Danny O'Revey left this review about The Buccaneer

Scruffy looking pub with Eastern domes on the roof & near the Winter Gardens.

Inside is one long room that is raised at the rear overlooking what I think is the lawn tennis club? Lots of signed theatre pictures on the walls. Some booth seating near door, the rest is wooden tables & chairs.

The raised area at the rear has a skylight & chandalier.

Sticky table could have done with a clean, but its a nice interior.

4 well kept real ales

Interesting looking pub which was originally built by the Duke of Devonshire as a theatre bar for staff from the Grand Hotel and has a bit of a Brighton Pavilion theme going on architecturally. It’s a short walk from the centre of Eastbourne in the heart of Theatre Land and overlooking the Devonshire Park Tennis courts, so utilising it during Queens was probably not representative of what it’s like normally. Certainly wasn’t lacking in users and atmosphere during my visits (surprising how many other blokes got pulled down for the Tennis and escaped to find solace in here)
One large internal L shaped space but interesting interior décor with many framed theatre posters several being signed by the performers
There were five ales on, and the always on Harvey’s Best and the Buccaneer Ale (which is Arundel Sussex Gold) were complemented by Longman Best Bitter, Kings Best and one from Dark Star.
Difficult to judge what this place would be like to visit without the tennis or theatre crowds in, but I rated it highly.

If you are not keen on 'Harveys' then this pub is for you. A selection of real ales reasonably kept, with friendly bar staff, possibly the only pub in town with a good selection of beers from different breweries.
