Only a 0 for food as I didn’t try any - but the menu looked decent for the kitchen size. Really friendly staff during our visit and during prior communication. Lovely layout inside, and great variety of games. It was really useful that staff themselves knew about the games and that there was a game guide.

It was our first visit (5 of us) and we all loved it. Made to feel very welcome and the fact that we didn't actually get to play our game (too much chat) was not a problem at all. Good selection of scrummy drinks and the arrangement to order food and have it delivered worked perfectly. Lovely atmosphere and we will all certainly return with family and friends.

We had a fun time for our first visit here, the milk shakes were delicious. We were sad to hear that the cake suppliers weren’t supplying cake to the board house, so we couldn’t purchase any, we believe this is being resolved soon with a new supplier.

As always our time at The Board House was fun as well as relaxing.. there is a wide selection of games and drinks and most importantly a really nice atmosphere. I like the set up of pay to play and the staff team know their board games! The events are really fun particularly the themed DnD and also the quiz nights I rated the food a 8 as there are yummy snack bowls available and cakes and you can order from a local takeaway in the evening but it will be lovely when they serve food in house to have that option also.

I love coming to the Board House. Great selection of games and drinks - food is a bit of a let down , no nice cakes and a selection board of snacks would be good. you could do a sweet selection with things like M&M’s, marshmallows, haribo etc and a savoury selection with crisps and cheese and cheddar biscuits for example. Or a mixed selection. Would be nice to have something to nibble whilst playing

We loved playing at The Board House. The decor is great and there's a nice, chill atmosphere (until we started a rowdy game of Taco Cat Goat Cheese Pizza!). The choice of games is brilliant and the two-hour minimum makes perfect sense. The only problem is the lack of food choices and the pre-wrapped cakes were far too sweet and sugary. It would be great to have a little more choice, maybe some savoury toasties or toasted tea cakes or other less sugary options. You can order in burgers and that's great. All in all a fab experience. We'll definitely go again.

Food 0 as didn't have any there, so cannot comment. Overall experience was good, nice range of games and staff were attentive, polite and available to assist with any game help, if required. Towards the end we did feel like we needed to go as it was just us and a big group who came in and started playing a game with a staff member. Felt we no longer should be there. Drinks were lovely. Would definitely go back again! :)

Only reason for low food score was because no food available due to their baker being ill. Crisps, pretzels and popcorn could be purchased. Excellent choice of games. Really would be an even better venue if they could offer some light cooked snacks.

Second visit table of six. Coffee, drinks and service were good. Last time, there was cakes which were very nice. Only cookies and brownie available this visit, which looked appealing, but unfortunately didn’t taste that great, and on the dry side, the brownie was hard. We didn’t like the way they were served in a packet. We would have preferred ‘home made’ sliced cake, E.g.,Victoria sponge or Red velvet, or moist Chocolate cake. Our table of six were in agreement about the cakes and felt they were disappointing. Looking forward to alternative food offerings. Everything else was good fun and enjoyable.

Would be nice to have some more food choices-even cold food. It works out pretty expensive with the cost of playing games on top so ok for a one off but probably wouldn’t be sustainable fo come regularly when game price is on top.
