What a disappointment piers on the Devon coast are very few and far between Very short it was made even shorter by the fact that you can only travel down as far as the amusement arcade A missed opportunity by the owners

Utterly discussed with the owner. I went in there today started to change up some cash in the change machine and was waiting on my wife and grandchild to come in, told my wife if she was struggling with our grandchild id go back out meet her then come back in. I had a hand full of £10 notes fully intending on letting my grandchild throw £100 away in the amusements for the first time and seeing the joy in her face as she blew the money. I put one £10 note in the change machine and the owner walked up and told me after putting the first note in that I cant put any more in. And that I have to go to the bank even though they were closed at this time. He told me that it costs him to get his change in the machines. So £10 x £1 coins to spend a few hours with my grandchild because he obviously thought that I'd come and take his precious change for something else, i have no idea what though? Maybe at the casino? Bloody ridiculous! Ok so as a self employed tradesman I had stopped at a quote before picking up my wife and grandchild so I was wearing my work trousers. Maybe its not appropriate clothing to satisfy the owner Utterly ridiculous! His assumptions about my intentions and blatant rude attitude just saw him lose £100 in business minus his over heads smart move? I ended up going to paignton instead and you know what the pound coins from that £10 note well obviously they came with me. So £100 down in business and 10 of his precious £1 coins gone. I wouldn't support a business at this time, help an owner profit who was a complete judgemental idiot and treats his potential customers like that! Dont judge a book by its cover you saw a young tradesman rinsing your change jar, when in fact there was a tradesman out to spend the rest of the day with his grandchild, to see her eye light up by throwing money into your pocket. I dont take full days off not even weekends including Sundays. But I know for a fact as a local self employed tradesman, every time I do get to cram a few hours in here and there with the family to go out, we will not be visiting your business or supporting it. You just messed up you should of thought about the life time customer value to your business not someone taking your change for the boozer. UTTERLY DISGUSTING!!!!

The only part of the pier that was open was the amusement arcade. We would have liked to have walked down to the end, but it was closed. No idea why as plenty of open space. We don't like arcades so we left.

There are signs to the pier but unfortunately the main pier was closed which was so disappointing. At the entrance is a large Amusement arcade which is worth a visit.

We were extremely disapointed with this unusual sevice due to the fact that we were denied entrance to this leisure. It was a very abrupt ending to the amout of profit they would of accquired from us. We are Young adults and are very responisble and were devastated to find we were refused access before we could enjoy the leisure of this childhood wonder
