About us

Bringing the Past to Life

Retro Leisure Midlands Ltd are specialists in digital jukeboxes, coin-op video arcade and Pinball machine repair and customisation. We’re a small family business based in the heart of Shropshire. Established in 2014 by Stuart Rathbone and was joined my his brother James Rathbone in 2017. Together they provide a comprehensive and friendly repair service for the arcades/pinball and jukebox communities.
Our experienced engineers can diagnose and fix any mechanical, electronic or cosmetic problems your machine maybe experiencing. Whether your machines in need of repair, refurbishment or upgrading or if you’re looking to buy or sell machines, we’d love to hear from you.
Rescuing and customising arcade machines and jukeboxes is central to our work. Bringing them back from the brink, to once again be loved and cherished for years to come is a pleasure.
We are avid recyclers and upcyclers who would rather repair and reuse than bin and buy new. We waste very little and believe almost everything can be reused or refashioned into something new and cool. By combining the old with new and adding a pinch of creativity we aim to bring you something special.

Our Services

We provide many services and solutions for the retro gaming community, these are some of our most popular.


Our skilled technicians can quickly diagnose issues and problems with your hardware and software, to restore your machine to full function. When an item arrives for repair we’ll let you know what the system’s problem is, how it can be fixed and an estimate for the costs.
When possible we will suggest multiple solutions that reflect your budget and requirements. We won’t push you into an expensive option you don’t need, but we will be honest and resourceful with our suggestions.


If your machine has taken a knock and suffered damage we have the knowledge and the tools to diagnose and repair it.
Whatever condition or problem your system has, we can provide the necessary TLC needed to give it a new lease of life.


As some machines get older the hardware inside them can become slow and unresponsive, affecting game play and user experience. These issues can be fixed with upgrading RAM, CPUs and hard drives.
You may want a bigger screen, better buttons and joysticks or new games installed. We can also install new LED lights, USB sockets for recharging your phone, tablet, phones and beverage holders. If you’ve got an idea for a mod just ask.

We buy video arcade machines in all conditions; if you’ve got unwanted machines or parts, please get in touch. We also take in machines as part exchange, which is great if you’re looking to replace a system or would like to reduce the cost of one of our sales items.
