I didn't see anything worthy of a second visit. Chips and an amusement arcade. Granted it's under repair, but as a fun destination, in my opinion, it has a long way to go.

We all had a cooked breakfast - it was average, overcooked & not the best quality of ingredients. Service is lacking, it’s overpriced & is tired. Won’t be returning sadly.

Although the Pier is under renovation it is still an interesting viewing point and there are some arcade games close by. When complete the access will be great and the RNLI Boat House is a fantastic place to see.

The Pier is closed for a while but everything else is open for business. I'm sorry I can't help as I've not seen anyone with a dog whilst I've been there. sorry.

The pier is closed and you cannot get to it. The only access is to the life boat station.
