Always such a lush was to spend an evening!! The staff are super nice and they have delish vegan options for the hippy in you. Plus the game will make you laugh and your belly shake like a bowlful or jelly. 10s all round!

We were a party of 6, one of which had already visited Board and recommended it. Staff were great; but very busy as, with just 2 front of house, they couldn't be taking orders for food and drinks as well as helping with game questions....More

Hello Liptonite, and thank you for the review. Your instincts were right — we were unfortunately short-staffed this previous Saturday the 10th, which I believe was the day your group came in. This was due to a scheduling misunderstanding among the team. I’m saddened that...More
