RECOMMENDATION | Fun & Food at Dice & A Slice in Colchester -Essex
Found yourself with an hour or two to wile away? Head to Dice & A Slice in Colchester – home to a million boardgames (okay, maybe not literally) and a mouthwatering menu, it’s the perfect spot to unwind and have fun.
Home to an atmosphere so chilled it’s practically served with ice, it’s hard to believe that the site of Dice & A Slice used to be a bar. The cafe is home to over 400 board games, from the mainstream – Monopoly, Scrabble, chess – to the more niche (anyone for a round of Mafiozoo?) There are also games available for buying, too; if you’re looking for a brilliant new board game to take home, this is the place to visit, people. Can’t make the trek to Essex? Order online – they ship all around the UK.
You have a big decision to make when you step foot over the Dice & A Slice threshold, namely: do you want to play a game?
Nope, we’re not talking menacing Jigsaw-style; rather, you can choose whether you simply want to unwind over a cuppa, or if you want to try out one of those 100s of games at the same time. You can pay for an hour or for whole-day access, and can take your pick from any game in the room.
There are countless shelves to explore and whether you’re playing two-player or in a bigger group, you’ll be comfortable accommodated; there are larger tables for taking over in multi-player games and if you’re playing one-on-one, there are cosy window seats to curl up in, too.
It’s also super child-friendly, both in terms of menu, space and games, so it’s great for a summer holiday go-to, as well.
Whether you play or not, there’s one thing you definitely will do: drool over the menu. From handmade cakes to dishes of shareable nachos, there’s something for even the hungriest of visitors. When we visited, Mike had a diner-esque strawberry milkshake and I had a pot of tea with a gluten-free peanut butter chocolate brownie that was incredible. In fact, it almost – almost! – softened the blow of losing Frustration…

I’m a primary school teacher and I’m a mum to a beautiful, bright and bubbly six-year-old. I witness the ups and downs of wellbeing in children every day. Every parent faces the same dilemma – how to ensure the wellbeing of our children – particularly from a mental health perspective in a world that is more pressured than ever in more ways than one.
GREAT GIFT IDEAS FOR HIM | He’ll love this immersive Crime Scene Investigation Experience in Yorkshire
Anyone who fancies themselves a bit of a sleuth. If you’re an armchair detective and work out “whodunnit” before Poirot even twiddled his moustache or love watching real crime documentaries then this CSI Experience in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire is for you. Vouchers don’t have to be bought in pairs but I would say that to get the most out of the experience you’d be best off going with likeminded, crime-fighting friend.
If you love food and don’t know Sheffield very well then the Kelham Island Food Tour could be the one for you. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon, filled with many tasty delights whilst discovering new places around the much loved industrial part of town. The first time I ventured away from my city-centre haunts was shortly after finishing uni, when we discovered the Fat Cat pub and (more importantly) £2 pints of ale. It dumbfounded us that we’d never even heard of this part of town, so finding such an amazing place to drink after four years living in Sheffield was quite a late discovery!
I am a pub girl through and through and a glutton for a good, hearty menu. Forever hunting out new locations to catch up with my friends or to go for lunch with the family, so was super excited to discover this little gem situated in the beautiful Sutton.
