The Dolphin: Pleasant & Atmospheric Pub with good food.
The Dolphin is a pleasant and charming pub in the little Chelsea area of Eastbourne near the Town Centre and Town Hall. The place is just full of character and has a comfy feeling with nice leather sofas to snuggle down in with your drink or a rustic restaurant area at the back to enjoy some of the great food they serve here. The burgers are always top class and are hand made. Double burgers are huge and only recommended or extremely hungry (or greedy!) people. The Chilli jam burger is my favourite but I've never had a bad meal here. You also won't leave hungry as portion sizes are always good.
They also have a number of local beers/ales and some good wines.
The clientale tend to be well behaved and nice people. I've never seen any trouble here.
Dress Code: Wear anything you like. Very laid back.
The Counting House Pub: Great little gig venue
Lovely pub in Eastbourne old town, The Counting House - built in the 17th century and still retains lots of old features, oak beams, tiny doorways and inglenooks... and a fabulous, minute, interior balcony which these days is used as a stage for their acoustic nights.
We were there to see David Ford, a local guy who was performing a free gig. It was, as always, absolutely brilliant. Call ahead to find out who is playing on Thursday nights
Dress Code: Smart-casual.

Congress Theatre: See the Counterfeit Stones
The C'Stones perform here once a year - if you are visiting Eastbourne when they are here then you really should book tickets (14.50GBP) - same phone and website as above! They are sooooo entertaining, playing all the Stones' hits from the 60's onwards - with some spoof video footage between costume changes.... great fun!!!
Dress Code: Anything rock and roll!
The Congress Theatre: Eastbourne Theatres
I have been here to see several shows - from Status Quo to the Counterfeit Stones. The building is a 60's carbuncle but they do put on some good performances by a variety of artistes.
There is a good bar service but it gets VERY busy so order your interval drinks BEFORE the show starts. The queues are horrendous otherwise and you won't have time to drink up before the start of the second half!
Have a look at the website for more info - you get a panoramic view of the inside of the auditorium!
There is excellent wheelchair access inside this theatre, with plenty of space and sloping floors etc... so although I am not too fond of the exterior design, a lot of thought has gone into the interior.
Dress Code: Nothing too casual or shabby.
The Buccaneer: Where the *Stars* Hang Out After the Show
This pub is situated just between the Congress Theater and The Winter Garden. It is very popular and gets very busy - especially after a performance. If you want the chance to spot an actor dahling, then drop in here for a swift half at the end of the show and you might see someone who's almost famous.
Dress Code: Quite nice.
