The Regency Restaurant
The Regency Restaurant is the oldest and one of the most popular family-friendly seafront restaurants in Brighton. Amateur historians may double-take at the restaurant's address, as the venue is situated in a grade-II-listed 19th-Century building which was originally the palatial seaside home of Thomas (founder of Coutts Bank) and Harriet Coutts. Harriet Coutts loved the house as she could sit and eat her favourite dish of king prawns while looking out to the sea and the West Pier.
The delights that await you on The Regency's menu have received much acclaim over the years, being highly recommended by both Rick Stein and Antony Worrall Thompson. Break into the crisp batter of cod and chips, or follow in the footsteps of Lady Harriet Coutts by indulging in the king prawns grilled in garlic. The Regency Restaurant is a family-run establishment which is all about fresh, local and flavoursome food; all whipped together with sharp service and an unmissable view of that famous pier.
