Worth The Extra Drive
My husband and I live in Warwickshire, and prefer to drive the extra miles to get to a decent bingo club. We have been members for a good few years. We think the club is worth the extra miles. We do have Gala clubs nearer but, they are dirty and dismal. We won't stop coming it is GREAT!

This club is brilliant! I have been attending ever since it first opened. I just wish they had a web site telling you what's on and when.

Friendly And Helpful
Staff always friendly and helpful. Much better since no-smoking introduced. Good food served at very reasonable prices.

What Happened To The Prizes?
We like the banter we have with the staff, however as much as we like the club and have good nights there, we dont like it when we arrive to find the house prizes have changed due to warm weather. All weekend prices should remain the same. If prices are dropped, why is the book price not dropped too? Bring back Tuesday nights! Ten pound all in, £1000 second half houses. It's a good incentive to bring back your regular customers, try it for a month. It was very popular.

Changes For The Worst
Have been a member from the start. Unfortunately since manager Julian left there has been a steady decline.The new manager (if he exists) never shows himself to the paying customers. Saturday night cabaret has all but been abandoned except for the very tacky ladies night with male strippers. This attracts non regulars that drink a lot and their noise continually interupts the Bingo sessions. Food is of average quality and over-priced. Seats are thread bare and far from clean. On a positive note, the Sunday Carvery is well cooked and good value.If only this could be the norm for the rest of the week.

Me and my work colleague and her boyfriend went on the 20/12/08. Their entertainment was male stripers? Why can't they have a group or something and not that, ok.

Love The Beacon
I have been coming to Beacon Bingo for years, but have seen numbers decline since the smoking ban. I think the club has made a massive effort to attend to peoples needs, eg. pleasent smoking area for those that can't go without a ciggie, very nice free gifts. If people aren't going to support the Beacon then obviously the prize money is going to go down! And where else can you get a free 3 course lunch?
They have tried to keep up standards with numbers declining and are doing a very good job. The only thing I don't like is those PHDs which I think give people an unfair advantage when others are playing books. They would send me to sleep if all I had to do was poke the screen with a pen. All in all I love the Beacon and long may it reign.

I agree about PHDs being a pain. Last time I went 3 people on next table were using one and taking it in turns. They were so noisy, with no consideration for other people. I have just returned after a 3 year break from bingo, now I am reminded why I stopped going. I think PHDs should be used only in B2 room, and let us ludites enjoy the games in peace.

PHDs Are A Pain
As a member of the Beacon I have been attending bingo nights with my daughter Lisa. Not having a lot of money to spare, we thought we would enjoy playing bingo. At first it was ok but then we realised it was only those with money to use the PHDs that were winning more often. This is what is driving us away, it's a shame as we both love bingo. I am led to believe there are lots more people feeling this way. Surely going back to the good old books would fill the bingo hall.

Good Club, Shame About The PHDs
I just want to say that I am relatively new to bingo, and I am very impressed with the club that I go to on a weekly basis, but I must agree with other comments that have been posted about PHD's. Like other people I have noticed in the last few months that it is always the same old faces using PHD's that are claiming the prizes. Very rarely do you hear of a book number being called. Bring back the good old fashioned way of marking them off on your ticket. I have tried a PHD and found it to be very boring.
Rated 4/5 by D. Beasley (November 2010)
Bingo is a game of chance, basically a night out, if you win it's a bonus. I have played PHD and never won on them but I hardly win on books either. Oh well, I hope 2011 will be luckier for me. Fab club!

Very nice and friendly staff and they make you very welcome. I want to find a Beacon Bingo Hall in Bristol but not sure if there is one here in Bristol.
