“The way things were”
Reviewed 28 August 2014 via mobile

Not much too do in brid on a rainy afternoon so came across this place wandering round looking for something to do. What a find. Pity it's not larger. You buy old pennies to feed the original machines to win chocolate bars, polo's, etc. Our 12 year loved it. Much better than the noisey modern arcades

“A real walk down memory lane”
Reviewed 25 August 2014 via mobile

Keep going here with my 2 children. My hubby, mum and myself love it. The children especially love it as not only do you pay for the amusements with old pennies but the games are old and different to electronic games and slots which are everywhere.

My eldest son is Autistic and loves all the old games and watching how they work. The man who works there is really really friendly and always happy to answer any questions he may have.

If you get the chance go, it's excellent.

“Brought back memories of childhood holidays”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 via mobile

All the old arcade games are here . Free entry £1 buys ten old pennies for you to stroll down memory lane. You can even win chocolate bars and polos or just play on some games for the fun of it watched over by the laughing sailor

“BRILLIANT ”
Reviewed 22 August 2014 via mobile

Lovely little place to visit and I've gotta say its the simple things in life that please. The owner of the premises was very helpful and friendly and very knowledgeable in the history of the machines in the collection. All in all I'd definately recommend a visit there if you're in the area. Well done Old Penny Memories.
