Antique Pool Tables

We have several antique pool tables in stock, in various sizes, to suit any games room.

Many of our snooker/ billiards tables are also suitable for use as a pool table.

All of our pool tables are carefully French polished by hand, and prices include a starter kit of cues, balls, chalk and a triangle.

Please ask if you need advice on choosing the correct table size to suit your room.

Pool Table Options

Polishing: we always consult with the customer, and polish the woodwork to your requirements.  We provide free colour samples so that you can choose the correct wood colour at home.

Cloth colour: this never has to be boring! A wide range of colours is available, again, we will provide samples, and we can arrange for custom prints, and designs to be printed on request. If you prefer a traditional green, we can do that too.

Pockets & Nets : We replace old/broken leather pockets and nets.  We can ‘age’ the new pockets and nets to look antique.  Alternatively, we can add games rails to your pool table.

Size: Various sizes of pool table are always available. Please visit our Antique Pool Tables page to see our current stock.

Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your requirements. We are always happy to source your ideal table if we don’t have one in stock.
