Unplug, Unwind, Relax!
Snacks and Ladders - the new name for Board Cafe Bar, the Isle of Wights first board game cafe
PLEASE EXCUSE US WHILE WE CHANGE!
Due to a legal issue with the name Board, we are having to completely rebrand ourselves. This is a fairly complicated process, which we're undertaking during a global pandemic .... not ideal!
We're developing a new website, booking system and online ordering system, so this site will look a little shabby for a while! Hopefully our shiny new ones will be available soon!
What to Expect
Lots of games! We are a Board Game Cafe after all! Our super friendly staff are here to help make your visit a great experience. We also offer great tasting local cakes and bakes, our fabulous build your own menu, where you can build your grazing board, pizza or dessert, freshly made paninis and nibbles and locally sourced coffee and teas.
How It Works
Come in, we’ll find you a seat and point you in the direction of some games. We offer an express games session for £2 for an hour, a 2 hour session for £3 or 3 hours for £4. During school holidays we do limit our daytime sessions to 2 hours.
If you’re just after a drink or a bite to eat, and not playing games the cover charge obviously doesn’t apply!
Our huge library of games has something for everyone. Traditional games like Monopoly, Scrabble and even Snakes & Ladders sit alongside modern classics like Catan, Pandemic and Ticket to Ride, along with a whole host of new and unusual games for you to discover.
We keep adding to our library, and refreshing games to keep them up to date! That’s why we need to charge our cover charge!
Food & Drink
We have a selection of locally baked cakes along with snack bowls to graze on while you play, freshly made toasted paninis and more. We use locally blended teas and locally roasted coffees. Plus, we use plant based biodegradable packaging for all of our disposables.
Our games library caters for all tastes, skill levels and time scales. Want to know more? Take a look!
At Snacks and Ladders we have taken the situation regarding Covid-19 very seriously. Our main priority is to provide a safe, enjoyable experience for you, while keeping our staff and visitors as safe as possible.
