I have been going to the Regent for years fairly regularly, as I like its unpretentious and warm ambience. I also like that they have some vegetarian and vegan options on their menu. However, I have to say that any warmth the place might have...More

Came for the giant rainbow flag at the entrance, stayed for the cozy, friendly atmosphere. Don't know about the food, but it's a great place for drinks with friends.

Hello Roberta, we used to host an LGBT fundraising quiz once a month but we have new neighbours in the apartment above the pub and they complained so much about the noise that we had to cancel our events.
