About Us

Play Bideford combines Arcade Games and Amusements, eSports, Retro Gaming and Modern Gaming in an action-packed environment for families through to adults. Whether you want to relive your childhood playing our Star Wars Trilogy Shooter with a bottle of beer, bring the kids and relax in the café or meet up with your friends and get involved in our eSports Tournaments, Play Bideford is the place to go. And best of all…. Once you have paid to enter, everything is free (café/bar excluded). That’s right, no need to bring change to put into the arcade machines, football table or amusements, they are all set to free play! That’s because, at Play Bideford you Pay Once, Play for Hours.

As well as an action-packed venue, we have a fully stocked bar and a Café area. We are open to everybody, from children through to Adults. Children aged 11 and above are welcome on their own until 8pm and then with an adult after. We also accept bookings for Children’s parties, Stag and Hen dos and Corporate hire.

We are located on the High Street, on the left hand side as you go up the hill, just after the first left hand turn to the indoor market.


A Play Pass gives you access to Play Bideford for the whole of that day, and you can come and go as much as you like.

Adults £7

Children 6-16 years £4

Family of Four £18 (Two Adults, Two Children)

One Month Unlimited Access Pass £25 – This pass allows you to come as many times as you like during one 30 day period.

Children aged 12 plus are allowed into Play unsupervised at Management’s discretion, although it’s much more fun playing the games with your kids. Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

*Cafe/Bar/Shop not included
