Q, If you look closely,I gave a link to the Steamboat Inn's own website on the 'Steamboat Inn' name, so I didn't think it was necessary to say where it was (beyond the boater's reference point, 'Trent Lock').

Go here:


Roo "Convoy"


I believe it is at the following location:

The Steamboat Inn
Lock Lane
Trent Lock
Long Eaton

Where is this Steamboat Inn?

Well, I know red isn't traditional for Bar Billiards, but I'm grateful for small mercies.

If it was commercialised in the way of darts or cricket or football, it would probably have advertisements on the baize.

Bar billiards is a brilliant game. First time I played Jim at it, I won - he's refused to play ever since. No tables round here any more anyway, more's the pity. I've thought of trying to get myself one but fear that buying and refurbing it would be a bit expensive. Red cloth? Is that a regional thing or just a novelty? Looks a bit hard on the eyes.
