Our Story

Our Story

Welcome to The Games Room Company

We are a family-owned business run by husband and wife team, Alexander & Olivia Walder-Smith. Alexander has had over 25 years’ experience in the gaming and music industry (formerly running his family’s commercial games business), while Creative Director Olivia was a protégé of Chester Jones, the renowned London Interior Designer. Alexander has used his experience to diversify the company’s main activity to manufacturing and supplying vintage and contemporary games. Our long history has placed us uniquely as specialists in the rare and whimsical with a keen eye on quality and service.

Our company was founded in 1962 but our history stretches back to just after the Second World War. Shortly after its end, Alexander’s father Reginald started dealing with the United States Air force by supplying pool tables, gaming machines, jukeboxes and Coke machines to their military bases in Great Britain. From there, Reginald created a prosperous games and music business that became the major supplier to public houses owned by traditional family breweries like Courage, Young’s, Fuller Smith and Turner, Greene King, Hall and Woodhouse and many others.

When Alexander took over pubs were moving towards screen-based entertainment and he was quick to see the writing on the wall, swiftly steering the company towards a very different sort of clientele.Today, we work internationally and list many interior designers, CEOs, and celebrities among our clients, many of whom are seeking the kind of high end bespoke pieces which have become the company’s trademark.

A free consultation and planning service comes as standard, so whether it’s a games area for a hotel or simply a pool table for a back room, why not take advantage of our experience to see what can be achieved?

We regularly take on commissions from hotel groups, offices and communal work spaces, and we are a favoured supplier to the hospitality industry, both at home and around the world. Much of our business comes from referrals and we like to think that this tells its own story. We see ourselves very much as a centre of excellence, where specialised craftsmen and technicians come together under one roof with their individual skill sets to help keep the past alive.

We want to be different

We are passionate about quality and service so everything we sell is covered by a one-year parts & labour warranty anywhere in the UK. If your product develops a fault within a year of purchase, our qualified technicians will identify and repair the problem free of charge. We don’t use sub-contractors or outside assistance, preferring instead to use our own internally trained staff. Our showroom also houses our own workshop, so we can be sure that the job is done properly. This service is extended to our international customers and we only ask for a contribution towards our airline and travel costs.
