  8. Will check it out, thanks. ---------- Post added 28-04-2018 at 18:15 ---------- Question remains though, who can think of pubs (other than Shakespeares and The Gardner's Rest) that have or had bar billiards tables in the last few years? There must be one stashed away somewhere!
  9. Cheers, have mailed The Gardeners earlier.
  10. I wonder if some the long standing pub goers on here might be able to help? I'd quite like to get a bar billiards table for the pub and am keen to know if anyone can think of a pub where they used to have one before becoming unfashionable? I.e. they may have one unused and unloved, in storage or rotting away and would possibly be willing to sell? Any condition considered. Cheers!
  11. Thanks for including us, a list we're proud to be a part of. Just so you know though, both The White Lion and The Brothers Arms are both Heineken (Star Pubs and Bars) owned establishments, both previously Punch.
