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

Really lovely owners with lots of knowledge and good at explaining what to do with unfamiliar games. Only thing I felt wasn't great was one table of lads was swearing loudly. I was with a child and it made me feel slightly awkward.

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.

We had a great afternoon playing games and learning new ones. The owner was very friendly and she kept us supplied with snacks and drinks, and helped recommend games. She made a great choice and we loved it. We will definitely be going back

The experience was amazing and the staff were even better, he was very kind and gave excellent service, my only negative was the milkshakes, although tasting delicious, we're what I feel is slightly overpriced for the quantity given but everything else makes up for it and I will be going again!

My friends and I booked a table for a few hours on Saturday night. We arrived and the place was full and busy, and our table had been reserved for us. Definitely glad we booked! We had milkshakes, mine was the Oreo one and it was amazing

I have now been twice just this week. Staff really friendly and approachable, happy to help you chose a game if your not sure and explain the rules if you need help. The cakes and milkshakes were selicoous. 10/10 experience, already planning next visit.

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.
