A very British thing to do. And the coffee shop is great. There are so many different things to do - cafe, fish and chips, breakfast and donuts. The perfect Sunday!

Didn't go into the pavilion itself but walked along the pier which is very pretty with lovely views. Had fish and chips from a small hut on the pier which were lovely. Freshly cooked and very tasty.

Not a pretty sight. Tacky. Wouldn't recommend. Although cafe was really good- can't remember the name of it. Nice outdoor seats with seaview.
