Devonshire Park Pub Reopens with New Stage Name

20 June 2018

The newly named Stage Door pub opened for business on Monday with a brand new look, following refurbishment works to the Devonshire Park venue.


The popular theatre pub on the old Buccaneer site, now run by Devonshire Park Catering, is reopening with 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.

Eastbourne Borough Council Lead Cabinet Member for Tourism and Enterprise, Cllr Margaret Bannister said “The Devonshire Park setting makes this a perfect place to relax, socialise and sample new tastes. The new look and new menus will really enhance the quality experience for the thousands of delegates, theatre goers and tennis fans who visit the site throughout the year, as well as providing a superb dining venue for families and craft ale connoisseurs.”

The Compton Street pub which overlooks Devonshire Park has been refurbished as part of the ongoing redevelopment works to the Devonshire Quarter, putting Eastbourne on the map as a top cultural, sporting and conference destination. The pub will provide a high quality food and drink experience in a first class setting for theatre, conference and tennis visitors, as well as families visiting the seafront.

Over the last few months, the pub has seen extensive refurbishment to the roof, toilets, paintwork, rear glazing and skylight lantern, in addition to the previous refurbishment of the wooden flooring, with further works to the front façade following later in summer.

The refreshed interiors include a relaxing new lounge area with stylish sofas and vintage theatre lamps offering an ace view of Devonshire Park, while the main bar offers formal dining, with some great offers for theatre ticketholders.

With an exclusive wine list and gin menu, visitors can also look forward to a bespoke events programme including wine tasting, cheese and port evenings.

The Stage Door is now open daily from 12 noon (closes 11pm Monday to Friday, 11.30pm Saturdays and 10.30pm Sundays), with plans to open early and offer a breakfast menu later in the year.
