    Inspired by the Swedish forest (skogen) this café offers delicious Scandinavian cuisine in a cool and calm space. The inspiration comes from our cosy little summerhouse on the south coast of Sweden where generations of the Andersson family have enjoyed summers for over 40 years. We wanted to capture a feeling of the calm woodland and glorious coastline and share with you the fresh cuisine of cured fish, fantastic cheese, artisan bread and healthy salads.

    Café
    2700 board games for you to play; tea, coffee and cake to sustain you. You pay a cover charge per person, and can stay for up to 3 hours. There's plenty of help choosing (and setting up/playing/learning) games, and some for sale if you can't bear to part with them. If your friends are all philistines who don't like board games, or you just want to meet some new people, Tuesday evenings are open gaming so you can come and join a group and maybe play something new. The fourth Sunday of each month is PlayTest, where you can bring a board game you are designing, for members of the public to play and give you feedback.
