What is a board game café?

Playopolis seeks to re-ignite the lost ‘social’ element of the café by combining café food and table service with a library of board, card and party games. It’s a great place for families and friends to have a meal, a drink (alcoholic or otherwise) and a great time together.

How much does it cost?

The cover charge is £3.50 per person, which you pay once you leave. This covers you for up to three hours of gaming and is payable on exit. If you choose not to eat or drink at all during your stay, the cover charge is £5.00. There are no other costs beyond any food and drink you choose to purchase which will be placed on your tab.

Can I play as many games as I want?

Yes! Your cover charge gives you three hours of using our library, it’s not based on type or amount of games. We do ask that you don’t pick up too many games at once so that other customers still have the choice to play.

Why do you charge more if I don’t eat or drink?

Our business depends on people using Playopolis as a café and ordering food and drink when they visit. Our cover charge alone isn’t enough to support the business, so we ask for a little more from groups who don’t order to ensure we can keep Playopolis running and affordable for everyone.

What types of game do you have?

All types! We have around 700 games in our library and we buy new games every week. Our library is designed to appeal to players of all ages and all experience levels, from children as young as two years old to the most hardcore of experiences, we’ve got something for you.

Do you sell games?

Yes! We sell a selection of popular games, and on average offer lower prices than Amazon and other high street retailers.

Do you cater for allergies and auto-immune diseases?

We always try our very best. We know it’s hard to find somewhere to eat on a restricted diet as one of us has a daughter with Celiac disease. If you know in advance that you’re coming in, then please get in touch with us before and we can source ingredients for you.

As we work in a very small kitchen, we can’t give an absolute guarantee on cross contamination, but our staff have been trained in the risks and we will always endeavour to do our best.

Do you do private events?

Yes! We regularly run private events. We can host everything from your children’s birthday to your hen/stag party to a corporate team building event. We tailor all our events individually to make the perfect experience, so we ask that you get in touch either on Facebook or by email to arrange an event.

Do you accept card payments?

Yes! We accept cash and all major cards, including American Express.

Can children come unattended?

Children over the age of eleven can visit Playopolis unattended, but we do ask that unattended children pay the full cover charge of £3.50.
