    [does anyone know anything about the episode series 3.
    that they go on holiday
    what is the name of that restaurant where she is polishing the crockery.
    is that quality seafood or something else I’m looking for the address of it
    if anyone can help please.]

    • As far as I can tell, the exterior shots in that sequence are on Regent Street, Leamington Spa. I believe the “Quality Seafood” window is at 49 Regent Street, and is a fishmonger’s shop called Regency Fish. Next door at 47 Regent Street is where the travel agent was in the show – now a Nail Salon. But the interior shots of the restaurant will be somewhere else, as the frontage of the fish shop is not wide enough to be a restaurant! Might possibly be two doors down at 53 Regent Street, which is now the “Carisma Tapas & Wine Bar”. Not certain, but entirely possible.

      • Thanks Eddy

        I believe the restaurant used for the inside shots was the Rocking Horse Cafe in Kenilworth

  3. So interesting to see locations for Keeping up appearances. From 1941 – 1963 l lived at Binley woods. Woodlands rd and Heather rd and a few others were all rural lanes, surrounded by woodland and bomb craters from the last war. There were a few bungalows and houses and a resident gypsy caravan site. During my childhood the roads and pavements were built .l lived at 3 Woodlands rd. and the garden stretched to Heather rd. During the late 50s the land was sold and 4 houses were built, also the woodland at the back where a bungalow was put on Heather rd. There were 2 shops on Rugby rd. There is now a school in the area, where we once played in woodland.
    I returned to the area last year as l and family were staying at Coombe Abbey for my birthday. My old house was unrecognisable with extensions and forecourt.
    Thank you for the memories of a carefree childhood.

    • My mum (Monica 87) remembers my dad’s family living in 2 caravans nearby. My dad Victor Milne lived with his parents in one, and his sister Kath Todd in the other. Kath had her baby Ann (who is now in her 70s) while there. They were all originally planning to emigrate to Canada, but fortunately for Vics descendants (myself & 2 sisters in our 50s), that never happened. Mum watching an episode of Keeping Up Appearances last night prompted this Google search and hence found this post.
      How lovely thankyou 🙂

  5. Just love British sitcoms. I live in the U.S. I started watching Are You Being served after
    returning from Desert Storm. I’m presently watching Poirot on Brit Box. I think my
    accent is changing from all the British shows I watch.
