Are you looking to game while you enjoy a pint of beer and some mouth-watering snacks? If yes, London has a ton of options available for you. This piece will cover some of the best spots in the city and what makes them stand out from the rest:

The Four Thieves

This pub features a basement with an escape room which you and your friends can enjoy as you learn how to work as a team. If golfing appeals to you more, you can take advantage of the plonk golf section. This area allows you to take part in indoor golfing, which can get quite competitive. You can also enjoy other activities, such as swing dance, comedy, and live acts. There is always something exciting taking place in this pub, making it a go-to for anyone searching for fun games.

You can look forward to remote-controlled racing, retro arcade games, and VR booths like you have never seen for gaming. It is also exciting that the beer served comes from on-site brewing, enabling you to enjoy it fresh from the tap. You will also enjoy the variation in the drinks. Foods served include fried calamari, chili nachos, vegan nuggets, hummus, tacos, and feta burgers.

The Four Quarters

This pub features retro arcade game screens and offers a variety of crafty ales to its customers. Arcade games include Street Fighter and Sega Rally, and the establishment provides free gaming consoles too. If you want something different from the games, you can enjoy the film nights and Mario Kart competitions during the week. And over the weekend, you can look forward to some good music courtesy of deejays.

The Peckham spot would be an excellent place to start, on the Rye Lane. This establishment came to be back in 2014 and has since become a go-to for many a gamer. It offers craft beers and has a cosy room where gamers can enjoy up to ten retro consoles. While here, you can go to the hidden basement cocktail bar for more fun and even spend time in ‘The Confession Box.’

The kitchen serves loaded fries, grilled cheese, hot dogs, and other snacks, keeping you fuelled while enjoying the many games. All arcades use US quarters, and you can purchase four quarters for a pound. You can now see the inference to the name. You will be happy to know that the consoles are free to play.


This E-sports Studio and Internet Café is one of a kind and allows you to relax, strap in, and enjoy online gaming for hours on end.

Once you ring the bell, a member of the staff should be by your side in the next forty seconds. And while they cater to your needs, they will not interrupt your session, allowing you to focus on winning.

You will also love the range in titles, including the League of Legends, Call of Duty, and World of Warcraft. And if this is not enough, you are free to download the games you find more interesting.
