6th September 2015 – “Sunday Lunch with friends.”
“Decided to try The Regatta for a Sunday Lunch with friends, one of whom is a chef
We all had a great meal – two of us had the traditional Sunday lunch, which would challenge any Mother’s efforts, Skate,(eaten and raved about by the Chef friend),whilst I had the roasted plaice which was amazing.
With the best of intentions, we were not going to have a pudding, until we saw the strawberry pavlova being served to another customer – just couldn’t resist – and it was worth the calories !!
All in all a very enjoyable meal was had by all – and no washing up !!
Will be going again soon – so will review then, as I can’t speak highly enough of this lovely eatery in Leigh”
30th August 2015 – “A Delightful lunch”
“The Sunday roast came highly recommended. So never having been to this place we decided to give it a try. A quiet and clean relaxed restaurant. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The very reasonably priced roast is substantial in size and we just about managed deserts. Delighted to have enjoyed this little place where we can frequent for an easy and affordable Sunday lunch.”
26th July 2015 – “Great food in a relaxing atmosphere”
Went for lunch at the Regatta.
A most pleasing experience.
Beautiful food, I had the poached salmon and my partner had the steak and kidney pie followed by the spotted dick and custard.
Very substantial, tasty food at a very reasonable price. The service is friendly and the atmosphere in the restaurant is relaxing.
I can’t wait to go again and I am sure there must be a lot of people who feel the same.
19 June 2015 – “A Wonderful evening! Best food in Leigh and first class service”
After trying and being dissappointed by many of the other restaurants in Leigh we thought that we would try the Regatta …. the newly opened Regatta provides fantastic food !!!!!! we loved it !!!!….plenty of it and cooked perfectly, 2 course meal for around £13 each which was exceptional value for what was actually served up to us, and there was no long wait for it just right, and our waiter (owner) was a delight, so charming that it made our evening that much better…now we have never met these people before so this review is honest and accurate unlike so many others one reads, so please give this 5 star restaurant a visit, you will be regulars…..like us !!!!!…thank you Regatta, we so need you in Leigh on sea….
22nd April 2015 – “Fabulous place to go for great tasting, British Cuisine. (Not pub grub!)“
I visited here with a large group of friends, and everyone had ordered something different. All the meals came out together and everything tasted divine, as you could tell all the ingredients were fresh. The staff were really friendly and helpful. I’d really recommend booking in advance though. Fabulous place to go for great tasting, british cuisine.

“My second visit, the first was during the first weeks of business. I would say the food is just as good and the service has improved: not that it was poor first time, a group of 16 is not easy to serve. If you want fast dining this may not be for you: of a table of 4 we had three individually cooked mains, fine dining is nearer the mark, but without the price tag that warrants an army of chefs. My husband eats at restaurants around Europe 3 nights a week so getting him to eat out when home is tough: he wants to go back, need I say more. I have at least three dishes on this seasons menu that I still want to try out. Excellent fish selection, perfectly cooked.”

This is a relatively new restaurant in Leigh and has had a major refurb which is stunning.
We arrived at the restaurant without having previously booked and were seated at a table for two, no problem.
Without going into too much detail we had three courses, one bottle of wine and finished off with the usual coffees. The food was presented well, very tasty, well cooked and good portion sizes.
The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and the service was welcoming, friendly and very attentive. All three courses were served in a timely fashion with no obvious problems.
Would I recommend this restaurant to friends ? Yes definitely. As time goes by I’m sure they will iron out a few minor teething problems and settle down.
I have a feeling REGATTA will do really good business on the Leigh restaurant scene. Visited March 2015

“We booked the Regatta for 4.30 PM on Mother’s Day as two members of the family could not make any earlier. By this time the restaurant were on their third sitting and was really buzzing.
There was an excellent choice of food and drink which all members of the party thoroughly enjoyed. Prices were also very reasonable.
The staff at the restaurant made the day complete as it felt they wanted to make the day as special as possible, which is even more impressive considering how many sittings they had done!
I would definitely recommend the Regatta, a very professional service in a friendly/welcoming environment.”

“We went on Saturday and although it was valentines night we were celebrating 25yrs together and we could not have chosen better ! It was a set menu with 4 choices for starter main and dessert and I thought very good value for what we had. Starters I had baked brie with spicy tomato relish and my other half had asparagus and parma ham both were lovely. Main we both chose fish,whole roasted plaice and sea bass fillets came with choice of potato and 3 veg to share. This was wonderful and cooked to perfection and nice to have different vegetables. Chocolate and orange torte to finish again really scrummy, Good choice of wine and reasonably priced. Staff very helpful, attentive and made you feel very welcome.They have only been open 2wks and felt very sorry for them when the card machine stopped working, which is really out of their control. A couple of people very rude and made quite a fuss which was unfair. Others did what we did and the the men went to the cashpoint not a problem, I made good use of the time and had another glass of wine ! A chocolate rose for the ladies on leaving and they called a cab without a problem .Although we can not return for a couple of months due to a health issue, very much looking forward to going back and think it will become a favourite and visited regularly.”

“Went to this new restaurant on only its second night after opening. The staff were friendly and efficient, and the routine already very polished. Environment was clean and tidy. The food – extremely good! Fish platter for starter was lovely, and the Lamb for main was outstandingly good. Nice cheeseboard for dessert, with everything washed down by a quality Ale. Great evening … will be visiting again.”
