“Not even any chalk!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

We played pool. After asking us whether we had brought our own cues, the man fetched 1 cue for us, saying it was the only one they had (there were still 4 or 5 more tables free at this point, but I'm not sure whether they had reserved other cues for those tables).

We noticed that one of the yellow balls was a slightly different colour, so it wasn't a matching set - it was probably the same weight and size as the rest, but it didn't give us a good impression.

Then once we got going, we looked for the chalk in the ball tray and there wasn't one, so I went to ask for one, and was told that there wasn't any. So we had to play the whole time with no chalk, which is pretty poor isn't it? There was no indication on the website that we would need to bring anything.

Another problem with the website was that it gave two phone numbers, neither of which worked when we tried to phone in advance (we got the 'number does not exist' type message.

The atmosphere at the place was ok, but there wasn't really enough space between some of the tables.

Would not go again.
