Being on the seafront you would think it would be much better. Random coloured walls( lime green, yellow, blue and white) , crackly music, filthy toilets and grubby everything. With a lick of neutral light paint and a bloody good clean it would change the place completely.

Ok the pubs a little dated, but if you want a few drinks in friendly surroundings like we did yesterday, and maybe sing a few songs on karaoke then its ok. We went in Sunday afternoon of May bank holiday and enjoyed it so much, will defo be back.
