                This is a flamboyant, rather eccentric pub where one is never quite sure what to expect. Nevertheless, the lunch was more than satisfactory in all respects and I would recommend a visit.

                It was okay. Service was very slow, they lacked menus, and half the items on the menu weren’t available. On the plus side, the food was good quality and the staff are friendly. If you have other options, I would go elsewhere, personally.

                I was celebrating my birthday. Unfortunately there was two separate table for a party of 9. There seemed to be one member of staff on rushing around doing everything. When the food came it was just average , most of us had roasts. The house wine to my horror was £ 19 a bottle. Overall it was a bit disappointing.

                We had a fantastic night last Friday, my sister and I both opted for a veggie pie , (named Heidi) this was very tasty, she had chips with hers and I had mushy peas. The live singer (Jason Lee) was absolutely amazing and enthralled everyone. Really good night was had by all

                We've been to The Regency Tavern quite a few times for Sunday dinner but not for a while. It's always been pretty good but I'm afraid to say that after this last visit we won't go back again. I had the roast pork and the other two had beef. I only had two small slices of pork and by the time I'd cut the thick fat off the edges I ended up with a piece of meat the size of the palm of my hand. The 3 spuds were a decent size but certainly not crispy. The veg was alright but they had no cauliflower gratin left so we had to have the leek one which was a tiny dish between the 3 of us. Two of us had apple pie and custard afterwards (still hungry!) which was quite nice but very obviously shop bought and the pastry was rather spongy and cake-like however, we did enjoy it. What really lets this place down now is the pub itself. It used to be very flamboyant and bright with lovely lighting and quirky decor but after 15 years the decor is still exactly the same and extremely tired looking with flaky paint and peeling wallpaper in places. There was even something red splashed up the front of the bar near the ladies which could have been wine or even blood. Clean it off! My partner rested his arm on the back of the bench seat at one point and got the sleeve of his jumper caught on a nail sticking up! The place needs a damn good clean and one of the ladies toilets was unmentionable! I think all of this was reflected in the fact that the place was not even half full. Years ago you were lucky to get a table without booking two weeks in advance. They really could do with stripping the place completely and revamping what used to be a great little pub. The staff are nice and the live keyboard player/singer is a lovely touch (shame the big piano isn't there any more though).
