My girlfriend and I went to The Regency Restaurant one evening last week and I have to say this was one of the worst dining experiences I’ve encountered. I ordered a mackerel pate as a starter and I was shocked to see this come with one thin slice of bread which I would describe to be from a cheap own brand supermarket. For a main course I had the rainbow trout which was accompanied by new potatoes - these potatoes were obviously from a tin. The food came out relatively satisfactory timing but the service was generally slow. After finishing our main course I subsequently asked for the bill (twice). Upon receiving it I decided for only the second time ever that I would not pay a tip. The waitress proceeded to take the cash away and shortly returned to say I had not paid the bill in full. I said I had but opted not to pay the optional tip. She said “You could have said before I ran up the bill, why did you not want to pay?”, where I proceeded to explain why and she retorted “what do you expect when you pay prices like this!?”. Our bill came to just over £50. Speaking to a work colleague the next day she said she had eaten there recently had been given fish which she described and been fried at least twice before being served.
