Would recommend the Cellar Bar (about 3 minutes walk east along the front from the Marine View). You can get a good pint in there for a decent value. Don't get me wrong, nought wrong with the Marine View but you can't get a pint of proper beer if thats what you are after.

With all this praticising you should really be getting 1000+ a game by now, and setting yourself 2000 as a target especially on a known match play table.
H for instance gets angry with himself if he fails to score 7000+ any time.
Not that I'm suggesting that you should grow a ponytail, join a heavy metal band and develop a fondness for real ale and amphibians ! ;D ;D
:) I'll aim for 2k every game now. I may change the rules and remove the pegs/mushrooms in the games though, that should help me ;) Either that or buy a table, there's a nice spot just begging for a table in our living room.
I had some good (by my standard) breaks on the Worthing table and then went and stupidly wiped out :-[
Not sure where our next little roadtrip will be to. May try and get to that pub in Cublington, Bucks. Got trips to Hastings lined-up and I'm sure we'll get a few games in. Some of the other minigolfers on the tour want to give Bar Billiards a go too.

While in Worthing for the BMGA British Masters Minigolf Tournament a couple of weekends ago me, my wife and our friend John headed to the Marine View Hotel Bar for some games of Bar Billiards.
What a great venue and very good table. You can really tell the difference between competition tables and those just for fun. I managed some 1000+ games and only messed up with one silly wipe-out.
Would love to play the game more often and on good tables. It's certainly an addictive sport :-)
We've got a Minigolfer's Bar Billiards Tournament & Pub Crawl lined-up soon. Some players playing for the first time, others coming along that played in their youth and others like me who've played in the last year or so. Should be great fun.
Seeing as you are called the Ham and Eggers, perhaps next time you visit worthing you should try the Smugglers Return in East Worthing, which have a very good table, and the co-incidental thing about the pub is it used to be called THE HAM. Worth a visit, it used to be my home table many years ago!
