Do I need to book a slot in advance in order to play pool at Plonk Hackney?

We recommend that you book a time slot in advance, but it is not obligatory. If you pop in to our venue and there is a vacant pool table, our staff will let you play. You should know, however, that groups that have booked a time slot have priority over everyone else. If all pool tables are taken, you can wait for an available time slot. You can grab a drink and play games at the arcade in order to make the time pass faster!

Can I bring my children with me?

Children and young people under 18 are welcome at the Plonk Hackney until 5pm on weekdays, and they have to be accompanied by an adult at all times. Under 18s are not allowed to play at the big pool tables, but we have a special pool table just for them!

For how long can I play pool?

Every time slot lasts for 30 minutes. If you believe that this amount of time is not enough for you, you can book two consecutive slots.
