Can I book?

Yes. Click the “BOOK NOW!” button at the top of the page to head to our reservations page. We allow some of our tables to be booked and keep the remainder for walk-ins on the day. 

What is the games session charge?

The games session charge is what you pay to come in and play games. Think of it like a ticket. Our games sessions charges go towards the cost of purchasing the games for the library, as well as repairing and replacing games. If you’re not playing games, and just enjoying food & drink then there’s no games session charge. 

Can I bring my own food/drinks?

No. Only food & drink purchased from Twist may be consumed here.

If you are celebrating a birthday and want to bring a cake you are more than welcome to bring one in, light candles and sing, but you can’t eat it at the cafe. We’re more than happy to portion it up and package it for you so that people can take it away.

If you are visiting with a child under 24 months please feel free to bring food & drink for them. We do not have a microwave to heat these items.

Can I purchase games?

Yes. We have a shop stocking lots of titles. If you’d like help choosing games please ask us, we’re always happy to make recommendations. 

Are children welcome?

Yes they are. Under 14s must be accompanied by an adult. Under 16s are welcome until 8pm, or later at the discretion of management. 16-17 year olds are welcome until 11pm. After 11pm we are strictly over-18s only for licensing reasons.  

Is Twist wheelchair accessible?

Yes, the ground floor is. About half of the ground floor tables are suitable for wheelchair users. Mobility scooters may or may not fit in the cafe depending on how full we are. The downstairs toilet is accessible. The first floor is only accessible by stairs. 

Is there parking?

Yes, directly behind us is Mayflower Street East Car Park.

You pay when you leave and it’s £2.40 up to two hours, £3.30 up to three hours, £3.50 up to six hours.

Are dogs welcome?

Well-behaved dogs are very welcome. We’ve got water bowls and treats so let us know if your dog is thirsty or needs a treat!
