The Hideout is a board game bar and café that offers a cozy and relaxed environment for people to come together with their friends and family to grab a drink, a bite to eat and play some board games.
You are welcome to visit us without a reservation. However, we do have a limited number of tables so we would recommend booking in advance during our busier periods. (Evenings and Weekends)
Some games are over in a matter of minutes, while some could keep you playing for hours. It’s up to you how long you want to book your table for. You can keep the good times rolling!
Not at all. The Hideout is suitable for the whole family. We have a large selection of board games suitable for ages 5 to 105.
Anyone younger than 13 years (12 and below) cannot be left in our venue unattended at any time. They’ll need to be supervised by an adult over the age of 18.
Those 13 to 17 years old can be in our venue until 8pm. After 8pm they must be accompanied by an adult (18+).
No under 18s are allowed in the venue after 9pm.
We have a large collection of over 200 boardgames that cater to various player levels and interests. Check out THE GAMES page for a list of all the boardgames we have available.
If the table is free after your timeslot is due to finish, our hosts will be able to offer you options on extending your game if this is something you’d like to do!
We sure do! Our food selection on opening will be simplistic and designed as quick bites you can enjoy while staying focussed on winning whatever game you happen to be playing.
We’ve also got a fantastic selection of cocktails available. Head over to our MENU page for more information.
