My family had a great time, and we received recommendations for games that worked for a young child but were still fun for us adults.

Fantastic selection of games and the staff were incredibly helpful with recommendations and explaining the rules. The food and drinks were good also - if not a little expensive, but absolutely worth it for the atmosphere. It was well done under level 2 also - social distancing, the hand sanitiser etc. I also adored the songs in the bathrooms to sing while washing hands and ended up singing Karma Chameleon all night.

I love the wide selection of games and the fact that you are able to fit so many groups of people. Your staff are very friendly and helpful. I especially appreciated the extra precautions you have taken to keep everyone safe under Level 2.

I thought it was excellent. I have never been before but i thought you adapted to COVID level 2 really well also. Lastly, the service was amazing. The guy that served us helped us find a game and helped us learn it. Excellent and will definitely back. Looking forward to it already.

It was our 2nd year anniversary, and I wanted my wife and I to do something different! Counter Culture was a hit, we were well looked after by the staff, when choosing a game, they not only recommended a game, they actually took the time to take us through the game! Food was fantastic, tasted great! To top it off they, shouted us a cocktail each to celebrate our special day! Big shout out to the team at Counter Culture, will see you soon in the near future and we will definitely be back with the family! Blessings Davis & Nae

We had a wonderful time at Counter Culture last night. Delicous food, drinks and atmosphere. Only downside was we were sitting 2nd table from the front and next to the toilet. Each time a door was opened - we got a draught. We did not ask to move tables so next time we visit - we will ensure we are sitting elsewhere in the Cafe, And we will be back! Thank you for a wonderful evening :-)
