Wapping Tavern

Converted warehouse pub Wapping Tavern is one cool spot to play pool in London, thanks to its 17 TV screens for watching the sport and a downstairs games room. When you're not potting balls? Play ping pong, shuffleboard, smart darts or retro arcade games.

The Shacklewell Arms

If you find yourself in Dalston and have a craving to play a game of pool, head over to The Shacklewell Arms. Play a game or two while sipping on one of their delicious drinks, then maybe even catch some live music in their back room after.

The Heathcote and Star

Not just a lovingly restored East End boozer, also a neighbourhood gem, The Heathcote and Star is bringing all sorts of fun to Leyton. Whether it's a casual date night or catch up with your mates, the pub has games, craft beer and hearty dinner plates.


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.
