“Nice find”
Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

We had been staying at a local b&b and passed this a couple of times. I noticed that it seemed very popular, so we decided to pop in on our way home. We picked up some good bargains. My boyfriend bought a pair of Lacoste Trainers & when he got to the till a extra 25% was taken off. We got some other stuff but didn't stay for to long due to the weather. Worth a visit.

“breakfast heaven”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

The freeport does not have much to recommend it except the wonderfull Williams Farm Kitchen.
The food was freshly prepared from local produce and absolutely delicious. If you are in the area I would advise you to give it a whirl. The shop sell all the produce and once you have eaten the breakfast you will buy all the components to make it yourself. A great experience.

“"A Ghetto Of A Port"”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

We visited in October 2012, the last visit was maybe 2 years previous and what a shock,more empty shops than occupied i think it was the cafes that were only making money.Ithink its only a matter of tme before the shutters go up on all of the shops,a pity this as to happen because it was always a good place to shop.They should ask Mary Queen of Shops to come up with a rescue plan,what a shame!

“If it's shops you want”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

If it is shops you want try Hornsea Freeport. Lots of fashion outlets, shoe stores plus many more. Something for everyone. A visit to the cafe is a must! Their scones with cream and jam are sooo naughty - but oh so nice! - and just what is needed to revive you so you are able to shop some more.
