    Thanks Oggy, would be good to confirm this. According to the AEBBA map the nearest known BB tables to Telford are in the Boat Inn in Jackfield and the Pheasant Inn in Bridgnorth.

    I can confirm it is indeed a BB table in the Fighting Cocks a 1940s classic table so i am told , follow the ironbridge brewery link at the bottom of the pubs main page for more info .

    Thanks Oggy, have had it added to the BB site map.

    My researches drew a complete blank, having to knock off lots of BB tables in my local area that no longer existed. Was wondering if I'd end up having to stick to cribbage. Until the other night when I was passing the Cricketers in Thames Ditton (which had become a restaurant then closed down) and found it had not only re-opened as the a proper pub, but had installed a BB table. Particularly pleased to get this one back - it used to be my local, from which I have plenty of happy memories, and a fair few lack of memories, and was where I first learned to play bar billiards twentysomething years ago.

    You can take the Pheasant at Linley Brook , Bridgnorth off the map , the pub is now closed and looks like its going to become a private house .

    Brighton seems to be a hotbed on a recent trip i saw more tables in one day than in my lifetime of drinking also numerous dartboards.

    East Kent used to be a hotspot. Can't say I see 'em much now.
