This is an outside gem. Not much seating inside but the sandwiches were amazing but breakfast was even better full English costs were reasonable and staff attentive only downside but fully understandable you have to pay before you get anything. It was superb. So lovely.

The Buccaneer sits by the sea and that's the best attraction of the place. It's the perfect place to just get a seat out in the sun, look out at the sea, and people-watch, or read a book. Although the view was what attracted my partner and I, we ended up ordering some food as well as drinks, which turned... More

My friend and I had a lovely time at the Buccaneer by the beach! Food is only slightly pricey but the view/location is definitely worth it. We both had a baguette and salad - it was very filling for lunch. I would recommend the crayfish baguette!

It's ok here. Nothing special and entertaining out of brown bread... Nice to let the kids play on the beach whilst we had a pint and some seafood.

Great place to have a drink and light lunch after a stroll at thr beach on a Saturday morning! Sea view is beautiful, fish and chips very tasty! Really enjoyed the sun and Aperil Spritz for couple of hours! And the seagulls songs brought a nice romance to the occasion.

We were only in Brighton for 3 days, but had breakfast here twice and sundowner drinks once. It's right on the beach, perfect for watching the sun go down with a bottle of prosecco and some nibbles! Breakfast was excellent value and very tasty. The wait staff are great - very friendly and efficient. Perfect for people like us who... More
