Burroughes & Watts is one of the oldest and the most prestigious known names in the billiards and snooker industry. Originally founded in Soho Square London in 1836, it soon flourished as a leading manufacturer of billiard tables, cues and accessories, In 1923 they had a splendid catalogue produced a bound booklet to show all the types and sizes of tables they had to offer, this also confirmed the high standards of workmanship and the position they held as a leading manufacturer of billiard tables.
However, the manufacture of these new tables effectively came to an end in England with the introduction of the Utility Scheme for furniture which was in force between 1943 and 1953 but the company continued to trade, and in common with all other English manufacturers, concentrated on table renovation and the supply of cues and other accessories, with trading conditions continuing to be in a desperate state through the 1950s & 60s, the company finally ceased trading in 1967, the main assets were taken over by property developers Hurst Park Syndicate Ltd and the Table renovation business was sold to E J Riley Ltd
