I'd game! Though it's true that few people go to the Tuesday & Thursday evening game nights, they're all pretty good players (the older guys, ofc. You do, in fairness, get really young kids who don't really know the rules hanging about).
But yeah, I personally think that Sutton Coldfield workshop has more range of tables/terrain, but I don't really know anyone there, personally. Now, Birmingham on the other hand...
