The Stage Door


The popular theatre pub on the old Buccaneer site, now run by Devonshire Park Catering, offers an exclusive range of food and drinks not available anywhere else in town including craft beers, guest gins, homemade specials and family friendly menus.

Featuring a range of local ales from both Harvey’s and Long Man Brewery, drinkers can sample the latest ‘Black Stout’ trend for Guinness fans, enjoy a local gin or try vegan-friendly German craft beers.

A new seasonal food menu also includes home cooked specials, afternoon tea with homemade cakes, and wholesome dishes for vegans and special diets.

Located between the Devonshire Park Theatre and the Winter Garden, The Stage Door is the ideal spot for a tasty meal out or drinks with friends!

Please note that dogs are allowed in the beer garden only.
