Met some friends in Balham and after a poor experience at another establishment we headed over to the Regent. The venue was very nice, the staff were friendly and helpful and the food was excellent. We will be back!

Always been a nice pub but sine the refurb in Sept 2015, the pub is infested with small black flies. This has been over 6 months and the management appear not to have done anything about it. Would never eat there on this basis.
