The Shire Horse, Kettering, Northamptonshire

Northamptonshire Table Skittles, Darts, and Pool are played at the Shire Horse in the centre of Kettering town. The skittles table was custom made for the pub by a regular customer a good few years ago, and is used by the pub team in the Kettering & District League.

The handsome 'E League' Wooden Spoon currently resides at the pub.

A Tyrolean Table Skittles board is also available for play in the pub. The game is similar in concept to the French/European game of Toptafel, where a spinning top is sent down the board to knock over as many skittles as possible. More luck than skill, but good fun nevertheless.
