How to Find Thirsty Meeples Board Game Café

Thirsty Meeples is located at Gloucester Green in the centre of Oxford, off George Street and next to the bus station. Historically, Gloucester Green was the site of the city’s former cattle market. The area has since been redeveloped with Thirsty Meeples one of a number of shops, restaurants and cafés that front Gloucester Green. An open-air market still takes place on the Green twice a week: a food market on a Wednesday and an antiques market on a Thursday.
