Free, but now really only an amusement arcade over the sea. Do visit and play the arcade, even if only to fund the pier restoration.

Small clean amusement arcade on the pier. Was almost entirely destroyed not so long ago so good to see it back in action. Another place to ridiculously chase those little blooming tickets.

Nice family run pier. They have been through a lot loosing so much in storms but seem to have turned things around. More work needed and not the best example of a pier. Good luck to them.

One thinks that the owners of this place should fork out and few pounds as from the outside it looks like a shambles. Inside very few modern games. Plus only half of the pier is open, one would think that the owners have little interest in the business. Its a shame as the rest of the seafront is outstanding, this... More

Although the pier has seen better days, it still gives the kids some good fun without costing a lot. Would be good to see the pier fully open and back to its original state.

Such a shame as it holds fun memories for me as a kid; but now, compounded by the 2014 storms it's looking very sorry for itself. Disappointed to read other visitors reviews. As a local we pop in every so often. It wouldn't hurt if the owner(s) were to grab a paint brush even in a small attempt to show... More

My husband and i wanted to walk on the pier. First you had to go through the noisy arcade, brilliant for young families to play arcade games or pop money into various slot machines. Once you got outside was quite disappointing only walked a quarter way and it was cordoned off, definitely needs some TLC

A modest sized arcade with a good selection of traditional games - penny in the slot, bash the monster, air hockey, shoot the crazy professor. Most of the games dish out tickets depending on how well you have done which are then exchanged for gifts of differing value. Was interested to read that the arcade was all but destroyed in... More
