The Club is structured very simply. The Club Secretary maintains all responsibilities. All members are equal. The ‘Council of Justice’ will be selected from early/dedicated members with a penchant for delivering justice. The Council will be subject to periodic reshuffles to ensure Justice prevails over corruption.

There will be a limited number of memberships as to not overpopulate the premises. This number will be judged by the Secretary depending on attendance rates. Applicants must wait 2 days after application to receive full membership.

The Standard club membership currently requires a quarterly payment of £15 or an annual payment of £45. A daily rate of £4 is also available upon request for special cases.

These membership fees will be paid on first attending the club in said quarter unless requested.

Generally Daily attendance subs will be free but some club events will require a small entry fee.

If a member does not pay 2 consecutive quarterly payments their membership may be terminated.

Wish I could get here more often. It's the ultimate in gaming and nostalgia! Great bar selection too!

Paul Allen

I don't get to go here enough! As a tentative gamer I thought I'd try it out and ended up having loads of fun. I've been able to try so many different types of games since I bought a membership. The people are always friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed. Really nice selection of drinks, too 🙂

Lucy Wallace

Great little spot to come hang out, play Street Fighter and drink one (or many) of the Gins going on any given day!
