Time Out says
If the phrase 'Let's play Seven Wonders' means more to you than a Fleetwood Mac-related DJ request then you're going to be pretty darn excited at the prospect of Draughts, a bar and café with more than 500 board games available to play at customers' leisure. Entry is £5 per person, but that buys you unlimited play and, crucially, the help of a 'game guru', who'll offer guidance on which will suit your group best and how the rules work. The library includes everything from Articulate and Cranium to newer (and more complex) classics Carcassonne and Pandemic. Food, craft beer, ale, cider and wine are on sale all day.

I went there on a rainy Saturday afternoon, and had a great time. From the familiar to the unknown, you can pick any board game you want. Staff is always available to explain you any game you wouldn't know, and there are so many games that you wonder how they can know all of them. It gets busy on weekends and the square woody chairs are not so comfortable...
if you want to discover new games, this is the place, but it will never replace a board game moment at home with family or friends.
I love to go here mainly because I love boarding games, I've been here multiple times and always had a lot of fun, both with friends and work colleagues. The staff is very helpful with suggestion about games to play and to help you understand the rules quickly.
They could improve the service and the food that are quite average. It's difficult to get their attention, the food is overpriced for what it is.
I am in love with this place, if you like cool staff and a cool atmosphere to go with it, this is the place for you. The staff are pretty attentive which i love and there are literally hundreds of board games to choose from. If you have a little nerd in you then this place is perfect! I went with my best-friend and we stayed here for hours!
Avoid Avoid Avoid! We had a really bad experience at Draughts and I'm really disappointed to have taken my friends there. We waited for over an hour for our food and weren't given any updates on when it would arrive even after enquiring several times. We waited until after our (very delayed) dinner to start playing board games, and the three games we tried to play all had pieces missing or no instructions which was really frustrating as we arrived in a big group and deciding on games wasn't that easy. When we asked for the bill and complained about the wait and the incomplete games, the management "generously" offered to take a whole £5 off our £150 bill - when we argued this further, the manager basically threw us out. Such a shame, as I had already planned on spending my birthday here but won't ever be back after the terrible experience we had.
