The Foresters Arms, Leicester

Table Skittles, Leicester style. The table itself seems slightly larger than the Northamptonshire game, though this may be an optical illusion down to the much skinnier pins used in the Leicestershire game (see below). This table is well used in various local leagues.

Skinny pins, a King Pin, and smaller 'Cheeses' mark the Leicestershire game out from its Northamptonshire cousin. The rules of play are quite different too, but to be honest, it's not a game I'm as familiar with as I thought I was before my visit to the Foresters.

League Darts is also very important at the Foresters, with a fine array of trophies on display.

It wasn't so long ago that most pubs were host to a wide range of pub games.
