A lovely sun trap to have a coffee and a jacket potato, watching people pass by. Music playing either on the stage or resident "busker" playing his guitar. Very seaside atmosphere.

We usually go to the bandstand on Sunday afternoons. It's a lovely place to sit and listen to the music and have a couple of beers from the little bar there and a snack from the excellent Mackari's. Great place to people watch too.

Sometimes they have stalls selling items, some times music live. It's nice to have a stop and drink and maybe a bit to eat.

Hi, we only stopped for lunch there, maybe if you put central bandstand into a search engine you would get your answer.
