The bowling is a great deal, especially if you do the £3 deal before 12:00pm However the arcade games are just impossible to win.... the claws dont grab, and its just not fun like other seaside amusements. Have fun bowling and skip the arcade!

There is a big bowling alley but not busy in the afternoon. Fish and chips which didn't smell good. Rifle range that I did have a go at and did well. Slot machines we both had fun with.

this pavilion has a better feel to it than the pier and the bowling is so much better run than across the road and they dont have silly plastic security guards in the kids faces
