“Needs investment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2014

What a shame that this lovely pier is looking tired and rundown, amusement arcade is grubby and has a lot of shady looking characters! Maybe this pier would have better days if perhaps the council invested in it and made it more inviting with some nice clean tea rooms and eateries that are in the 20th Century

“tired and dated”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2014

Needs make over, so much potential but badly needs cash injection, made me feel really sad, as certainly not making the best of a once beautiful attraction

“Authentic Pier”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2013

Love the Pier as its quaint and old fashioned but well kept. Donuts from the hut are lovely. Enjoy the indoor arcade and amusement where we have won on the slot machines a few times. Nice to pass half an hour or so again in a relaxed mood.Little boats, bikes and rods are available for hire, the little cabin shops serve sweets, refreshments and sea food.
