ROB Camra left this review about The Velvet Coaster (JD Wetherspoon)

Unusual JDW with two floors and a central lift plus an outside patio and a first floor terrace. Neither of these were much use to us in the heavy rain that was falling at the time. There's some kind of giant on display in the downstairs area, no idea what that's about. A decent crowd in on our Sunday, early afternoon visit, with lots of coffee being sold to tourists avoiding the rain. A good selection of ales on the bar and good, attentive staff. A bit more expensive than a standard JDW, probably because of the tourist market. I didn't mind this place at all and would happily call in again.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Velvet Coaster (JD Wetherspoon)

Looks like a new-build 'spoons but apparently a converted amusement arcade, located between the Pleasure Beach and South Pier. Two bars, with the main one at ground-floor level and a smaller one (with a seasonal terrace) up a flight of steps and plenty of patio tables out front Perhaps most notable for the tubular hanging light features and the two wood-fired decorative heaters in the cavernous area by the main entrance. Reasonable selection of real ales from the various handpumps on the two counters, and unusually all the guest beers seemed to be about 5.0% (including the Bank Top Palomino Rising, £2.29).

Large Spoons in a prominent position near the pleasure beach. Absolutely heaving on my visit - We had planned to grab some food but we struggled to find a seat so I had a pint and gave up. There looked a decent choice of beers but it was hard to tell! It felt like drinking in a modern shopping centre with the glass lift in constant use - mainly by kids.
