    Welcomed at the front door with a beautiful smile. Staff extremely friendly with us as well as their colleagues. I have a strong belief that it is a great place to work. We ordered pizzas and they were absolutely delicious. We ordered large as we wanted to take some home for lunch the next day oops that didn’t happen

    Went for a birthday party, it was really fun and my friends and I enjoyed the environment, staff and game. We played Girls Night and Cards against humanity.

    We arrived at Guild for our booking. When they showed us our table, we requested something that had a bit more room between tables (they had people seated about 1m apart from each other) I have a compromised immune system, so we asked to change our table. We were told that there was nowhere else for us and that was the only table free (it was infact only half full) The staff member was extremely rude to us. Due to this we left, and probably wouldn't go back. We were celebrating an anniversary, so that wasn't the best experience ever.

    I really enjoyed this place, the service was excellent and the food was delicious. The variety in both board and card games was great, although some members of my party were worried of the cleanliness and condition of some of the cards. Overall, would recommend.

    We ate at Guild before a show and so had to be out by a particular time. Overall it was a good experience however they were definitely short staffed and so we had to wait longer than we had hope which was a bit stressful. Only negative was two pizzas which came to us with very little cheese - they were Margherita pizzas so little cheese is basically just a tomato base, when cut there were some slices without any cheese on them at all. If we were not short of time I would have sent them back. To be fair the pizza maker was running it solo and very busy so it was not her fault as much as an issue with the overall lack of helpers. The pasta, chicken and seafood dishes we had were very good.

    Went for our anniversary dinner and had a great night. The food was fantastic, drinks were great and the owmers stopped by to say hi and checked in with us throughout the course of our meal and games. There is a great range of games on offer. We were running late for our reservation but called ahead to let them know and they were wonderfully understanding. We will definitely be back many times.

    Great central location and atmosphere with the games. Unfortunately the pizzas aren’t worth the money, little to no toppings on a good size base. Not worth the money considering there’s more toppings on a $5 Dominoes pizza. The atmosphere and location deserves a better value for money pizza

    A great concept where you play board games over dinner. They have thought through the little details (eg the two circles on the menu are the actual two sizes of pizzas). Everyone at every table was engrossed in conversation and game play … not a mobile phone to be seen (except for photo taking). Great night out for the family or for a group of friends.

    Our third attempt with this restaurant. This time one pizza arrived and was finished before my husband received his. Then they tried to charge for playing one of their board games after we were already leaving just paying for the one pizza. Bad service and coordination.

    We took a group of 12 hungry 16 year olds for a birthday party whilst us parents sat at a separate table at a suitable distance away. They had a great night. We had a great night. Staff were really lovely. Food was yummy. It was great watching everyone having fun with the games. Lots of laughter. A great experience in the cold of a Canberra winter.

    I go here for a fun night out of the house with friends. Staff are very helpful, patrons are friendly and diverse, and the vibe is good. The food is ok; nothing super-special but wood fired pizzas are hard to mess up! You don’t feel guilty spending 1-2 hours playing games over drinks and snacks and I can take the family and we all find something to play.

    Appalling customer service. 1. Ordered a Pimms Jug, received just ginger ale without any fuit. When trying to rectify, it took 3 attempts, ending in us going up to the bar ourselves. 2. 1 pizza arrived without specified addition. They took the pizza away and we saw it sitting on the bench for 5 minutes before fixing it and returning it cold. 3. Plates arrived 15 minutes after pizza (even after asking for them). Salad arrived 20 minutes after the pizza. They were not overly busy, and they seemed irritated to help us fix the problems.

    The food was very nice, but the gap between or table and the one next to us we about 15cm so we felt like we were eating with another couple. It wasn't a crowded night so I think patrons could have been spaced out a little better. We were a little concerned to see the cutlery and serviettes sitting in a cutlery holder on the table, we felt this was not Covid friendly practise and were reluctant to use the cutlery- lucky we had pizza so didn't need to. Our drinks took a long time to come and we had one meal delivered well ahead of the other.
