The board restaurant is so much fun! It’s £6 entry fee for 3 hours of games which I think is really reasonable. They have a great selection of games, and the staff are always happy to help out if you need recommendations or any help with the rules of each game.
Food and drink were also great (milkshakes are amazing) but the main great thing about this place is the customer service - everyone I have spoke to on my several visits have been super helpful and friendly. It does get quite busy though so if you can book then do it!

First visit (though we’ve been to other board game cafes)
Really friendly service (I think we were served by a guy called Patrick who was great, super friendly service)
Food was good, freshly cooked cafe staples- burgers, wraps, chips, all tasty and hot. Staff were there to help with game choice if needed but we just sorted ourselves out as knew what we wanted.
We will definitely come back and would recommend to others! Probably a good idea to pre book as not a big place.

Really enjoyed our visit here. The chap running the show was welcoming and knowledgable about the games. He recommended a couple of good games based on my preferences and we enjoyed them. When we got stuck he knew the rules straight away and assisted us to continue. We had lunch while we were there and the food was really tasty and delicious. We even bought a game to take away with us for later. Brilliant place. One small thing - the decor is ready for some investment just to tidy up the wear and tear a little, especially the loo.

I came here with a friend for the first time and COULD NOT STOP LAUGHING. We had such a good time! What a lovely theme and welcoming atmosphere this place has. :-)

They've got a good range of board games (we opened with a modern complicated one, and finished off with a classic match of Guess Who?) and the food was incredible. I couldn't finish all my cheesy chips there were so many, and my friend's Grilled Cheese was bigger than her head.

Don't get me started on the staff either. I am the world's most awkward man and they made us all feel very comfortable. What a bunch of sweeties. We left crushing on them all! I can't wait to go again. :-D

I came here with the University of Exeter Lib dem society as part of a board game social and we all had a great time. There was a wide variety and selction of board games and its good value at £6 for 3 hours admission which works out to £2 an hour. The milkshakes here are also quite good. Dident try the food though since i ate before coming. What would make it better though is if they did a set menu or package where you get admission, meal and a drink for a set price. All in all it was a great visit.

As expected for a board game café, lovely mixture of games to play with food and drinks to accompany. Had adequate covid precautions but did prevent us from looking at the games in order to choose, though a list is available on the website.

Literally awesome. For £6 an adult (at time of review) for 3 hours of seating it's a damn steal. You can pick any game you want and a staff member grabs it for you.

All they ask is to use sanitiser between each game and you can get as many as can fit in the 3 hour time period.

And then you add cocktails and snacks into the mix and it becomes an epic evening.

My only regret is that I don't live closer :'(

What an amazing idea, pick a board game, everything to choose from. You can choose more than one. Play the game, order good hearty bar type food, top quality and good portion sizes and you will have an amazing time. Great service, definitely saved in the favourites.

My partner and I are big board game fans and had to give this place a go during our visit to Exeter.

We had a classic burger each and the bbq pulled pork chips…. Wow those chips were incredible and beat us. The burgers were also excellent.

The staff were the highlight with Amelia providing some brilliant game recommendations and helped with the rules to make the learning curve quicker.

Would absolutely recommend for a couples or family night out.

Recommend Dragonwood for an easy starting game before food 😄
