Pool Dining Table Buying Guide

Pool Dining Tables Overview

Here at Luxury Pool Tables, we specialise in offering stunning pool dining tables that don’t comprise comfortability nor gameplay. All of our pool diners can be used as truly multi-functional tables including being a Pool Table, Dining Table and Table Tennis Table. They all have their unique design features, therefore, if in any doubt we suggest giving us a call to talk through your requirements so that we can help point you in the right direction.

This ‘Pool Dining Table buying guide’ is designed to help you know what to look out for when choosing a Pool Dining Table for your home or business. If you would like to speak to us for advise we would be happy to hear from you!

One of the key design aspects of a good Pool Dining Table, in addition to being a high quality Pool Table, is for it to have a narrow frame to allow good leg clearance. Chunky Pool Tables will not work due to not being able to fit your legs under the table whilst keeping the height of the table at an acceptable level. It is also important for the pockets not to hang down hence look unsightly and get in the way of your legs when dining.

Our Pool Dining Tables either have elastic pockets which lie flat to the slate and stretch as ball are potted, a hidden ball return system, or ball return trays / rails which fold away when not in use.

The height of a pool dining table is also vital to ensure a comfortable dining experience and a high quality game of pool, as pool and dining are done at different heights! A standard height dining table is typically around 76cm from the floor to the top of the table, whereas a pool dining table is around 80cm from the floor to the top of the dining tops. To help overcome this height difference we have our Contemporary & Slimline tables that can be fitted with our rise and fall system (video below) which lifts & lowers the height of the table between these two heights, or alternatively, for our fixed height tables, we can have a set of benches made with longer legs to compensate for the slightly higher table height.

Please continue reading below to see all of our Luxury Pool Dining Tables and if you have any further questions on these, please do ask and we’ll be happy to help!

Dining Top Options

We offer a few different options with regards to the actual dining top for our Pool Dining Tables . All of our Indoor Pool Dining Tables come with the option of veneered wood dining top or a glass dining top. The matching veneered dining tops are ideal if you want to disguise the fact you’re dining table is in fact a Pool Table as they can be made in the matching wood colour to your pool table!

Alternatively, we offer two types of glass dining top, including clear glass or a frosted glass, which can be used on all of our Pool Diners. These are a great option for more modern looking tables as they showcase the pool aspect when dining!

The final dining top option is designed for our Outdoor Pool Table, that being a HPL (high pressure laminate) dining top to withstand the outside elements. It’s worth noting that the glass dining tops can also be used for our Outdoor table so they are naturally waterproof!

Please see some examples of these dining tops in the images below.

Pool Dining Table Ranges


Modern Pool Dining Table

Our Modern Pool Table is available in our 5ft to 9ft sizes, and can be set up to play any game type, although we recommend using our 5ft, 6ft and 7ft sizes for English Pool and 8′ or 9′ for American Pool.

The Modern Pool Table has a variety of wood and cloth colours to choose from, as well as 4 different top frame options which you can pick from as well as 20 different leg options which include 2 LED leg options (Leg’s 18 and 20). With such a range of options for detailing, this table is ideal to completely personalise, so even though this range of tables is called the Modern range, you can still make your table have a classic traditional feel to it and adapt it to your needs.

The two types of cloth to choose from are Simonis 760 and is a ‘Speed Cloth’ and the Hainsworth Smart which is a ‘Napped Cloth’. It is most common to find a Napped Cloth on an English Pool Table and a Speed Cloth on an American Pool table, but the choice is yours!

The Modern Pool Dining Table is a very practical table as it has the capacity to store the dining tops underneath the table itself to ensure they are safe and out of the way when playing, this can be seen in the below image.

When a ball is pocketed on a Modern Pool Table the ball can be collected in one of the two drawers either side of the table.

Contemporary Pool Dining Table

Our Contemporary Pool Dining Table is a well rounded table, especially with the Rise & Fall System as this guarantees a comfortable dining experience as well as ensuring the pool playing isn’t hindered. To further improve the dining aspect of our Contemporary pool diner, it actually has a slightly thinner frame when compared to the Modern Pool Table, meaning there is an extra 6cm of leg room available!

Our innovate Rise and Fall system is a great option to consider if you were planning to use standard height dining chairs/benches with your pool dining table. The system is a very straight forward and easy process, and just requires a simple lift at either end of the table, and requires no electronics. This system takes the table from a standard dining height (76cm) to standard pool playing height (82cm).

This table is available in our 6′, 7′ and 8′ sizes, and is compatible for all game types including; English Pool, American Pool, Snooker or Russian Pyramid.

The Contemporary table has two different ball collection systems, those being an elastic pocket system, or a ball collection. For the elastic pockets the balls will remain in the pockets after being potted or whereas with the ball collection system, the balls travel down external rails under the table into two trays in the middle of the table (the ball return system is not available on our 6′ table). The ball return system can then fold away when using the table as a dining table to avoid getting in the way of leg room.

Contemporary Pool Table (fixed height):
Floor to dining top: 797mm
Floor to frame (space for legs): 680mm (more space due to 60mm thinner frame than Modern range).
Floor to playing surface: 740mm

Contemporary with Rise and Fall:
Floor to dining top (when lowered): 752mm
Floor to frame (space for legs) when lowered: 635mm
Floor to playing surface (when lifted): 760mm

Outdoor Pool Dining Table

Our Outdoor Pool Dining Table is available in either 7′ (228cm x 119cm) or 8′ (253cm x141cm) sizes. We recommend 7′ for English Pool or 8′ American Pool, however the choice is yours.

The Outdoor Pool Table is based on our Contemporary Pool Table, but due to the table being made specifically to withstand outdoor conditions the customisation is more limited to ensure the quality is maintained throughout all weather conditions.

Like our Contemporary Pool Table, the Outdoor Pool Table has an elastic pocket system, in which the balls remain in the pockets once a ball has been pocketed, this system can hold up to around 10 balls each.

Our Outdoor Pool Table comes with a professional waterproof cover and dining top as standard. Even if you don’t intend to use the table as a dining table, the top is required to help stop water pooling in the middle of the table when it is covered.

Our Industrial Pool Dining Table has a very distinctive and abstract look to it, and allows you to have the choice of 2 cloths. Firstly, the Simonis cloth is the top of the range ‘Speed Cloth’ and the Hainsworth Smart is a high quality ‘Napped Cloth’. It is most common to find a Napped Cloth on English Pool and Snooker tables and a Speed Cloth on American Pool and Carom tables, but this doesn’t have to be the case.

This table has the option for additional dining tops, or can be purchased as a stand-alone pool table. There are two options in terms of dining tops, those being a glass dining top (either clear or frosted) or a thin veneered oak dining top. To maintain the slick look of the Industrial Pool Dining Table, we would recommend the glass dining top, and have found this to be the most popular. We also offer an additional Table Tennis Top so you can turn this it into a multi-use games tables.

This Industrial Table has the additional option to come with a ball retrieval system shown in the image below. With this system the balls are collected at the bottom of the table stand.
