We prebooked as there busy.
Service was excellent. We sat on the terrace lots of sun and some shade. The food choice was great especially for gluten free which makes a nice change and was delish. We had a few cocktails that were yummy.
Would recommend to all AA**

The Reg and Suas are always a great place for a great bit of food! It can get a little noisy when sitting outside because the proximity or the quays, but it's an ignorable noise. For and service is always top class!

Generous portions, crispy battered fish, melt-in-the-mouth roast rib of beef, light and tasty creamed potatoes, a fabulous, festive, family feast. Waiting staff were so attentive and friendly. Well done The Reg, highly recommended.

Food was fairly bland, courses came out far too quickly. Very pricey considering the food was very average. Portion sizes across the board weren’t terrible but still on the smaller side of acceptable. Cocktails were decent. Wouldn’t return.

The food was very bland, the calamari was chewy, the korma just tasted of tomatoes sauce, no food was seasoned at all. Would recommend going anywhere else.

Fantastic dining spot, the food was fantastic with generous portions, the staff were friendly and really helpful, the measures in place to assist in social distancing, hand sanitizer and mask wearing were handled really well and gave a great sense of reassurance that we could dine out and support a local business without risking the safety staff/ourselves/other customer

Nice place. Music loud but did turn it down when we asked. Food average. Chicken burger was a bun with 2 small pieces of chicken goujons and 1 leaf of lettuce. When we complained we were told we were the first to complain since they reopened. What an answer. Chicken tikka masala not at all creamy. Tasted more like sweet n sour. Wouldnt go back.

Handed overcooked fish back and Donal O’Brien (general manager) wanted me to pay for it and the replacement meal! He was rude and arrogant with a major chip on his shoulder about something!? He stood less than two feet from us and didn’t wear a face covering like the rest of the staff. I told him that I would never recommend the place and he replied with “I don’t need your recommendations! I was so shocked at the carry on that I thought we were on a hidden camera show. Never again!
