The Regency – sunset and oysters – what a wonderful world!

1-DSC03415I love this restaurant. The Regency first opened in 1930, and is right opposite the West Pier. Looking at that deserted frame it is difficult to believe how wonderful the West Pier used to be. As faithful followers know,  we performed on it with our marionettes, in the feature film ‘Oh What a Lovely War’ in the sixties. Many years later I watched it burn, not once but twice before most of it fell into the sea.

But today I’m happy to pretend to be Mrs Coutts (see right) and watch the sunset, eating oysters. Of course, you could have their amazing fish soup, fish and chips and for a special occasion, a seafood platter. The staff are so friendly and attentive whatever you order and I can always find an excuse for another visit.

Oh! and the link to my poem about the destruction of that dear old pier.
