A KIDDERMINSTER town centre pub is set to launch its very own retro gaming arcade later this month.

Gamers will be able to play their favourite 80s video games at the Bull Ring pub Pennies as part of its new upgrade.

The new family-friendly attraction will be called The Penny Arcade, named after the Roy Orbison song.

An area of the pub will be devoted to the new arcade, which will feature a driving machine, a mothership competition console with over 3300 games, table football, and a grabbing machine and train ride for children.

There will also be regular gaming competitions held at the pub.

The owner of Pennies, Adam Wilcox, said he wants to take guests back in time to their youth and offer entertainment for families eating out at the pub.

He aims to introduce something different to the town after thinking of ways to evolve his business throughout the pandemic.

Mr Wilcox said: "There's nothing like this in the town centre.

"You need some escapism and classic, retro gaming will do that. It's about giving people nostalgia.

"We're going to have regular competitions and different events.

"I think it's going to be really great for people who want to let their hair down and enjoy a good game."
