A friend and I stumbled across this bar while looking for somewhere to try whilst meeting in Balham, off the main bustle of the high street, the pub was still quite busy for a Sunday night....probably due to a quiz night going on in the other room. 

We were pleasantly surprised by our food options, my friend opting for a roast (big enough to feed two people) whilst I opted for a mushroom gnocchi...amazing! The staff member who served us was very attentive and let us sit down rather than ordering at the bar, he was quick to come around and ask if everything was fine and if he could get us anything else.

Having been a local to South London for the past three years, I was surprised I hadn't come into the Regent sooner. After our lovely evening in there with good food and wine, I'll definitely be going back again sooner rather than later! 

Definitely a nice pub to check out if you're in the area! 


Time will tell if the recent re-vamp of this popular sport-gastro-cocktail bar was worth it. A week into the newly renovated bar, it is proving as popular as ever. It is definitely a great venue to try for the upcoming Rugby World Cup - having 5 large projector screens!

Decent spirit list, not too many ales on tap and priced right for the area.

Major food envy when I ate there- I had the mushroom gnocchi, oozing cheesy goodness whilst staring at my partners venison and chorizo burger!

Service is great !


Went for a Sunday roast and the meat was fatty, Yorkshire pud was rock hard - very disappointing
