Popped along to the game versus Bishop stortford for my first visit and have to say had a great time Clubhouse served a good variety of beers and friendly service with it, able to watch the game with a beer which is great for us football league fans Home support whilst not huge sang from start to finish with a load of different songs, food ordered at half time was a while coming due to it being busier than normal but was again with great service and tasty. We won and played really well and you would not be able to identify who was bottom without a league win since august and who was second,you had a Colchester season ticket holder a Man Utd season ticket holder and a football newbie in our party and you will see us all again

Local football club that embraces families to visit and be part of the experience. As expected the bar prices are cheap and you get to help the Regent survive. The club can be hired as a venue for birthdays, weddings etc and is a fabulous size and they can never do enough to make your day/ night special. The atmosphere is always good no matter the result and they host lots of nights, music and private clubs, slimming world etc...this is an important part of the town and community and should be supported with a visit.

History (from Wikipedia)


During the early days of the club, Brightlingsea played at Bell Green in Bellfield Close, before moving to the Recreation Ground in Regent Road in the 1920s.[4] The club moved to North Road in 1929, having bought the site from Reg Girling for £400.[5] A stand with bench seating and dressing rooms were built, and the local press funded the new press box, which was initially also used as dressing room for the referee and linesmen.[5] The opening match was played on 7 September 1929 against Parkeston Railway, with Brightlingsea winning 4–1.[5] The stand was dismantled in 1977.[5] A lean-to cover was subsequently built next to the clubhouse and benches installed to meet ground grading requirements.[5] Floodlights were erected in 1988 and inaugurated with a match against Colchester United.[5] In 2014 a 107-seat stand was installed after being bought from eBay,[6] with a 150-capacity covered terrace added in 2017.[7]
