The setting was very loud which made it difficult to play the games. For the entry fee we could have just bought a game to play at home. Drinks and food were expensive for what they were. That said, I've spent more on entry to...More

Great afternoon playing games, the 4 hours fly by. The only downside is getting a table in the first place, as it was a 1.5-hour wait and you have to wait in the cafe - it would be better if you could leave a deposit...More

We've visited Draughts quite a few times for birthdays, with friends etc. and always had a good experience. The staff are helpful, and a few have helped us learn new board games. Their food and drinks menu is great, and we love the craft beer....More

Heavy snow in London so we went to our back up plan of Draughts. Neither of us had been before and it was really quiet midweek day time. The lady who seated us was really friendly and helped us find a couples board game. She...More

The 5 pounds to sit down is fine. We asked for advice and got a vague "games for 2 are over there" answer. Not very helpful, but still fine. The 5th time we were approached to buy more beer or snacks we started getting annoyed....More

Yes I would, especially if you want a table for 4 or more people. A couple of tables for 2 are usually available even if you arrive later, but they are small and gaming on those tends to be troublesome.
