Review of The Regent Bar

This colorful pub with flowers baskets outside caught our eye after a busy day of walking around the city. Inside there were comfortable chairs and cool decor, lots of beers on tap. Very relaxed and friendly LGBT bar.

Looks a bit room down from outside, but the food and staff were great. There were 4 of us and a dog, we were made to feel very welcome, 1 is a vegan, 1 a veggie the food variety was great and the quality was second to none

Yes it's a gay bar, but that didn't both us
Give it a go

Walking back to my hotel, and opting not to step inside some rough looking pubs along Easter Road, I decided to give this one a try. It looks so much more inviting from the outside than than most others in the area.
I discovered inside a clean and tidy bar, a good range of beers and a friendly atmosphere. It has to be the most pleasant watering hole between the city centre and the Hibernian football ground. It’s also a gay pub, but so what?

We called in for some beers and although a bit pricey at £4.30 a pint, was a good atmosphere and service was prompt. Lots of people eating and many bar snacks for £2.00 such as scotch pies and pasties.
