A new sports bar has opened on the former Riley’s site in Rugby.

Bar8, in Bank Street, offers English and American pool, snooker, table tennis, darts and gambling machines.

Owners Jamie White, from Rugby, Stephanie Taylor, and Russell Blinco, both from Coventry, are keen to sign up new teams to use the facilities.

Stephanie said: “We wanted to try something different and hopefully people in Rugby enjoy coming to us. Jamie and Russell live and breathe pool, they play in leagues and it’s their passion. Absolutely anyone can come along and have a game from any age.”

The bar opened on Saturday April 18.

It is open Monday-Thursday noon till midnight, Friday noon till 1am, Saturday 10am to 1am and Sunday 10am to midnight.
