Bar Billiard Tables

Bar Billiard Tables

We have been supplying and restoring bar billiard tables since 1970 in Maidstone Kent.  We have been manufacturing and servicing all aspects of sports equipment since the cricket ball factory “Alfred Reader & Co.” were founded in 1808.

The Billiard side of the business was founded by “Jack Hubble” (former Kent cricketer) in 1910.  We started with small billiard tables for home use.  The business grew and the range expanded.

Bar Billiard Tables originally called “Russian Bagatelle” originating in France and Northern Europe came to the UK in the 1930s.  The two leading manufacturers being “William Jelks” of Holloway Road, London and “Jeffrey Brothers” of London produced a range of bar billiard tables principally for use in public houses.  They were joined by “Sams Brothers” of Hoddesdon who produced a square leg table which became the mass produced workhorse of the business.  There were numerous competitors namely Thurston, Clare, Padmore, Riley, Burroughes & Watts and various smaller manufacturers.

We pride ourselves on being able to offer a comprehensive selection of the above manufacturer’s Bar Billiard Tables.  We are able to carry out a complete bar billiard table restoration or bar billiard repair to whatever specification our clients request in whatever cloth colour and finish including gilding, spray painted or french polished.

Demand has grown from across the World for our bar billiard tables and we have a specialist packing / crating and freighting facility which we feel is second to none.
