Golf might be the name of the game (literally) at Plonk, but did you know the Hackney and Shoreditch venues are also home to their very own pool halls? Grab a table or get stuck into a full tournament at these fun spots

People's Park Tavern

Looking for a friendly pub with games in Hackney? Okay so it's not exactly a pool table, but for those wanting to try a cue based game with a little bit of history behind it, playing some games of billiards at the People's Park Tavern should do the trick. Come for a few games in the summertime then head out to their suntrap beer garden on the fringes of Victoria Park.


Lunch Deal and 3 other offers

Based in London's Victoria, Greenwood has drawn in crowds from across London with its offering of great food, ice-cold craft beer and a handful of fun pool tables. The food and drink menu is, of course, the headliner here, but it's the sports bar that's really caught out attention. With pool tables, big screen TVs and all your favourite drinks at the bar, you'll struggle to find a better place to shoot some pool with your mates in London.

Boom Battle Bar Wandsworth

The coolest hangout spot in town, Boom Battle Bar in Wandsworth and Aldgate East is home to pretty much any game you can think of, but if it's American pool your after, you can bet it delivers in that department, too. Book out the table for one whole hour – and don't worry about getting hungry or thirsty during the match, as there's some amazing food and drink on standby. Think pizzas, loaded fries and chicken burgers – with nothing costing over £11. Wash it down with shots, sharers and quirky cocktails from spicy mango margaritas to their signature Boom Punch. Grab six of your closest buds for a smashing game of American pool priced at just £20 per table for an hour-long, colourful, ball-filled bonanza.
