    Food not of a high quality definitely not worth $22 for the cheese burger which was highly overpriced and poor quality chips that were burnt and looked like tiny off cuts. Had to prompt staff for a ordered beer with response ‘don’t know how that got missed’. Poor sound very loud cannot hear game session. Chairs not comfortable. Overall will not be recommending The Lost Dice to friends or family who play board games and role playing games. Staff not friendly when ordering. Overall dissatisfied and will not return.

    A great little place to play games. The food was delicious (I had the homemade pie & sticky date pudding) and cocktails perfectly made (espresso martini & negroni) and the atmosphere was of a lot of people enjoying games with their friends! The only drawback to the place is the small tables - you have room either to eat or play board games, not really both at the same time. Though if you are playing card based games its perfectly fine.

    Was not told that the kitchen was to close early due to the cook being tired until it was too late to order food for one of our group, which was disappointing. We were told at 8am that kitchen was closed but website said it closed at 8:45. One of our group had ordered a starter with the intention to order a main later in the evening but was too late as kitchen closed early.

    I think a lot of 5 star reviews are handed out too easy these days, but Lost Dice is top end of 5 stars. Easy to book, great atmosphere and the staff are next level. We got assistance setting up board games and our large party was well looked after. Our group will book in again later in the year for another catch up.

    Had a really enjoyable evening. Staff were super helpful and patiently taught us how to play a game new to all of us. Good selection of games. Food was good: Pulled pork bun was tasty and my salad was fresh with a nice dressing. Good selection of drinks, including a locally breed nonalcoholic beer, which was pretty good. Only one minor suggestion: maybe a higher barrier between the booths as, when you are next to another group, you are all head height and very close, and it gets a bit distracting and impact's on the conversation. Will definitely go back to try more games. Had a really fun evening!

    The main lady who served us was amazing! So thoughtful and attentive. The QR ordering is the only thing I think needs changing- it’s cumbersome and often doesn’t work. Apart from that, The Lost Dice is great!

    pretty bland I had the chicken pie with no flavour. Service was very slow waited nearly 30 mins to get our drinks and nearly an hour for the food. chips were cold and again not salt bland. They said they were having trouble with the wifi so maybe that is why it was so slow. The tables are quite small we had to move tables to play the game. suggestion ask for a bigger table. We would go back and try it again as it's a great concept I just think they were having a few hassles the day we were there.
