Chris and Jolyon met when they used to work for the Foreign Office in 2008. Since they were kids, they both separately always dreamed of owning a Château, but never thought their dream could become a reality.
Julia and Paul McKeivor established Billard Room Ltd in 1993 and have been restoring bespoke antique billiard, snooker and pool tables in the Mendips hills of Somerset for thirty years. The ethos of the company has been organic, stemming from Paul’s love of billiards and snooker competition participation in the 1980’s.
