    Spring/Summer 2020

     

    40th Anniversary
    This year the Hotel is celebrating it’s 40th birthday; The Regent Hotel has been owned and run by the Hewitt Family since January 1980 – making it one of the longest-running family business in the Lake District.
    40 years on, The Regent Hotel is an established (and still family-run) hotel, with 35 beautiful bedrooms, Table 22 Restaurant and The Deck – our outside bar overlooking Lake Windermere. In 2019 we won the Cumbria Tourism Small Hotel of the Year award – which was certainly a highlight of the past 40 years.

    Spring Offer
    Spring is our favourite time of year – and to celebrate we have a special spring offer:
    Join us for a two-night spring break for just £223 per couple in February and £235 per couple in March, including dinner on the first night and a bottle of wine in your room!
    You can find more information here.

    Sunday Lunch
    Look out for our brand-new Sunday Lunch menu coming soon – a perfect way to finish off a morning stroll around Waterhead or a trip on the boats, and perfect for Mother’s Day on 22nd March!

    Easter
    April 2020 marks 250 years since the birth of William Wordsworth – discover far more than just ‘a host of golden daffodils’ with exhibitions at Rydal Mount, Dove Cottage and Allen Bank, plus events all over Cumbria.


    This year Easter is 10th-13th April – don’t delay & book your stay before you miss out! There is plenty going on in the Lakes around Easter-time, and with daffodils galore, it’s a perfect place to channel your inner-Wordsworth and celebrate the long weekend.

    May Bank Holiday
    May Bank holiday is Friday 8th May this year – to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of VE Day. The occasion will remember the contribution of British, Commonwealth and Allied armed forces personnel; those who contributed to the war effort and safeguarded the Home Front. As well as marking the Allies’ victory in 1945, the bank holiday will serve as an opportunity to pay tribute to those who have served and continue to serve in the UK Armed Forces and their families.

  • Our lovely restaurant Table 22’s new, seasonal spring menu launches today and we’re very excited! Our team of creative chefs have been working hard to conjure up a fantastic selection of exciting, memorable and most importantly delicious dishes for our resident and non resident guests to enjoy.

    We have introduced new plates, refreshed some, and if you are a regular...don’t worry we’ve made sure the favourites have been kept!

    We will start with what’s new, and well, a must try. New to the mains is the pan-cooked sea bass, served with asparagus, new potatoes, herb & citrus butter. This dish is utterly delicious, refreshing and healthy.

    If you’re looking for something a little heavier and not-so-healthy treat yourself to our new mustard glazed ham burger, served with twice-cooked chips, fried egg, piccalilli, and mustard mayonnaise. This dish is sure to satisfy, and if you’re feeling extra fancy you can upgrade to sweet potato fries. Yum!

    With our new menu we thought it was important to introduce more vegetarian and vegan options, and to ensure our fish dishes are sustainably sourced.

    We have added a new mouth-watering vegan burger. The pulled BBQ “Oumph” burger which is vegan friendly comes with a toasted vegan roll, vegan aioli and tasty skinny fries. Also new, for vegetarians is the fantastic Mediterranean vegetable gnocchi with pan-fried Mediterranean vegetables and beetroot pesto.

    We are proud to now offer sustainable fish. What was previously beer-battered Haddock and chips is now beer-battered sustainable fish. Please ask your server for the fresh catch of the day! It will be served with twice-cooked chips, mushy peas, and tartar sauce.

    For those of you who are regulars, you will be pleased to know that we have kept our favourite, classic dishes. The ever popular red wine braised blade of beef served with horseradish mash, greens and red wine jus, and our classic vegetarian twice-baked three-cheese soufflé, served with new potatoes a dressed walnut and pear salad remain available to order.

    Our new menu is varied and designed to suit a variety of palate’s. Please do have a peak at the full menu here: https://bit.ly/2Ihe9DK

    Our menu is served daily 6-9pm, if you have any special dietary requirements or food allergies please don’t hesitate to tell a member of our friendly team, who will be happy to help and do their best to accommodate your needs.

  • In recent weeks we have been blessed with stunning sunny weather, spring has certainly come early this year and it has got us excited about the season ahead! Spring is a great time to visit the Lake District and here’s why...

    Peace and Quiet

    In spring you get the best of both worlds, promising weather and peace and quiet. Peak season in summer is very busy with tourists, great for many but it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. Come for a break mid week in March and you can enjoy quiet footpaths and some sunny days.

    Work off Winter

    We all do it...eat and drink more than we planned over Christmas and New Year. The dark cold nights of January and February make getting back into fitness a challenge! The longer days and warmer temperatures mean it isn’t so hard in March. Here in the Lake District we have so many fabulous walking trails which are great for jogging.

    Bluebells and Daffodils

    You know that spring has arrived when the daffodils and bluebells have sprung. Against the backdrop of the fells and rolling green fields the spring flowers look utterly beautiful. A spectacle everyone should enjoy during a trip to the Lake District.

    Views

    In March most of the trees are still bare, but this brings its own beauty, many of the spectacular views are hidden by green trees in summer. In spring you can see the Lake District from a new, magical perspective.
