After a spin in the arcade we decided to have a portion of chips each and they were fresh and yummy. After eating our chips we went to the extensive ice cream bar and ate ice cream by the sea. We'd definitely go again when...More

Decided to have a traditional fish and chip supper. Fish was ok but more batter than actual fish. Chips were thick cut and soon went mushy and became indigestible. Won't be back.

We always take lots of 2ps for our children to use as they must love those machines! Also have tickets that are worth a penny each and can be redeemed in the adjacent gift shop. Worth a rainy day visit especially with children.
