Basically, just an amusement arcade on stilts. Very child orientated. I can only agree with comment made by "alaevie" but rephrased: Cannot recommend a visit unless you have time to waste.

Have been coming to Burnham every summer for the last 20 years and can say that the Pier is back to how it used to be in the 1990s really busy and vibrant. I understand it’s new owners, good luck.

We stopped here for dinner after walking along the beach. Staff were friendly with smiles. Tables and chairs were well looked after and clean. Didnt have to wait too long for the food.

A clean and well presented food area, specifically for people that have purchased food on the pier. Would be happy to return and sample more than just a tasty ice cream!

I've been here many times over the decades and I've always received good food and friendly service. I have reviewed the pier on TripAdvisor previously and said so. I can only speak as I have found.
