This building has been keeping people refreshed since 1856. In its everlasting pursuit to serving drinks, this indestructible piece of architecture survived two bombings in the Blitz in WWII. Two aspiring publicans have now bought the premises and are closing it for a short while before reopening it as the Spit and Sawdust. With a nod to the past and a look to the future, Spit and Sawdust will bring back this cornerstone of the community with a new lease of life.

SHUFFLEBOARD

Table shuffleboard is a game in which players push metal-and-plastic weighted pucks (also called weights or quoits) down a long and smooth wooden table into a scoring area at the opposite end of the table. Shooting is performed with the hand directly, as opposed to deck shuffleboard's use of cue sticks.

 

How to play...

 

  • Play rock, paper, scissors to decide who goes first

  • Players slide their four weights from the same end alternately, attempting to get them as near as possible to the end of  the board without falling off

  • The weight must pass the foul line and not drop off  the end of  the table to count

  • Players can deliberately knock already played weights out of  play

  • Once all weights have been pushed down the table, add up the points - only the weights of the winning player, that are in front of  the opponents weights count

  • A weight that lands on or touching a line counts counts as being in the lower scoring area

  • A weight that half  hangs off  the end of  the table is called a ‘hanger’ and you receive a bonus point for this

  • For a two player game the winner is the first to 15, for doubles its 21
