    Had a super fun time playing the many nostalgic arcade games at Four Quarters. The staff were friendly and helpful. The machines work only with US quarters but you can buy these from the bar: you get 18 quarters for £10. It worked out about £15 per head per hour for the games plus the drinks (these were good value, not pricey). I’ll be coming back.

    Fun activity, downstairs offered a more private setting for playing games as a group , really like that we didn't have to book anything but probably recommending doing so if your own to come with a big group. Enjoyed the cocktails and the pizza.

    The ambiance and range of vintage arcades was great and staff were friendly. It was quiet when we visited, so no issue with jumping on machines and having fun. The range of soft drinks was a bit limited which is why I’ve only gone for 4/5, but I’ll definitely return for more fun

    An honest review from an old regular - I used to spend long evenings in the Elephant & Castle store knocking out high scores with mates. At 4 quarters for a pound it was a great day out, but at 4 quarters for £2.50 in the Bristol store, it’s just too expensive to justify visiting any more. It used to feel like a fun, affordable, nostalgic way to play the games I grew up on. Now it feels like using these same games to take advantage and fleece me for cash, which is a real disappointment.

    Let down by the total lack of care for the toilets and customers. Having a toilet without light is crazy! Do you want people to make a mess on the floor?! And when it’s brought to your attention, don’t shrug it off and say “oh yea we’re looking into it”. Jeez, it’s a light bulb not rocket science! Has a few games, and is quiet. N64 has more games but is quite booming.
