“ Address: 13 Regent St / Weston-Super-Mare / Bath / BS23 1SF / Tel: 01934 625037 „
The Regent is situated two minutes away from Weston-Super-Mare sea front. The decor is slightly old fashioned but that didnt matter. As you walk in to the Regent you are greated with a friendly atmosphere and it is highly popular! When my friend and I went there for lunch i decided to have a burger and chips.. My friend on the other hand is a vegetarian but the cook was happy to go through every vegetarian thing they had.. The cook was extremely friendly and it was a joy talking to him. The food was a good price, and tasted absoloutly delicous! A few weeks later I went back but i had the food from the take away part of the Resturant, I must say it was the best fish and chips i have ever had!!
When it comes to places to eat in Weston Super Mare we have a fair amount of places, whether you want a take away or a full on sit down meal and I've found that the places are not that expensive for a seaside town which is why even though I live here I eat out rather often.
This place is in the centre of town, a stones throw from the seafront. You can't park anywhere near it although there are plenty of car-parks round and about though it isn't usually cheap to park and luckily I can walk here any time I want to!
The restaurant is like a very old 1950's sort of theme. Not intentionally I feel (it is owned by an elderly gentleman) it just hasn't been modernised. It has lots of leather backed seats and fixed in tables, is light cos its surrounded by glass and very clean looking indeed but not one bit fancy.
At the back is where you get served. On boards on the walls is what is available to eat. Of course all the usual hot and cold drinks are available. Tea and coffee at about £1.20 a cup and cans and bottles at around a pound. The food available is things like an all day breakfast, fish and chips, egg and chips and simple foods really all costing about £4.00 a meal. You simply place your order and go grab a seat and they find you.
The tables are set and sauces and salt and pepper are already on the tables. I found that although the place was reasonably busy we only had to wait to be served for about 10 minutes.
I had fish, chips and peas and it was awful. The portion was plentiful and it was hot like it had just been freshly cooked but my fish was flat and hard and like it was overdone, cheap supermarket stuff already battered and my friends all day breakfast came out cold and congealed looking though again the portion size was good with a couple of small sausages on there, beans, mushrooms and an egg and some toast. She didn't enjoy her meal here anymore than I did to be fair and both didn't look very appealing at all.
There is no ambiance here and the place is what it is. A place to feed your tummy and it probably makes its money more from tourists than anything else because me living here, wouldn't go there again unless it was for a hot drink! The menu is boring, the atmosphere is too and the only thing I can say for it is that it has nice, clean toilets which is a bonus on the seafront! Not for me this place and I didn't like the food here one bit!
