Booking slots start at a two-hour time slot coming in at £30.
The décor of the space is all things foosball related, for the serious players there will be a chance to learn moves and trick shots via the wall-mounted screens.

The space has a light-hearted atmosphere with the opportunity to get serious if desired. Founder of Foosball Club, JP Thompson says "It's great to finally give London a professional setup of foosball for everyone to enjoy. We wanted to capture all the fun and talent of the professionals and put it into a venue where all of London can enjoy. We stock more table footballs in one place than anywhere else in town and hope that people have fun using them" Food comes in that perfect circular oven-baked goodness. Cooked fresh in the pizza oven the homegrown pizzas come in all the usual formats. Highlights easily include Cotto ham, wild mushrooms, mozzarella and Pomodoro. Another fan favourite would be the fennel sausage, caramelised red onion, spinach, mozzarella and Pomodoro. For added convenience, a pizza and craft beer can be pre-ordered online for £12.50.
Given the current situation with COVID, Foosball Club have put extra precaution into the format. All bookable areas are over two metres apart giving people the chance to relax whilst playing while all coins needed to use the machines are pre-sealed and washed after each use. All areas will be sanitized after each use and food/drink orders can be done through a dedicated app. Foosball Club has been created by JP Thompson who’s been the curator of the London Table Football Championship since 2008. His aim is to share the world of pro foosball to the masses across the capital. The concept behind the Foosball Club is to allow fans and friends to play in the same conditions as an international tournament with the comfort of food and drinks.
