Lovely little pier, went to the coffee shop and staff were very friendly, it was sunny so we sat outside, would recommend a gluten free selection. There was a brass band playing on the front of the pier which made it very authentic.

Despite being quite a blustery day we sat on one of the tables outside the café on the pier to drink our tea. It's a lovely spot to watch the waves rolling in. They also serve a selection of hot snacks and cakes.
