We’re open Monday to Friday 7.30pm – 11pm, closed on Sundays and Bank Holidays. Players are very welcome to arrive early. There is no volunteer on Mondays and Thursdays, which may be very quiet as a result.

We also hold regular events aimed at welcoming more women into chess.

If you’d like to promote your chess book, DVD or website, please just let us know. We’d love to have you as guest Player of the Day, show some live coverage of tournaments and hold simuls. Always making sure that people can play casual chess too…that’s what we’re here for!
