Great place, very nice staff, amazing selection of games, including most of the new and popular titles. One of the best board game cafe's I've been to.

Games are brilliant, staff lovely but food and drink prices are just far too high for what they are

Finally a board game cafe in Bath! Friendly staff who have great knowledge of the copious amounts of board games on offer. Great atmosphere too! I hope in the future they’ll looking into running Tabletop RPG / D&D nights as it would be great to go somewhere locally for it. Will definitely be coming back!

We loved the place. Needs some tweaks. Atmosphere could be made a bit more cozy rather than rigid, lined up, functional tables. Value for playing was great. Food and Drink lets it all down as very over priced for what it was and cafe couldn't cope with demand. If the food had have been more reasonably priced, we probably would have spent more (ironically!)

We had SO MUCH FUN! This was so ideal for anyp of people!! We especially loved how the employees can help you choose a game based on what you like/dislike as a group and overall, an extremely fun experience! I would like to suggest more extravagant milkshakes and maybe a LITTLE bit of decor inside the building.

Place was nice, wide selection of games and some good recommendations. We had cakes, which were so-so - the apple cake was a lot nicer than the millionaires shortbread!

An amazing set of games to choose from. Staff really helpful and friendly. We had a great time and had enough time to play 4 games! The only improvement would be value for money on the food options.

A really unique experience in a laid back environment. The food seemed slightly overpriced, but that wouldn't stop me fully recommending this cafe for a half-day out with friends.

Very impressed with the service and knowledge of your staff. I've been to other board games cafes, but the recommendations your staff can give and the set up service (showing you how to play the game) really make a difference to the experience! I will definitely be back.

We had a great afternoon playing boardgames. The staff were very helpful and supportive, but also let you get on with things. They have a huge range of games - you could never get bored there! And they have good drinking options too. We couldn't have asked for a more entertaining Saturday afternoon

First time visiting & had a really good time, never have I seen so many games to play & the staff are all very friendly & extremely helpful & couldn’t do enough for you. I will definitely be returning only 1 minor negative & can be fixed where we sat we did all get cold, due to the front door not being kept closed.

Excellent game recommendations for initially 2 peple and then a large group of 6 that couldn't decide between party and strategy - so we got a bit of both! Drinks were very good although a double gin was £12, which seems very over-priced, even for Bath. Sandwiches were great, but would have liked more hot food options such as toasties/paninis or pizza by the slice. Overall a brilliant night and we will definitely be back soon!

Very expensive in comparison to Chance and Counters. The staff were friendly but the games gurus didn't proactively offer advice
