Library Pot


The Library Pot is a cool café, restaurant and games club. We have hundreds of games: board games and table top games of all sorts (but not video games). You are invited to join in and play! For fun! A session lasts up to 5 or 6 hours, choosing and playing game after game.

There can be laughter, competition and co-operation. You can change your perspective by wearing a costume – try the strawberry outfit or bring one of your own!

There is no universal definition of what a games café is or does, but there are a few of us now in the UK and more arriving all the time. At the Library Pot we have alcohol but also an Italian espresso machine and lots of teas – our Flora teas that bloom in the glass are beautifully popular.  We have proper tasty meals to keep you going during your games.

And did we mention the ball pool? Each of the games cafés in the UK is independent – each has its own menu, its own pricing policy and own slots for open ended or time-boxed gaming. Some allow booking only during the week. At The Library Pot we encourage you to book when you are coming for a meal to ensure we get you the right table.
