We booked a large table and said who ever wants to come for the kids birthday. They were happy for me to bring a cake for everyone to share and we brought nice drinks from them. A lovely day out

Such a wonderful cafe with a fantastic layout, brilliant menu and the loveliest staff. The overwhelming game selection is the icing on the cake. Perfect for families, gamers, couples, groups... pretty much everyone.
