Services and Prices
Quantum Web Cafe offers a wide range of services, many of which have been brought in as a result of customer feedback over the years. If you'd like to comment or make a suggestion or our services, you can do so on our Facebook page, or you can contact us directly.
General PC and Internet Use
PCs are available, without the need to book in advance, all day. Our highest hourly PAYG rate works out to be £4.00 and you only pay for the time you actually use. So, if you're less than an hour, it'll be less than £4.00. For example, 30 minutes would be £2. There’s a minimum charge of £1.00 which buys you up to 15 mins.
You can also buy a 4 hour timecard at the start or end of your session, for £11 and it will give you a 33% discount off our PAYG rate.
Remember, in our cafe you can use a PC as if it was your own without limitation, restriction or even annoying timer software. You can even charge your mobile at no extra cost while using our PCs!

1-2-1 Computer Assistance
Are you a bit naff, or rubbish at computers?
If you need very basic assistance with the printing, such as help to find where the print button is, we're more than happy to help you with basic things like that. Now, if you want us to sitdown with you and help you with all your printing, or fillout a form, or help you with your word processing, we can do that, but it's an additional fee.
For an additional £12 one of our trained staff members can sit with you for 30 minutes, and help you with your printing, or word processing. We still charge for your computer time, printing, and anything else you need from us. £12 is minimum charge. Strictly speaking, you don't need to book in advance for this service, however it's best that you arrange this in advance to ensure someone can help you (even the day before). If you don't book in advance, we might not be able to help you. We offer this service 7 days a week, however, we can only offer this service when there are 2 staff members on. So, you're best coming between 12-2pm Monday-Saturday, or anytime Sunday.
The library does offer a free 1-2-1 service once a week, and you have to book in advance.
Gaming and Leisure Use
The same price structure applies to Gaming as above, and in some stores the games PCs are in their own games zone to allow you to make as much noise as you like! There are also a number of discount schemes available for regular, semi regular or long session users, click here for details.
Games and patches change all the time - in fact pretty much every day, and sometimes twice a day when they issue updates, and it takes a real effort to keep on top of it as it takes a lot of time to update all the computers! We regularly update the games, so if your game does an update when you play it, our apologies! Let us know, and we will adjust your start time accordingly. If see a game you think we should have, let us know! Click here for the latest list and gaming news. Gamers in particular usually benefit from liking the Facebook page as some deals are designed for this audience only.
As of 2018 there were approximately 100 games on each PC including FPS (First Person Shooters, such as Left for Dead 2), RTS (Real Time Strategy such as Age of Empires), MMORG (Massively Multilayer On-line Role playing Games, such as World of Warcraft, League of Legends, WarThunder etc), and Racing genres. Oh, and Solitaire.
Our machines are well maintained, reliable and secure meaning that even sensitive business information can be worked on, processed, printed out and saved without any risk of unwanted viewers or viruses. These days, this is a very common use in internet cafes, especially for people who work on the road or at home and want a change of scene. You can even use remote dialing software from the cafés, such as www.logmein.com, which allows you to access your home or work PC from one of ours, or perhaps just plug in your laptop. Price structure for all these service is the same as above and the discount schemes also apply.
