Our antique furniture stock includes a variety of antique dining tables, including refectory tables, and sets of antique dining chairs, as well as general antique furniture, and architectural antiques including doors.
Prices We have many years’ experience in restoring antique furniture and antique snooker tables. We keep our overheads as low as possible, in order to keep our prices keen. You will deal direct with the restorers here, no salesmen! We are antiques enthusiasts, and do not stock new, reproduction, or modern items.
Restoration All restoration is carefully carried out by hand. We use traditional French polishing techniques, and sympathetically restore each piece. We only replace parts if absolutely necessary. We use natural products , and the best quality materials. We never spray finish. We are an environmentally friendly company, and are delighted to have been awarded a Green Apple Environment Award in 2011.
Our customers We sell to the general public and trade, and provide antique furniture and snooker tables to interior designers. We are passionate about what we do, and like to involve the customer as much as possible. We believe that excellent customer service makes all the difference. For example, when you buy an antique snooker table from us, you can expect to be fully involved in every stage of the restoration process, as we will consult with you and ask your opinion as we restore the table to your requirements.
Waiting list Not all stock appears on our website, as we have a customer waiting list, and some items are sold straightaway. If you are looking for something specific, please do ask to be added to our waiting list and we will contact you when a suitable item comes in. (There is no charge for this service.)
Antique Snooker Tables
We stock antique snooker tables , billiards tables and pool tables. We do not stock modern tables. We have a range of sizes of snooker tables for sale, from 6ft tables to full size (12ft) tables. We specialise in antique snooker diners/antique snooker dining tables, which we stock in sizes 6ft, 7ft, 8ft and 9ft. We have many years’ experience in restoring antique snooker tables and billiards tables for both trade and retail customers, and undertake all restoration ourselves. All our antique snooker tables for sale are sympathetically restored, retaining the character of each individual table. Our French polisher carefully restores the woodwork by hand, using traditional methods, whilst our snooker and billiards technician replaces the bedcloth, re-rubbers and covers the cushions, and replaces pockets and nets. We use 6811 tournament cloth and northern rubber as standard. Any replacement parts are craftsman made locally, we do not use cheap imported parts. We pride ourself on this attention to detail, which cannot be compared with a spray finish.
All our antique snooker tables come with a free ‘starter kit’ consisting of new or good quality used cues, balls, triangle, chalk and rules.
We also stock a wide range of antique snooker and billiards accessories, which includes antique snooker scoreboards, life pool marker boards, antique snooker cue racks, as well as antique snooker and billiards prints and advertisements.
