I just came across them when searching for some games on Google and they seem to have cheap prices and free postage to the UK but very little detail about who or where they are.
Has anyone used them and were they any good?

I would hesitate as you have done about ordering until I had heard some feedback.

I'd also be interested to hear from anyone with any experience with them.

Haven't dealt with them before, but seeing as they offer PayPal as a method of payment, I would say it is pretty safe to order from them. I things go wrong, you could always rely on paypal's dispute resolution centre to get a refund.

Yep, I ordered Thunderstone Advance from then a few weeks back.

They kept coming up in Google as the cheapest shipped price and then on day of release (actually I think it was before) they had the Avatar mini expansion added to the next couple of orders, which for me swung the deal.

I selected the lesser delivery option and had it sent to my work address. It was sent first class and landed on my desk on the Saturday the very next day!

I was a little unsure about the packaging as it was just brown paper around the box, however they had cut box corners to protect the actual corners and had corrugated card around all sides. It was in perfect condition. I have received games in boxes in worse condition.

Certainly I was very happy with my first order with them.

I ordered Runebound off them just last week and it arrived in a couple of days. I had also asked them about some of the expansions (Isle of Dread) and they were quick in replying. Mine turned up in a box as an aside but with plenty of packing material in it to ward off any knocks, so I guess they now do boxes! I'm certainly going to use them again

I haven't used them recently, but after I posted this thread initially I pre-ordered eclipse through them and it arrived in June and they kept me up to date with when I could expect it with emails.

Has anyone ordered recently from these guys?

I recently did a BGG transaction with them, but no emails since my payment made to confirm etc. In this era of online commerce, you would normally expect some kind of confirmation...
