“Nice little pier”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

This could turn out to be an expensive place to visit if you have any children with you! It is a nice old pier, but there are lots of arcades, fruit machines and rides etc, there is also a very nice cafe that does lovely cream teas, and a fantastic fresh seafood stall which is a must if you enjoy this sort of food.

“Love coming here”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

Love coming here, my daughter won a lot of prizes this year on the 2p machines and hardly put anything in. I have always found the staff lovely, I can't wait to go back next year and see what new prizes are available.

“Perfect English seaside attraction”
Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

We visited here in June during a very hot and sunny weekend. There was a music concert going on but this didn't affect the atmosphere at all and the music actually added to our enjoyment! The pier itself is very well maintained. There's a lot of negative reviews about the arcades but we all won something by spend no more than £3 each and it whittled away some time. It's very kid centred and you definitely need spare change in your pocket if you are taking kids. There's not many places to just sit and enjoy the view and sea air and the pier would really benefit from this. There's a few really nice gift shops on the pier as well and you're able to get an ice cream or a cuppa. All in all this is what an English seaside should be about.

“A large amusement arcade”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Walked to the end, but had to go through the amusement arcade, presumably to encourage you to spend. A few drinks places, but nothing much else.
It was free, so nice to have a walk out over the sea
