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

We where advised we could use their loo before we used the cafe by a member of public... DON'T... The woman in the shop will have a right go at you... She was nasty to my wife to the point we just walked out... Why have a toilet if you cannot use it... Would never go again.. would prefer to... More

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

I know I go on about the Regent, but they do serve up delicious meals. The staff are lovely, and meals served piping hot with a friendly smile and banter to match! We have been going there for years when in the area and are never disappointed. The shop attached is a very good inspirational stop too, for those little... More

This isn't the fanciest place but it's lovely. The staff were very friendly and the pasties we had were delicious and perfect for a chilly day's lunch. I also saw some lush looking home-made cakes in the display case, so I'm sure they'd be tasty. There's both outdoor and indoor seating and both pre-prepared food you can purchase straight from...

We had looked around for somewhere for lunch, but everywhere seemed to be of the 'bistro' type with prices to match. Fortunately we saw the Regent - a no frills friendly restaurant. Three of us had the cod and chips, and I had plaice. I remarked afterwards that that was the best fish and chips I'd had for a long... More
