Welcome to The Treehouse

About Us

The Treehouse is Sheffield's first board game cafe, a friendly, welcoming space for gamers old and new to explore our library of 500+ games, with expert staff on hand to make recommendations and help with the rules.

Alongside the games, we serve a full menu of delicious homemade food, locally-sourced tea and coffee, and a wide range of draught craft beer, wines and spirits.

Find us on Boston Street just outside the city centre off London Road, next door to The Forge student village.

How it works

For those visiting us to play, there is a games cover charge of £5 per person for a four-hour session/ £2.50 for a two-hour session (under 5s are free, under 16s are half price). This provides unlimited access to our library for the duration of your visit, plus support from our staff as needed.

The cover charge applies to everyone in the evening after 7pm and all day at the weekends, which helps to ensure that The Treehouse is always a great environment for gaming. Before 7pm on weekdays we also operate as a regular cafe, with no cover charge for those who would just like a drink or a bite to eat.

We offer a free cover for students and pensioners before 7pm on weekdays (i.e. the part of the session before 7pm is free), and a half price cover for students after 7pm on Wednesdays.

We have a membership scheme for those who visit regularly, which provides a half-price cover charge on every visit, plus 10% off games from our shop and from Patriot Games and Wargames Emporium (our friendly local games shops in Sheffield city centre) for £25 per year.
