The award-winning Snacks and Ladders board game Café in Newport is to move to larger premises just 3 doors down the road.
Since they picked up an award ranking them in the top 12 board game cafes in the country the hugely popular establishment has looked to secure a larger home, in which the business can continue to grow.
The move to a larger site will allow them to offer more seating as well as a larger eating capacity and will also allow them to increase their already extensive library of board games. Greater capability to host larger-scale events is also another factor with the café hosting popular pub quizzes and celebrity events.
But don’t worry, they aren’t moving far – in fact, they are moving just 3 doors down the road, to the current home of local art store Forget Me Not after they announced they were shutting up shop after over 30 years of trading.
In a statement on their Facebook page, they said:
“We’re levelling up from number 66 to 70 – literally 3 doors down the road!
“The larger space will mean we will no longer need to advise people to book ahead, we can run bigger and even better events, parties, and much more. We can also continue to grow our role play gamers community and provide a venue for social gatherings.“This is a huge move and we’re hoping to get some help from the amazing community that have supported us so far. We aren’t looking for financial support, we’ve managed to raise the funds for the move ourselves, but we do need help getting the new building ready!.“In the meantime, we’ll be open with slightly altered opening hours until we make the move – which we’re aiming to be in mid October!”
