Spots & Stripes

A temporary closure during 2022 due to discussions with the extremely kind and generous landlord about Covid related backpay put a large spanner in the works for anyone who needs a guaranteed darts venue somewhere fairly near Waterloo Station (i.e. me). However, in 2023 it is back in play, and as busy as ever.

Fundamentally this is a pool hall, and a very welcome one at that, with a row of dart boards nestled at the rear, with a somewhat low ceiling. Upstairs, however, there are another six boards – generally reserved for individual league players – including the cleverest self-scoring dart board that I’ve seen so far. (For the dart board nerd, I believe it is the Prodigy Steel Tip, which costs about £1k!).

Do visit Spots and Stripes. And if you are new to the venue, and it is dark, don’t be too put off by the alleyway, and don’t walk staight past; the underwhelming entrance tells nothing about the fun to be had inside!

Been to this pub?

Tell us when you last played there, so we know the board is still up – and do leave any interesting (clean!) stories while you’re at it.
