What a let down. Half of the machines were broken or not even switched on because they were broken. 2p machines looked boring as hell, there were no prizes or anything in there - which just makes them pointless. We played a couple of games...More

Pretty average amusement arcade when theres nothing much to do on a rainy day, thats about it. Lots of 2p machines which helps make the trip less expensive.

It's a tradition that we fritter a few pennies here one evening on our walk back after supper, & so lovely that it has not been upgraded or modernised, so becomes a treasured family memory

Great for an hours entertainment with the kids. Rides are not to pricey. Arcade games are packed in. Pretty much something for everyone. Bit hot and crowded though in the summer months

This traditional seaside arcade is a nice way to pass an hour or so and there is something for everyone to be entertained. These sort of places are always so noisy though

We have 3 kids all of whom LOVE arcades. Usually we say no to anything more than 10/2p machines due to the high cost (£1 or £2 a go) but this arcade has ride on car rides for 50p. And other things for 30p. Amazing!!...More
