Not been for a while but same old same old no fish no lasagne no chicken breast meals. It’s Sunday here at 5.15 and there’s always an excuse for food today it’s freezer or staff problems. Oh and now they sell Harry Ramsdens well disappointing chips were all of an inch long nothing like the advert. What’s going on 😡new system of buying tickets and 5 mins to go before early’s massive queue much like the bar That’s not working either. Be awhile before next visit unfortunately

Attack of the morbid caller.
Aug 2019 • Family
Fairly eventful night, with a semi toned atmospheric touch about the place.
Long night of bingo, wasn’t helped by the dreaded bar staff over talking the bingo caller During the main book session... They need hanging in the dungeons by their thumbs, head should roll.
During the late session, the heating was above the standard and became very hot and humid... thank god for the menus so I could fan my pits. Also, during the late session we was attacked by morbid Murray the bingo caller, with the heat and his monotone voice I was nearly asleep and nearly missed my call. Please keep him on the front desk as he’s not at the desired standard to call numbers.

Ps up the prize money

Much love

Staying at the local lodge I decided to try a game of bingo here.

Staff on book sales was welcoming and friendly and assisted me on purchasing my book's.

The establishment is a little dated to those back home in the Midlands. However, fun afternoon had although I only won a fiver.

Poor customer service
Nov 2017 • Solo
As it was my birthday I decided to try my luck as I was staying at the Lodge nearby.

The lady on book sales was very helpful in sorting out the books for me.

However, I asked for support from Debbie who abruptly told me wait. As this was my first and (last visit here) I was unsure of how things run here.

Personally I think Debbie could do with a little more customer service training. She actually spoilt my birthday.

Will go again

My mum joined as a member, so she played all night for £5 and as I introduced her, I played for £5 too.

Firstly the staff were really welcoming and extremely helpful especially as my mum was a newbie to bingo.

It all seemed really clean and well laid out in the room and plenty of space.

Ordered a burger and drink deal. The burger was very thin and burnt, and not like the pictures. However the chips were really nice although a little cold. It might be an idea to have a microwave there, as your food can sometimes come out when playing bingo and by the time you get to eat it, it's gone cold.

Had a really nice evening. Mecca should really value their team as they were extremely pleasant and helpful. We will come again.

placed food and beverage order at 12.40pm, received 1 of 2 drinks straight but had to wait for tea as the machine was playing up, was told to take a seat and they would bring it over, 1 hr later i received my tea but it was cold.
The food came out missing the side salad which i had to ask for and that another 10 mins, the food was that overcooked it was inedible, i was a party of two but my companions food didnt come out until another 15 mins later and it was only a pudding she ordered, nice soft chocolate sponge with orange trickle in the middle with custard, omg never tasted anything so bad in my life, the sponge was dry and hard in places and as for the middle should have a runny middle of orange, it was not there just a tough hard pudding all round.
I cannot believe how down hill this place has become, been going years and it has never been this bad before.
Last week when i went i had some food then which comprised of a bowl of chips and cheese with beans as its the safest option for me as having an allergy to onions. got half way down my bowl of chips and there was several onions mixed in with the chips, this could of had serious consequences as it was i noticed before eating too many and just ended up with feeling sick and slight stomach ache.
I am gutted about this place as it used to be great, with great food, great service and great atmosphere, Not anymore, the best thing about this place is Jackie the caller, lovely helpful woman and does her job great.

Don't plan on getting a meal at a decent time
Feb 2017 • Solo
I've just waited almost 2 hours for pulled pork in a bun with chips! Chips had been waiting around for a while, this I know as I used to work in fast food kitchens and a bingo hall kitchen, I didn't receive everything that came with the meal (coleslaw) if I did ever come back here to play bingo which is standard I would probably stock up on bar crisps before waiting for a main meal, thank god I didn't go for something complicated! On the upside there was a lovely lady on the electronics desk who helped me get set up, so thumbs up for her!

bingo disaster
Oct 2016 • Friends
Meeting a friend and decided to come to bingo, I rang prior to arriving and was told I didn't need to book or bring anything, just turn up anytime and play! Got to Mecca after driving for around 30 minutes, and was told we needed ID before we could join and play! was also told we were a bit late, was not told this on the phone! so a nice evening with a friend turned into nothing as we didn't even get past reception! not clear for new comers, would not recommend!!

It's an enjoyable night out but the poor level of service from the bar area (through no fault of the single team member serving) is shocking. I stood in the queue for about 25 minutes waiting to order food and a drink with only one serving (missed my 2 early games due to this!) The food is then bound to come as you are playing bingo and takes a while to be served even though most dishes are microwaved. It always frustrates me on every visit why this is and why they never put more staff on as every single customer moaned in the queue about speed of service.
The manager is a bit unprofessional as I've heard him a couple of times speak down to staff and belittle them in front of customers which I find is very unprofessional and unfair on the young workers.
