[I believe this was our frist trip for snooker. They had some American Pool tables in the reception area which was much easier to play. The huge array of full-size tables in the main area looked great, but when we played the holes seemed tiny and far away. We had a job to pot any ball unless it was placed near the hole! Great fun evening though, and one which we will certainly repeat again. January 2015]
