Can someone under 18 come along? 

Although we’re all big weans-at-heart here at Fayre Play, we operate a strict adults only policy in our venues so anyone under 18 won’t be able to come along. Please note that you may be asked for ID upon entry, as we operate the Challenge-25 policy.

What form of payment should I bring?

Our venues only accept card or contactless payments, so there’s no need to bring cash with you on the day. Worried about splitting the bill? We can process separate card payments for you, no bother.

Where are you located/how do I get there?

You can find our fun-filled venue at 14 Picardy Place, across from the St. James Quarter at the top of Leith Walk.

We’re less than a 10 minute walk from Edinburgh Waverley Train Station and the brand new Picardy Place Tram stop is directly outside our front door, with regular services throughout the day.

Alternatively, there are various bus routes that stop near our venue, or you can hop in an Uber/ Taxi from elsewhere in the city.

Do you accept walk-ins?

Walk-ins are more than welcome, so feel free to rock up and roll up! If you’re part of a group or if you need a specific arrival time however, we advise booking in advance to avoid disappointment. Please note, we expect to be extremely busy during the first wee while after our opening date, so we advise booking in advance to guarantee your space.

I’m running late - can I still play?

If you’re more than 15 minutes late, I’m afraid we can’t guarantee you a new slot. Please chat to our friendly front desk team when you arrive, and they’ll be more than happy to confirm if there are any alternative slots available.

If you prefer, we can reschedule your booking to an alternative date. Just send us your booking reference along with your preferred slot, and we’ll amend your booking.

What games are on offer?

You can check out a full list of our competitive fairground games here.

As well as a stunnin’ selection of cocktails and scran, we also have a photobooth, plenty of Insta opportunities and much more. Have a wee nosy and book here when you’re ready.

Can I order food and drink with my booking?

Yes! If you’d like to skip the hassle on the day, you can purchase our “Games, Food & 2 Drinks Package” which gets you:

  • All the games, twice over
  • 2 drinks (including cocktails)
  • Any main dish + fries

Head to our Packages & Pricing page to find out more.

Do you have gluten free/veggie/vegan options?

We have something for everyone here at Fayre Play! We can make alterations to some dishes to make them gluten free for our coeliac pals, and we have some bangin’ veggie & vegan options too.

How can I win a prize?

Whilst our focus is more about having fun playing our games against yer pals, we do have a variety of fun prizes available!

At Duck Hunt (hook-a-duck), bag a mini-prize by hooking a duck with a star on the bottom. (Difficulty level: a game of chance for lucky duckers)

You can also have a go at winning one of our duck plushies by collecting prize stamps. To be in with a shot you’ll need to achieve over a certain number of points at each game. (Difficulty level: ducking hard!)

Do you do NHS/Blue Light discount?

We offer our game play tickets at a discounted price of £12.95 each for NHS and Blue Light staff. Just drop us a message, and we’ll send over a link so you can book your discounted tickets.

These tickets are valid on Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday, and can only be booked via the link mentioned.

Please remember to bring valid ID along, as we’ll need to check it when you arrive.

Do you do Student/Trade discount?

Yes! Students & Trade can enjoy savings on the games with our “Game & Drink Ticket”. These tickets are valid on Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday, and can be booked online.

Please remember to bring valid ID along, as we’ll need to check it when you arrive.
