“Whether it’s for the ultimate kid’s birthday party, a fun, family gaming session, or a pizza fueled, grown-ups gaming get-together, they can provide all your gaming party needs in our safe and friendly space, above WOODFIRED, a first-class Pizza and Burger restaurant.
We have the HTC Vive and Playstation VR as well as a growing library of next and older generation consoles and games, catering for casual as well as hardcore gamers.”
Once a month they run a pop up retro gaming night in the restaurant and bar. This month a few Welsh Gaming Network members went along to check it out.

The venue itself is Woodfired Pizza Kitchen – located in the heart of Merthyr town. The food is great and it’s a licensed bar so you can enjoy a beer while you play.
There were about a dozen retro systems available, from the Sega Master System through to the PS1 and 2. An emulator running a large number of games was also a big hit.
The biggest hit of the night was Guitar Hero 2 on the Wii, which saw gamers young and old taking turns to show off their inner Rock God!
In conclusion – highly recommended! It’s a perfect place where you can have a beer, enjoy some delicious food and watch/play the old classics with your kids. A fantastic family night!
The next event is a special event for Halloween where they’ll also have their VR systems setup with some horror games. See you there!
