Do you remember 'Charlie's'?
I arrived in Brighton in 1980 to set up a Roller Skate Shop. My business partner helped her mother set up a restaurant called Charlie’s in Manchester Street. This was previously a cafe for the Bus Station which used to be opposite.
This must have been a bustling area when the bus station was used regularly by visitors to the town. Charlie’s had lovely old wooden boxes to hold heavy cutlery. There was also an original counter with a shiny, old fashioned water boiler.
Does anyone remember the bus station and Charlie’s in their hey day?
