walkers can now enjoy a 'short' on Britain's shortest pier!
Visitors to Burnham-On-Sea's Pavilion can now enjoy a 'short'
on Britain's shortest pier for the first time!
Following the approval of its new alcohol licence, the pier has
this week put on sale a selection of wines, beers and spirits
at its refreshments kiosk.
Louise Parkin, pictured, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "There's
already been a lot of interest from passers-by for our 'Pimms
on the pier' and we are talking to several breweries about offering
Somerset beers and ciders as well."
She added: "We have often been asked by customers why we
haven't sold drinks to accompany our hot food so this season we
are giving it a go."
"We're don't intend to compete with the pubs, but are aiming
at holidaymakers and seafront visitors who want to enjoy a quick
drink while enjoying the sea air or eating their fish and chips."
