We spend several weeks a year in this wonderful part of Cornwall, England. The Regent has a great menu to suit everyone, even a 'kids menu.' Everything has the best quality ingredients and from local sources. The food is always piping hot and made to order. You can sit in the restaurant which is bright and cheery, you can sit... More

My wife bought me a pulled pork sandwich for my long train journey back to Bath. I looked on this as just fuel but having tasted it changed my mind! Great sandwich, best I've had in years. Well done guys. 10/10

This place doesn't look that great from the outside , but don't judge a book by the cover. All meals are home made and the portions are good size and after a main course if you have room the apple pie is to die for . looking forward to going back in June

No, you cannot miss Cornish Cream Tea in Cornwall. We had it here. It was all very good. The service might not be quick, but good. The young waitress was very polite and friendly. She also gave us lots of tips for sightseeing in the area. We also bought some souvenirs at the shop which is just right next door.... More

Had an amazing lunch here whilst on holiday. Even though it was packed (lots of coaches) we still got the same level of service as we had for breakfast the day before. Very welcoming and friendly. Amazing cakes and food in general! The portions are a waistlines enemy!

We visit the Regent as often as we can get to the Lizard. Their fish and chips are absolutely the best. If you can still manage it -- cast you eyes on the selection of cakes -- again, the best you will find.

While on holiday in Cornwall in September this year we were walking the coast path on the Lizard and stopped off at The Regent Cafe and had the BEST fish and chips. Can highly recommend this cafe for it's friendliness, cleanliness and excellent meal which was enjoyed to the full after our walk. Plus they allowed our well-behaved Airedale in... More
