As you can tell from our name, Sugar and Dice Board Game Cafe, we are so much more than your regular cafe. On top of our delicious homemade meals, we have hundreds of games just waiting for you to play!

How does it work?

If you are just here to nibble our freshly baked cakes, grab a cup of our unique blend of coffee or simply buy a new game from us, then please come in, relax and take a seat. If you want to dabble into the world of board games, then you’ve come to the right place. Don’t worry if our board game shelf intimidates you… We are here to help! All our staff can suggest games for you and your group, teach you the rules and help set up the game, so you can start having fun immediately. There is a cover charge to use the library of games and this ensures that we can keep on getting in the latest and greatest games to further expand the collection on our shelves. This will also help to cover all those pieces that go missing or get damaged in the excitement of playing!


Cover Charge

It is £2 per person, per hour, to play as many games as you like. The charge will cap at £5 and if there is no one waiting to jump on your table, then we would love you to stay as long as you like, otherwise we do limit tables to four hours. We hope to mainly run on reservations, so do give us a call to book your table in advance (0151 345 6031) to avoid disappointment.

Opening Times

We open Thursday-Tuesday 12 noon – 10pm (Wednesday is our day off – when we play games at home). Occasionally we host Private Events, so do either call us up or check our website/social media before you come down to make sure we are open.

A Little Side-Note

We are a dog-friendly cafe, so feel free to bring along your well-behaved dogs for free treats and a bowl of water 🙂

We can’t wait to see you 🙂
