Stopped off for a little look and ended up staying for a while - was great fun! Took me back to my childhood! Had a great time in the arcade - great to see so many 2p machines! Fab for young families

Have been to the pier several times. The arcade has a wide choice of arcade games and is always spotlessly clean.

What a lovely shoreline, the pier was fun...typical attractions, arcade, snack stalls etc. The eco-park nearby is absolutely fantastic and well worth a cost if you have little ones! We also had really good food in a nearby upstairs restaurant, who's name unfortunately escapes me. A well maintained peer with a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. We'd love to return.

The amusement I find is a rip off the staff go round every now and then opening the machines and putting things back so instead of letting people have a chance of a win they pushed the things back meaning more money has to go in before any wins I never seen this in other amusements, I refuse to play...

Overpriced machines especially the claw grab style ones. Says on the machine it's a luck and percentage chance of winning. After nearly £20 in these machines nearly every time picking up a toy only to see it drop straight out of grip at the top. Machines rigged proper rip off.

Rude staff, over priced games, rigged machines , rubbish prizes and most upsetting you can't even walk to the end any more. Money grabbing has ruined the pier 😟👎🏻
