When I first met my ex-wife, she had a part time job in a pub that had an octagonal pool table in the corner of the bar.... that was up in Eynsford in Kent, I think the pub was called the Malt Shovel and was on the high street overlooking the river. ???
It certainly made the game more interesting than playing on a standard pool table.... ;D

this is what I lodged on Beer In The Evening a while back:
Tantalizingly, found this place on the last night of our holiday (pre-2000). At the time, I rated it one of the best places I had ever visited. Returning a couple of years later, the bar billiards had been replaced with a revolving pool table, but the atmosphere was still great. Report this for removal tommo5 - 1 Aug 2011 20:58
