As promised, Margo and I carried out our plan to stop off for lunch on our way to Norfolk at a pub participating in the Cambridge League.
This time our chosen venue was the White Horse, which faces onto one side of the very charming Market Square of Swavesey.
They had sold their last of the jacket potatoes, but sustenance was found in the form of cheese toasties and a couple of halves of Strongbow (non-watered down).
A very nicely-maintained Jelkes table was there, demanding to be played, and it is a very forgiving table to play, easy to get the balls back again after the initial mistake of not playing the break thickly enough. As with the Nelson's Head, ball needs to be on the left hand side of the D to get the splitshot.
Only slight criticism is that the table is hard against a wall, rendering impossible any shots to the right-hand 50 off the cushion - or the last 200 shot on that side.
All in all a very nice pub with friendly bar staff. 8-)
Well, margo did actually, as I "did a Bernie Lawrance" with the last shot to the 200. You know the sort of thing, playing the ball of the chalk with the butt end of the cue, blindfolded and with one arm tied behind the back. ;) ;D
