Shots Watford: Q&As with the Director of Watford's renovated sports bar

Previously known to many of us in Watford as Rileys, Shots Watford is a recently renovated sports bar located at 65 The Parade. Shots has 10 English Pool Tables, 8 American Pool Tables, 5 Snooker Tables, 3 Darts Lanes and 1 Giant Screen for live sport!

Shots was only able to fully open the doors of their new renovated bar this Summer, and as you walk up the flights of stairs and enter through the double doors you can really see the improvements; the interior design is modern, the music is great, and the pool tables are better than ever.

We met with Andy, director at Shots Watford, to speak about the improvements and it was clear that their intention was to appeal to all ages and be suitable for multiple occasions. We even had a quickfire Q&A with Andy that you can check out below!
