You can't not like the Regent - it has a personality of its own. That said the vile interior decor colours and bank of microwaves can't help but put you on guard! There's clearly been a bar here for decades but no original features visible. It's corner location gives a pleasant atmosphere inside. The clientele is eeeeer grungy I'd say!... More

Friendly bar where staff give a nice welcome. Good choice of beer and food. Great eclectic mix of music. I've held back on one star as it's a wee bit overpriced.

This is a fantastic bar - it lacks pretentiousness and is quirky, friendly in nature and is LGBT friendly. The pub is brightly coloured with fairy lights, has a great atmosphere and boardgames. We had a great time with drinks, snacks and enjoying the artwork on offer. It is my favourite bar in Edinburgh!

I came here with my son who lives nearby when I visited last week. I was really pleased to see a proper pub without all the rubbish we encounter in most bars these days -blackboards minimalist show-no the Regent is a proper pub with good beers.I am vegan and was so pleased to be able to order a whole meal,...

A couple of travellers and I from a bus tour around Scotland decided to give The Regent a try on one of the nights we were in town and we had a great experience. Excellent food, friendly staff, quirky but low key atmosphere. I definitely recommend The Regent.
