Having read the other reviews I was aware that this store sold Warhammer models and the like but one of the reviews said that the store catered for roleplay. This was not in evidence when I visited and the staff never inquired to see if they could help us. They weren't exactly busy. I don't think I will bother with a return visit.

We are very sorry that you couldn't find what you were looking for when you visited.

We have a shelf of RPG books (currently: Pathfinder, Dark heresy, Starwars, and some others. These may vary depending on time of year. etc.)

Our staff attempt to not disturb customers, as feedback has told us that the public in general prefer it. (Normally with references to the pushier nature of GamesWorkshop stores.) We do however try to say hello, and ask if you need help. So I apologise if that was omitted on your visit.

Please be assured that if you were to have asked us for help, we would have been glad to have aided you.

The shop is well laid out and well stocked. The owner and staff are so friendly and helpful with advice on the products from how you would use something in a game to painting advice. The advice is given without any pressure and in a really enthusiastic and articulate manner. Ignore the poor review. I don't see any credibility in the statements made there in fact to the contrary my son had taken his warhammer army and didnt have anyone to play against and the shop staff played a game with him on the spot. Its exactly the opposite of games workshop who have set times and ways of doing things which makes Games workshop quite synthetic as opposed to an independent retailer like this who are so passionate about the products that they sell. Highly recommended.
