Stage Door10 Compton Street
Situated by the theatres and near the seafront, this pub has a large L-shaped bar with some partitioned seating. Old theatre posters decorate the walls and a raised rear area overlooks the Devonshire Park tennis courts. The previous owners, the Mitchells & Butlers chain, sold the pub to Eastbourne Borough Council in 2017 as part of the redelvelopment of the Devonshire Park site. It closed for five months in the first half of 2018 for repairs and refurbishment.
NB: this pub has recently re-pened and has not been fully surveyed by the CAMRA branch yet, so much of the detail is that from before the re-opening. CAMRA is happy to receive updates via the feedback link.
