Due to our client needing the table gone quick we have negotiated what we thing is a good COME AND GET ME PRICE of just £400
A 10ft x 5ft table , you may wish to have the bag nets changed to rail nets and rails and new leathers fitted .
the price is for the table with all accessories as it stands , buyer to arrange removal and within the next 3 to 4 weeks time scale maximum .
House sale has forced this quick sale price so don’t hang around if you are in the market for a 10ft .
first come first served as they say .
You are looking ideally for a room size of 20ft by 15 ft to fit this table in with comfortable full size cue room all around
but a little smaller room and you can get away with say a small cue for a cushion shot .
the table is situated between Braintree and Colchester . in Essex .
list of accessories as in email .

My work today was to travel to Oxfordshire to dismantle a very nice looking Burroughs and watts oak table
with tournament steel cushions , bubble wrap all parts and store in outbuilding on the Estate of this very large country house .
I see some very nice houses on my travels and this one is up there with the best .
our client wishes to sell the table so we are putting it out to tender to see what interest we can get .
I can give a guidance to value based on my report on the dismantle and from the photo’s I took on dismantle .
a very nice golden oak woodwork of quarter sawn English oak .
superb presence when you look at this table it oozes that rich quality of a well made English oak table
and has the period style bag nets and dark leathers fitted .
the much sought after steel cushions are fitted to this table and the rolls Royce of English Billiards of Burroughs and watts
I would say this table is circa 1920s /30s and has the Rigidus framework or cross bearers to keep the slate supported along the joints .
that is why on a rigidus frames the centre legs are closer together , rather than equal spacings with outer corner legs .
Five Welsh thick 2 inch slates , they do not make slates this good today .
you cannot get any better than Welsh and Irish slate beds on Billiards and snooker tables .
Modern repro scoreboard which has some damage to the slide slot .
also a modern repro cue rack that revolves .
there is a set of long rest and cue , plus three rests and around 4 or 5 cues .
there may also be a choice of lighting to go with this table by negotiation .
in an art deco style of chrome and smaller oblong shades .
there are few small wood parts that have a crack or two in the table , one being on centre pocket , you may have to have spliced a new bit in .
also some of the lower end arch mouldings are slightly damaged and one centre arch is cracked and need gluing .
I like to describe a true scenario for anyone to confidently buy the table that there is no more to say about the table that would devalue it .
this table would look good in a large Country home or a con verted farm barn , where oak is the dominating facture to the décor .
the pockets are a bit tight but if you had a re-cloth in a cloth of choice , then why not have some of the rubber sanded away for an easier game .
after all we are not all professional players , and these pocket openings are very tight at the moment some only 3 and 1/4 inch at the fall , which is very tight .
please note table has been dismantled and placed in storage in a bubble wrapped form
it cannot now be viewed , but the photos show it as it was on the day of packing . 19th June 2021 .
I know what a top end Billiards firm would retail this table at , and what a private sale would sell it at in its current condition .
if this was an ordinary table it would not be worth much , it is our job at GCL billiards to find some middle ground for Buyer and seller
the table is not going to be top dollar , but it is not a run of the mill low cost table so expect somewhere in the middle of retail and low price .
the table is not up for a quick sale , our clients have plenty of storage space , and are happy to sit on it for a while .
so please do try and keep your offers, to a reasonable price that reflects the build quality , the fact these tables do not come up for sale often at private prices , as the trade snaps them up and put them back on the market at high prices .
now is your opportunity to get in before the trade , if those large billiard houses get hold of these type of tables then expect much higher prices .
our seller also will and does take into account the cost of collecting and fitting a table . but our client also knows of the history of B & Watts and the type and quality of build of the table they own .

