Patriot Games: what do users think?

Samantha Calvey: Absolutely love patriot games - have been here just to have a browse/get some advice on games, have visited the cafe and also played some games in the larger area. We've also recently realised they're dog friendly which means when my partner and I are on a dog walk, we don't have to make someone wait outside.The staff are always really lovely and they're happy to answer any questions you have about any games and make recommendations if you need them.I would highly recommend to anyone interested in any board games/rpgs!

mauro demicheli: Nice and friendly staff, there is a very wide selection of reasonably priced games and accessories. Plus it also has a game café so you could try some of the games in their library before committing. My favourite board game shop!

Kara Ilsley: Quite an extensive range of board games from fast and affordable party-type games to large-box games for the more seasoned board gamer.Offers a variety of events throughout the week.

Abbie Deleval: Wonderful staff and great communities

John Wood: Extremely friendly and helpful place.Staff go above and beyond to help people and are understanding to their customers needs.Stocks all the latest Board games, TCG, Miniatures and D&D stuff.Absolutely fantastic café and seating area inside.

Michealgrubb23 John: Great place to goVery nice staff and helpful staff in the tournament room definitely will go again

Kate Wood: Really good game selection and theres always groups and games going on, especially at the weekend.And TTRPG, Warhammer or MtG fans will be happy too.And an amazing cafe, delicious food.

Adrián Armas: Place is great. Loads of tables and a big space. No need to pay to book a table. There is a café, toilets and a good selection of TCG, Warhammer, and everything you will expect of a shop of this kind.

Dex McHenry: cafe does a good mix of hot and cold snacks as well as tea and coffee. Plenty of niches for different gaming interests. Just dropping a star as it was quite cold in the venue but also noisy in places.

Matthew Allen: Awesome hobby store. Large store with tons of activities every day

Kai: Excellent staff, products, gaming experience and a great cafe

J Baldwin: My home away from home, it's a wonderful place in which there is a real emphasis on promoting the games played there and the communities within the games. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff.

Mirko Paul: Good shop with everything a trading card games heart needs.

Alice Boot: .You name the TCG they probably have it and an event for it. They keep their socials up to date with whats happening and when and always answer any questions people have.---So an update from my previous, the game hall still gets warm but theres air con or something in there now, and depending where youre sat you may need to catch your cards when it first kicks in :p---Updating again, my gods does it get cold! Take a hoodie, youll need it!---Got asked to update, theyre still an amazing bunch, hall still gets cold as its winter, but meh - its an old warehouse, theyre doing all they can.Queer friendly, disability friendly, everything friendly that isnt hateful. Good beans!

gareth sleightholme: Great selection of books and products across a big range of TtRPGs, and always vibrant and full of ongoing games. Great to see a place like this so busy.

Wargames Emporium: what do users think?

Duke Six: Popped in this great little shop again while visiting family in Sheffield. Great selection, very helpful.I always try to support the small gaming shops, and with their cheaper prices and saving on postage definitely a no-brainer. Will be back in May!

Nick: Nice cosey little shop, has moved from top floor to next one down, good selection of gaming materials, kits, paints ect. Got exactly what I needed and the price is good too. Will definitely be back.

Jack “Jtrainshaw” Shaw: Nice shop

Lewis Kay: A proper wargames hobby shop.

Robert Truswell: I've been regularly buying miniatures and gaming supplies from this shop for the past eight years, I highly recommend visiting! In my opinion, it has the best stock variety of any tabletop gaming shop in Sheffield, having loads of minis and rulebooks for 40K, Bolt Action, Flames of War, and many other more obscure games! If you pre-book, you can even game there! Just keep in mind that the staff tend to be reserved and shy, just give them a friendly 'hello' and they'll be happy to have a conversation!

Ashley Hall: The shop is up a couple of stairs. Good selection of different models. Cars, tanks, wargaming miniatures.

Dominic Skelton: Always helpful and friendly. Worth tackling the stairs for....

William Attaway: Great staff, great prices and a proper sense of community

Carl Tommo: Nice store, lots of various games, some that are hard to find. Some second hand stuff too.

Winter Make: Wargames Emporium have an excellent range of stock all at a reasonable price, oftentimes cheaper than many online exclusive retailers. A huge selection of different paints, books and miniatures from many different brands and manufacturers, and with friendly, helpful staff who are quick to help with any questions or issues. All in all one of the best hobby stores I've done business with. A high standard which all friendly small business should strive to meet.

Michael Heng: Excellent with a good choice of figures and paints and rules etc. Been there since just after orchard square opened about 20 years ago or so... Also has online presence. Good location in the centre of town, but difficult to find unless you know where it.

Chris: I live in Harrogate but work in Sheffield every now and then and always make sure to take the time out to go in and enjoy the store.Much love from a fellow nerd 3

The Treehouse Board Game Café: what do users think?

Rhiannon Bright Parry: Really impressed with this place. It was busy but really well organised and not overwhelming, with a really nice atmosphere. The staff were great, recommending some games from the massive selection and even taking the time to explain how to play when we needed it. I'm told by people who were drinking that the selection of beers is good, but I can confirm from experience that the food is excellent, a little pricey but well worth it.I went on crutches this time, but the whole place seemed wheelchair accessible, including the accessible loo on the ground floor. Might be a bit tight getting to some of the tables, and the door at the front entrance is really heavy, I would have needed help opening it in my chair, otherwise great.Vegetarian options: A great selection of clearly labelled veggie and vegan options, and all of the ones we tried were generous and delicious.Wheelchair accessibility: The whole place seemed wheelchair accessible, including the accessible loo on the ground floor which is also the baby changing room. Might be a bit tight getting to some of the tables, and the door at the front entrance is really heavy, I would have needed help opening it in my chair, otherwise great. I would recommend letting the café know you're in a wheelchair when booking a table.

Zeina: Really cool place to hang out with so many games available to choose from and lots of food/snack options

Josh Walsh: Best board game cafe about. Super helpful staff and great foodVegetarian options: Fairly good choice of vegetarian optionsDietary restrictions: Gluten free and vegetarian optionsKid-friendliness: Plenty of things for children to get involved withWheelchair accessibility: Wheelchair access and parking close by

Wren Grace: Ordered an item I couldn't find anywhere else in the UK, and it was delivered promptly and well-packaged. Thank you!

Ian Powell: Fantastic all round.Wide selection of games, the staff members are all extremely knowledgeable and can provide demos on the spot!They have a rotating board of some of the greatest beers and cider, and a wide range of snacks, food and drinks brought right to the table.We visit regularly and plan to do so indefinitely. Thanks to everyone at Treehouse for a great time!
