We had our first but won't be or last visit to Chance and Counters in Bristol. Brilliant experience. Whilst the seats are a little uncomfortable (might have to being a cushion next time), we loved our time there and can't wait for our next visit. Having staff suggest games and help with learning how to play was the best and vital part. Great choice of food and drink. Highly recommend. Thanks for a great time.

Great game selection and cocktails! Narrow walkway to pick board games and also where the bar is to order drinks etc and pay at the end. So should be full table service which would prevent this build up of queueing and people trying to choose a game!

Great place, good selection of games but not many new ones. Would happily go back every week if I lived in Bristol!

Small space means it's very loud, and poor ventilation makes food smells hang in the air. The food is nice, but takes a long time to appear. Staff very helpful. Game selection still great.

The service and overall experience is wholly positive and the only suggestion that I would make is that the membership offer is somewhat limited. We were keen to support chance and counters further but we live too far away to be able to take advantage of the only benefit which is reduction in table cover price.

Really great experience, we really enjoyed it! There is a huge variety of games to place and it's so easy to lose yourself in the games. The staff were also so friendly and recommended different games we would like. The only thing that took away from the experience was how loud it was! I understand people will want to get together and play games and it can get loud but a couple of loud groups meant that it was hard to even hear ourselves at times! We will definitely return but possibly for an afternoon session.

Great night, really enjoyed it. Really good explanation from our board game guru Beth (I think) and the whole experience was lovely. Will be back as soon as possible and will bring all our friends!

Staff couldn't have been lovelier. The guru's are very knowledgeable and help to really enhance your experience. We also had the food here which I must safe was very good! Definitely great place to grab a delicious lunch while you play board games. They had a good selections of drinks too with some local beers and delicious milkshakes. The only thing that was a bit unfortunate for us was there was a crowd of quite young girls who were very into constantly shrieking which did ruin the abundance a bit for us...and this is coming from a group of quite loud 20 year olds
