshine with your tipple whilst at the back of the pub you will find three giant screens and projectors creating the perfect viewing for all sports. We are very partial to a party, and would love to host yours. Get in touch, tell us what you need, and let us do the legwork. Whether you need a few tables for an overdue catch up with friends, an area to celebrate any kind of occasions or a space to watch 'your team of legends' on our big screens, we will nail it.

Visited here for Brunch on a Saturday morning. Was the first people in there as it opened. Service was good, and full english was enjoyable. Always would like more beans, you only get a small pot, but seems to be the norm!

Visited on Saturday hoping to watch the 6 nations rugby, due to the strong sunlight, it was difficult to see the screens in the front of the bar. The food is very good here and a nice crowd

Thanks to the Regent for a great night. Had birthday drinks yesterday and the table service was ideal, especially as the bar was crowded due to the rugby. We had a lovely area reserved for us and enjoyed sampling the various cocktails. The ‘French 75’...More

Hi Paul, We do apologise about the noise levels of the venue due to it being so large it can often echo! We do understand this isn't often ideal, however I am really pleased to hear you enjoyed the food! Best wishes, Jess
