Dropped by on a brief visit; a nice mid-sized café with a plethora of games to play and purchase. The café has a good selection of beverages and food, prompt service and welcoming staff. Well worth an afternoon or evening’s visit.

As a family we love board games and spent hours here. Love the milkshakes, drinks and toasties and cakes, which can get expensive, but loved every minute of it. Hope to be back soon.

We finally visited the Ludorati Cafe in Nottingham last week. We were blown away by its massive selection of games, escape room and even a board game league! The cafe takes board games seriously but doesn't expect every customer to be an expert. The hot...More

I would just go be on the safe side. You can play scrabble and a few basic games for nothing but gaming tables where you can play the wider range of games are 1.99 each per hour. Well worth it. Ask for advice for a good... More
