A well-loved board game cafe has parted ways with its sister business.

Slice and Dice, in St Benedicts Street, gained a sibling earlier this year when its owner launched a new venture.

Samantha Whitehouse opened the retro game bar Barcadia in Prince of Wales Road with Pete Leigh in May.

But a statement posted to Slice and Dice's social media today announced that Slice and Dice had since fully separated from Barcadia.

Both businesses will remain open but will no longer have any involvement with each other. 

The statement said: "It is with a heavy heart that I announce that Slice and Dice is parting ways with Barcadia.

"We wish the team and the new direction all the best - we’re going back to focusing on the future of Slice and Dice and we have so many exciting things planned."

It added: "We’re so grateful to have some of the wonderful Barcadia staff joining us here so come and say hi as they join us from this week.

"Thank you all for supporting us as always and we look forward to hopefully hosting you at Slice and Dice soon."
