Do I need to book a table?

You do not need to book a table to visit our cafe. However, we recommend bookings for large groups to guarantee a table for your visit.

Is there a charge for visiting The Long Rest ?

We apply a cover charge for the table at different rates depending on the length of your visit, and if you use our table space for gaming. The rates are highlighted below:

One hour: £2.50 per person

Two hours £5.00 per person

Three hours: £6.50 per person

If you do not play any games during your visit, we will not charge you for the first hour of your visit.

Why am I being charged £6.50 per person when I make a booking ?

Every booking covers a 3-hour stay within our cafe, and gives you unlimited access to our library of board games. If you would like to make a booking, but want to change the duration of your stay, please contact us through our website, on social media or at

Does your cafe have accessible tables?

We have accessible seating on the ground floor with a few smaller tables - however, due to the nature of the building, the majority of our tables & game library is only accessible via staircases. There is also a step up into the cafe at the entrance, and at the moment we do not have an entrance ramp. If you would like to know whether the café can suit your needs, please get in touch with us.

Does your cafe have accessible toilets?

Our toilets are located on the first floor of the building. The nearest accessible toilets can be found at the Roman museum opposite the café.

Is your cafe dog friendly?

Absolutely! As long as your dogs are well-behaved (and able to navigate stairs!), we are happy to welcome your four-legged friends.
