Goodtime Games is a Board Games Café, which is a place where you can book a table for a few hours relax with some friends, and play any number of new and exciting games! If you’re new to board games and aren’t sure where to begin, our resident experts are on-hand to help get you started with some recommendations, and even teach you how to play!

We’ve designed the café to be the perfect spot for a lunchtime escape, after-work drinks, an evening of entertainment, or just a place to enjoy some downtime with friends and family. Whether you’re a complete beginner, casual player or a seasoned strategist; we’ll have something for you from our extensive collection. There really are games for all occasions, settings and groups- no matter their composition! Be it first dates, family get-togethers or students meeting ahead of a night out, we’ve got you covered!

Board Games are great for getting away from screens and connecting with friends, family and acquaintances in a real-life. We’ve designed Goodtime Games to be the perfect spot for a lunchtime escape, after-work drinks, an evening of entertainment, or just a place to enjoy some downtime. Whether you’re a complete beginner, casual player or a seasoned strategist; we’ll have something for you from our extensive collection and are always on-hand if you need any help.

Tabletop games have experienced something of a renaissance over the past fifteen years or so, but don’t worry if you’ve missed it so far- our resident experts are here to help get you up to speed, and started on your voyage of board-game discovery! Of course if you’d prefer something familiar (with a heavy dose of nostalgia) we also have a good selection of everyone’s family favourites in our library as well!

We’re a small, independent operation that values its staff and seeks to offer a unique, comfortable space for both visitors, and the wider board-gaming community. Our pricing structure is designed to be affordable to regular visitiors while rewarding our full and part-time staff with the national living wage and 100% of all tips.

We are proud of our new low-waste, vegan and vegetarian menu, and we’re actively developing it to minimise cruelty to animals and damage to the environment. While we still have a long way to go; we are taking steps to reduce our own impact as far as possible. We believe it is especially important that businesses (not just individuals) take steps to reduce their waste output.

Note: If you’d like to make a booking that is not for today’s date, please use the form on our Bookings page.
