4th December 2019 – “Another Excellent Experience”

Another visit to this lovely restaurant and another positive experience.  This time we had the Christmas menu.  The traditional component elements (turkey, roast potatoes, etc.) were very far from the bland offering so often found at this time of year in many establishments.  The food was indeed of excellent quality and, as is always the case at the Regatta, the portions were more than generous.  Service was attentive and polite and nothing was too much trouble for Brian and his team.  Highly recommended.

7th November 2019 – “Gem of a Restaurant”

What a great find.  Brian at front of house provides a warm welcome while Paddy in the kitchen works his magic on the food.  Excellent selection from the menu.  The Dover sole on our first visit was enormous and succulent.  A seafood linguine on another occasion was packed with a tasty mix of seafood.  The first linguine where the volume of seafood exceeded the volume of pasta.  Lamb cutlets are to die for.  Melt in the mouth. Cosy atmosphere and varied choice of menus.  This is number one for us in our choice of local restaurants.”

2nd November 2019 – “Really Lovely Little Restaurant”

We chose this restaurant because of the good rating it had and we couldn’t have chosen anywhere better.  The food was marvellous and the staff were very friendly.  Will definitely be returning.”

5th October 2019 – “Night Out”

“Another great night of food and service, excellent food, my wife had prawn cocktail which was so fresh and tasty, I had the stuffed mushroom which was perfect. Then we both had venison, delicious.  Never normally have dessert, but couldn’t resist the treacle sponge, so light and wife had the spiced pears, delicious.  Think will try the Sunday lunch soon.”

17th August 2019 – “Such a Lovely Place to Eat” 

“Regatta is in Leigh Road.  There’s plenty of street parking available and there’s no issues getting a parking space.  Service at Regatta is welcoming, friendly and very efficient. I ordered the liver pate to start and for the main I selected the steak and ale pie.  The meal was perfect.  It was full of flavour, well presented and cooked to perfection.  I have eaten at the restaurant several times now and every visit has been the same.  Regatta has good service, great food all at a reasonable price.  I highly recommend a visit.

16th August 2019 – “Brilliant Restaurant”

“We visited again last night for dinner.  The food at the restaurant is first class.  Always a large selection of options.  The service is spot on.  Everyone is friendly and we always come home commenting on what a lovely evening we have had.  Many thanks to everyone at the Regatta for all their hard work.  If you haven’t been, you are truly missing out!”

15th July 2019 – “Very Nice Food”

“The food is really nice – great friendly service – the lovely lady waiting on the tables makes sure you’re not waiting for drinks – what more can you ask for?  I had the steak & ale pie and that pie was probably the best I have had for years.  We will be back!”

7th July 2019 – “Anniversary”

“First time we have been.  What a find, went on a Saturday night really good food and service, good size portions and ordered a Bakewell Tart to takeaway as well!  We’ll revisit with friends in the near future”

30th June 2019 – “Excellent as Always”

“Visited with a friend on Friday night – so we opted for the Friday Fizz BYO menu.  At £22.50 for 3 courses this is great value.  The menu is a little more restricted, but as usual I had the prawn and crayfish salad to start, the rib eye for main – this is consistently one of the best places for steak – and frenetic brulee to finish.  The staff are always very welcoming but not overbearing.  One of my favourite places in Leigh and always a joy to go back!!”

8th May 2019 – “Little Gem”

Went to the Regatta last night – excellent in all departments – service, ambience, and of course food – will be visiting again very soon.”
