  • 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.


    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.

  • Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and the need for romantic gesture ideas is at the forefront of lovers minds! So we thought we’d do our best to help...

    The Lake District as a destination is romantic in itself, inspiring many writers and poets over the centuries. Who needs cheesy gifts when you could be soaking up a view from atop one of the many picturesque fells in the Lakes?

    Here at Regent we are in the perfect spot for a truly memorable romantic break. Situated next to Waterhead Bay near Ambleside you only have to walk out our front door to be struck by the stunning natural beauty of the lake and fells beyond.

    Why not take your loved one on a Windermere Lake Cruise from Waterhead Bay? The spectacle of the lake and reflected landscape on the water is a special experience. And, within walking distance of the town centre, the abundance of shops, pubs and bars mean you won’t be short of places to indulge and explore together.

    If you’re planning on staying with us on Valentines night, here at the hotel we will be serving some showstopping Valentines specials as well as our delicious Al La Carte Menu. You can look forward to a variety of creative dishes with meat, fish and vegetarian options. There will even be a Valentine’s sharing dessert for two!

    Book your romantic break today before it’s too late! You can book on our website, or call to chat to one of our friendly team. Happy Valentines!

    New Year, New Rooms!

    Situated at Waterhead Bay on the shores of Lake Windermere, our hotel is in the perfect spot to enjoy the lake, Ambleside town and is in great proximity to the surrounding fells. This is why we are so delighted that the building work for our four new bedrooms is now underway. It means we will be able to offer more accommodation to more guests in our idyllic Lake District location.

    The two ground floor rooms, 35 and 36 will be superior rooms with their own private patio. Guests will be able to enjoy their own outside space breathing in fresh Lake District air during their morning coffee or perhaps in the evening watching the sunset with a nice glass of wine!

    The two first floor rooms will be bay view superior rooms. These rooms will have a bath and shower, a beautiful juliet balcony with views of the lake and Latterbarrow fells beyond. If that wasn’t enough, the vaulted ceiling, adds to the unique luxury feel.

    All the rooms at Regent have their own perks and each offer something unique. Thinking about staying with us in 2019? These new rooms are currently ahead on schedule with work expected to finish in April. Call us for more details and to book.