I have one left for sale , brand new Supreme Winner pool tables 7ft x4ft external measurements
Currently up to 20 WEEK Waiting list from Factory .
Black pearl cabinet and Green Strachan cloth .
You will have to be quick to snap this one up as they are very rare to be in stock at any of the Firms .
most firms are now operating on a orders scheme some people having to wait until 20 weeks have gone by .
I bought 6 tables for my Rental side of the business , and decided to let three be sold , two have already been collected or delivered , this is the last one
after this it will be a 8 to 20 weeks waiting period before I get anymore for sale in stock .
I ordered a 6ft Supreme / Gatley classic dining version from the Supreme Factory the other week for myself , and I have to wait until January 2022 for that ! more than 30 weeks away from order …and I am trade so no favoritism or jumping the waiting list .
I normally order my tables in three’s and fetch them myself as you can see from above photo .
in these covid times , of garden bars and converted garages , new tables are hard to buy and get them in stock
and second hand versions of the Winner tables are fetching almost new prices now .
and you will be amazed at what people pay for a 15 year old Winner ! so why buy S/Hand …buy new .
Note that the new badge on Supreme winners have a dark blue grey background now ,
the table brand new I have in stock is identical to this table with the new blue grey badge , apart from the cloth being Green .
it is mechanical coin operated with cue ball separators channel to Baulk line end . solid metal chrome corners not chrome plastic , and metal trims behind the cushions again not the old balck plastic . in the very sort after Black pearl cabinet .
Very hard to get hold of in stock .
I have one in stock and ready to go for £1599 no vat .
Beat the Queue , ready to go and delivered local free of charge to pavement or driveway , add £99 if you wish to have unloaded and set up . £50 set up fee if you assist ( Ground floor only )
I also have three brand new ones for rental contracts if you want the best Rental deal going ,
which includes 2 re-cloths a year every 6 months in Hainsworth match cloths after initial 6 months on Strachan .
If you see any new tables with the old Green badge on them , then they are old stock .
My stock is the latest version and 2021 tables .
older Green badge
I use the best levels to level tables , so the set up fee is recommended .
some things to look out for ,
solid metal corners replaced the older plastic chrome type a few years ago .
also the trim behind the cushion is an alloy brushed metal trim not black plastic like the older ones
the black pearl cabinet finish replaced the black ash finish .
please contact Geoff or Carol Large at GCL billiards for further information .

These Riley steel cushioned match tables sell very quick and at reasonable prices compared to new price .
We have a client near Birmingham , who wishes to sell their very nice renovated Riley Aristocrat
Full match spec including very expensive slate pad heaters and all accessories .
The table will work out at about £4000 with fitting to ground floor only , re-using original bed cloth back on .
HUGE saving on new price for one of these now at around £15000 .
there will be a miles charge of 50p per mile EXTRA , and if a two day job extra for 2nd day and BB if required due to distance ,
it all depends how close you live to Birmingham and Nottingham .
you will be saving around £9000 from buying a new table from Riley’s
as you can see from this photo of the Riley Aristocrat Match table when it was set up , the cushions are Match play steel cushions
the legs and arches are Silver match colour from those classic lines of the Aristocrat when it was used to TV tournaments .
Table when it was finished for our client , the cloth is in pretty good order , but if you wished to have a new cloth fitted we could price that up too ( as an EXTRA )
an illness to a family member has forced the sale , and this is a very reluctant sale , our client got rid of a Star table for this one , like myself he rates the Riley Aristocrat as the better table .
A superb table that in this condition and price does not come onto the market often as a package that includes fitting at this price .
I only get these tables come up now and again for sale as Private direct sales , this was the last one I did .
from North wales to Nottingham and it cost a fair bit more than the silver legged one .
I have put an all in price which is a rough figure it all depends how far away you live and we must stress only Ground floor fitting will be accommodated no stair work .
If you are in the market for a full size riley steel cushioned match play aristocrat then save a huge amount of money and buy this one .
You will not regret it .
Our client has had very expensive heat pads as used by professional fitted to this table , we will take these off for transport , but must stress you must have a fully qualified electrician to fit them to the table we suggest using the same firm that supplies them .
We cannot fit any electrical item as we are not insured , you need to be a part P electrician qualified to fit electrical items like these .
Please no offers on this table , our client is selling at a very competitive price for these much sought after MATCH SPEC tables .
an iron is included in the price and these alone are an expensive item .
if you are interested in purchasing the table at this great offer price , contact Geoff or Carol by email if possible to
please note the table is a Private sale direct from our selling client , we charge a £35 admin fee to arrange to sale to both parties , the buyer and the seller .
this to cover our time and effort in the advert and the passing on of details to and from seller to buyer , and the odd phone call arranging delivery and so forth .
We have a client who has a very nice serpentine snooker diner for sale approx. 7ft playing surface .
larger area for dining off .
The Table is based on ground floor in Calverton just North of Nottingham .
As you can see less than 100 hours of use and in excellent condition
4 sections of polished wood tops complete the diner and are in excellent condition
and for the £400 asking price some one is going to get a Bargain .
The table is a dual height , having two hinged beams at each aide , lift up side of table and push beam up on hinge and repeat on other side to raise , , the reverse to lower .
a simple no sticking method of operation but it is a two man job to perform , unlike the click clack system of the riley diners , which do tend to stick now and again .
the riley diner click clack is the most used and this beam hinge system is a close second .
the only benefit of the riley is the one man operation and the adjustable leveling on the bracket to level .
this table will have to be leveled at the base of each leg on this serpentine table .
Buyer to arrange pick up dismantle .
GCL billiards could quote for this dismantle deliver and set up .
email for more details and quote for relocating .

where older billiard tables spit balls back off the pockets , these tables tend to play very well .
Not that you should slam every ball into a pocket .
