Open all day
Very much not like the other Wetherspoon's we've been into.
The Billiard Hall has fake pine flooring and panelling on the walls and every conceivable flat space.
There are more leaning spaces here too, reflecting its position on the Saturday night bottle run for local youth.
Literally converted from a billiard hall, it still has the old tin roof from the outside, though we suspect it was once a dance hall too.
Despite it not looking like a Wetherspoon, it has the same ingredients as the others: good value cheap food and real ale at realistic prices.
Usually four guests on, though Sundays can see only a single one left.
Not more than 500 yards from the metro (West Bromwich Central), which is itself on the ring road, go left out of the station and follow the ring road.
Only 15 mins from Birmingham on the tram, 20 mins from Wolverhampton.
I go to the billiard hall every sat and have always been made welcome by the staff who are all pleasant I would not miss my sat in there. (28/10/2004)
