We were invited to a wedding on the pier, we had use of the land train to take us down the pier, the venue was upstairs which was very nice. After the ceremony we had use of Captain Jack's bar whilst they got the hall ready for afternoon tea. It was all very nicely done.

They have really made a good job when they rebuilt the pier after the fire. Although we didn't visit the tea rooms this time it is lovely. I love having a flutter on the machines!!

We went on the pier for a bit of fun on a rainy Saturday afternoon, not impressed with the £1 entry, I'm sure it puts many people off, I spent many childhood weekends playing on the one arm bandit slots so it was nice to go back for nostalgia reasons and play space invaders too! Good old traditional fun with... More

We we're a party of six OAPS, we found it an interesting way to spend a couple of hours, however the entertainment is aimed at much younger people and is great for children.

Great fun until partner hurt himself on the helter skelter, I did laugh though, it is a huge arcade and there is something for all ages, I wouldn't want to think how much you could spend in a couple of hours with kids though, these places eat money but are good fun.

Had fun, taking us back to being children on the 2p machines. The Pier is really clean and well ran.. a little on the cheap side - but isn't that what it's all about. Very nostalgic with a modern twist. Great way to while away a couple of hours

Thank 77Craig
