Always buy doughnuts from here when visiting Cleethorpes. They are nice and well cooked. £1.50 for 5.

The whole place is unbelievable, it is full of trashy shops, chippies and teaming with people smoking and swearing. I was shocked that this is an award winning beach, the sand may be clean but the water... More
