took my son in there to try out the new fifa franchise. it was a dismal. would not take him or anyone there ever again i recommend just buying yourself 400 pounds worth of console just so you don't have to sample the scent.

A slice of Geek heaven. Booze and games. A fantastic concept with a pleasant host. It is, as some reviewers mentioned, in need of a bit of a clean. But for me it just adds to the atmosphere!

A place where you can visit and play on old and new computer games for free. There's beer and cider on tap, soft drinks and sweet treats to buy and then you can settle in and play to your heart's content. Great concept, however the...More
