I’ve always loved games. My gran introduced me to Rummy when I was about eight and is still to this day the driving force behind family games. In my early twenties a friend re-introduced me to board games, but these weren’t the same titles from my childhood. These were exciting, strategic, complex, funny, well thought out, balanced, social games. Board games had got exponentially better… and I was hooked.
This drastic improvement in board games has resulted in an explosion in popularity. Year on year more and more people are choosing to get their friends around a table and play. In recent years board game cafes have been popping up all over the UK to meet this demand. The premise is simple – come in, play games, eat and drink, have fun. There’s a book I love called Steal Like An Artist by Austin Kleon. In it he suggests you “write the book you want to read”. Twist is my book, it’s my dream hangout – chilling with friends, board games, tasty homemade food and quality drinks.”
If you fancy losing yourself in some games, Twist is £5 per person for unlimited use of our 500+ library of board games in a four hour slot (although we don’t mind if you stay all day when nobody else is waiting for the table). If more than 500 sounds like an overwhelming number, then just give one of the staff a shout who’ll be able to guide you through the library, make recommendations for your group and even teach you a game or two.
If you’re just after a coffee, cocktail or bite to eat then we also operate just as a usual café/bar would with a huge selection of local beers and cider, a cocktail menu and freshly made to order pizza and other tasty treats. You can book your table in advance via their website or just turn up.
