Club Facilities


Snooker

The club has 3 full size snooker tables which are always maintained to a high standard. We have in house cues for anyone to use or you are welcome to bring your own and enjoy a game at anytime. These tables are popular and members of all ages can be seen having a friendly game at lunchtime and the evenings.

The club has two snookers teams that play in the local snooker league and are very successful in bringing back lots of trophies year after year. We also throughout the year, in house competitions that anyone can take part in too.

You can also find the league standings and results of the Horsington & District Snooker League here

Poker

Poker evenings are held on every first and third Monday of every month where they start at 7:30pm. Texas Hold’em is the format that is played and anyone is welcome to join in any of the games. If you would like to participate in one of our games or get free lessons if you don’t know how to play the game but would like to learn, please contact our Steward Stephen and he will gladly inform you on the next game or lesson that is being held.

We have both male and female poker players that play week in week out and range from their early twenties to their eighties. The poker has been a huge success due to the competitive nature but the funny topics discussed over the table at every occasion. There is never a dull moment and that is for sure!

Sky Sports & BT Sport 

The club has two large screen TVs, with one situated in the lounge area and the other in the bar (this is where most members sit and have banter with the opposing team!). We have both the full Sky Sports HD & BT Sport HD packages and show most premier league football games, cricket, golf, motor racing and any other televised sport that is available seasonally

You can even have a small wager on certain games by beating our Steward’s prediction. If the score in the game is not predicted correctly, then it rolls over to the next chosen game. You will find the steward’s prediction on the board next to the bar in the card’s room.

Quiz Nights

A chance to keep the grey matter alive! Quiz nights are held at 8pm on alternative Thursdays. These are popular evenings with the members and are usually well attended. We do not have a resident quiz master as the quiz is set by selected members themselves, so there is always a range of different questions for you to answer.

If you would like to participate and test your knowledge, just bring a partner along (teams of two) and see if you can win one of our small cash prizes without your outstanding knowledge!

If you feel you would like to set a quiz at sometime, please speak to our long standing organiser, Mrs Margaret pell and she would be delighted to arrange a date for you.

Live Entertainment

We hold live entertainment evenings on the last Saturday of every month. These nights are very successful and usually very busy, lively occasions, so it’s always advised to come early so you can secure your seating!

We have a variety of artists performing a whole range of music with songs from all decades, songs from shows, swing, rock n’ roll etc, guitarists, comedy and a little little line dancing sometimes too.

It is always a great night to socialise and get up on the floor for a dance or two. We start the live music at approximately 8:30pm and during the intervals we play Bingo and hold a raffle to keep you entertained!

For more information on the entertainment, please visit the club where there is printed leaflet informing you of the artists booked in for the year or view our events page.

Bingo

Bingo is held every Wednesday evening at 8pm. This is something that has been very popular in the club for many, many years now, and is always very well attended. Please note we are not Gala or Mecca,s o you won’t win thousands of pounds , but we can guarantee you will have an enjoyable evening!

We still play the traditional format using “Two Fat Ladies” and Two Little Ducks” etc. It is not taken too seriously and is just a night to socialise and enjoy. Who knows, you could be the next to win the £100 snowball too!

Dominos

The traditional game of 5’s and 3’s is still played in the club, but sadly the local domino league has folded due to a shortage of other pub and club entries. However we still host in house competitions and if you would like to participate in these, you will find the information on the notice board on the bar.

Dominoes is still very popular in the club and on certain nights, you can watch a friendly game being played amongst our members. Usually this is quite entertaining to watch and the banter is better than most comedy sketches!

Members Draw

You have to be in to win. It’s as simple as that! The draw is held every Friday evening at 9:30pm and every member is entered into the draw. If you are lucky enough to have your name called out and you are present in the club at the time of the draw, you will the current prize which is never lower than £100 and has been known to reach over £400!

If you are not present when your membership number is chosen at random, the prize money will roll over increasing by £10 each week until it is won.

Alongside the draw, we have a free drinks raffle too. From 6pm on Fridays, for every drink you purchase, you will be given a raffle ticket. At 10pm, the draw is made and the winner gets a drink of their choice on the house. There are three sometimes four chances to win too.

Darts

This is a the latest addition to the club with more and more members enjoying a game. From 501 to cricket, there is always someone who will have a game with you! Hopefully in the future we will generate enough interest to enter a team into the local leagues.

Private Parties & Functions

As a club member, we offer use of the lounge if you wish to hold a party or function. If you have a celebration or function in the near future, please feel free to speak to our stewardess, as she will be more than happy to help with any catering or any entertainment you wish to have. We are also willing to help organise any charity events within the club.
