Private hire bookings are our most popular service. We advise booking around 8 weeks in advance, but of course we can check availability for any dates at any time. Please feel free to check out our customer reviews on our social media to see what other party hosts have said about their events!
For private hire bookings a £50.00 deposit is due 2 weeks before the date of your booking, with the remainder paid on the day. Refunds for cancellations will not be permitted if the booking is cancelled less than 48 hours before the planned start time, or if guests do not attend as planned.
Guests should arrive no earlier than 15 minutes before the start time of a private hire event. Hosts may drop off any supplies at any time beforehand (e.g. food, cake etc). Access cannot be granted earlier as we have to allow time for public closure, cleaning and reset of equipment between bookings.
While we do not offer party decorations as part of our private hire service, hosts are welcome to bring along anything e.g. balloons, banners etc. Please note we cannot offer additional setup time for this and so should be factored into the length of the booking you require.
You may bring your own consoles, laptops, games and/or controllers to use on our screens if you wish. Please be aware the company does not accept responsibility for any loss or damage of personal belongings brought into the venue.
Under 18’s should not log in to any online services using their own personal profile, unless given permission by staff beforehand. We cannot guarantee your online security if you do so, and always recommend playing on our own profiles.
No minors should leave the site during a booking unless accompanied by a parent/supervisor. Please be aware that CCTV is in operation 24/7 across the site.
WC and handwashing facilities are available on-site.
For wheelchair access please note, our entrance features two steps down from the pavement into the café. We have a portable access ramp which can be easily deployed at any time. The café is on one ground floor with disabled WC available. Baby changing facilities are currently not provided.
The company holds all required health & safety and public liability insurances and copies are available upon request.
We trust that guests will respect the venue and treat equipment, and others, with care. The company reserves the right to cancel a booking, end a booking early or ask guests to leave if there is reasonable cause to do so e.g. antisocial behaviour or mistreatment of equipment. Management decisions are final on these matters and no refunds will be issued.
Important information about age ratings:
All games are age-rated dependent on their content. We will not allow access to age-restricted games (e.g. PEGI 16+, PEGI 18+, BBFC-rated games) to anyone under the specified age. To this end, we use games which go up to and including the PEGI 12+ rating (or equivalent) during daytime, with PEGI 16+ and 18+ available during designated 18+ times only (normally after 6pm), at which time alcohol is also on sale.
When booking private hire events, the host may request any age-restriction limit on games used during the event.
Important information about alcohol sales:
During normal trading hours, we permit alcohol sales only during designated 18+ time only (normally after 6pm). Similarly, we will only serve alcohol during a private event if all guests are over the age of 18.
While we will do our best to accommodate your date and time requests, we may already have other bookings in place. We will strive to meet your needs and will contact you to discuss and confirm details once we have received your request.
