A wonderful little find, the staff were really helpful and friendly. We wanted to play something we have not played before, gave a few suggestions of what we liked and picked out three brilliant games, we had great fun playing all of them. We ordered a tea and coffee, both really lovely and served quickly even though very busy. Would definitely need to book on weekends but well worth it.
A nice board games cafe. You have to pay per hour for playing games. The rates are cheaper if you order a drink. They have a wide variety of games. They can support groups of all sizes: from 2 to 10+. Short games, long games; serious games, casual games; deck building games, dungeon crawlers; they have many board games that will suit your needs/wants. The staff is also awesome and will recommend games or even teach you how to play them if you ask them.
