“tired and dated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

Needs make over, so much potential but badly needs cash injection, made me feel really sad, as certainly not making the best of a once beautiful attraction

“Authentic Pier”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

Love the Pier as its quaint and old fashioned but well kept. Donuts from the hut are lovely. Enjoy the indoor arcade and amusement where we have won on the slot machines a few times. Nice to pass half an hour or so again in a relaxed mood.Little boats, bikes and rods are available for hire, the little cabin shops serve sweets, refreshments and sea food.

“Great fun for everyone.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Excellent for spending a few pennies with a variety of entertainment machines. My son loves to the play 2p machines and try to win small items and tokens as well as money itself !

Staff are friendly and at the back of the pier in the ouside area is a great mini golf course, bouncy castle and mega giant slide.

Views are also great across to Torquay and Brixham.
