A very friendly (and not loud) place to shoot a game or practice. The owner/proprietor is happy to help with instruction....there are regulation tables and the smaller ones......a very friendly and convenient commute from home and work.

Markley's is under new management. I know the new owner, he's a great guy and is really looking to turn Markley's around and make it a fun destination for a night (or day) of pool with friends or family since Saturday Morning is Family Fun time!! Don't let the OLD bad reviews (or the review of Norristown in general) keep you away from the great time you can have at Markley's under Rich's ownership.

If you want ambiance and credit head to Dave and Busters. If you want an out of the way old time pool hall with top of the line well maintained tables then go to Markley. It is the place to be after hours when the Billairds Expo is in Valley Forge.Look if you head to a back alley pool hall with three guys and not one of you has the cash to pay for the table then maybe you shouldn't be there. I know every place takes cards these days, but this place is a throwback, cranky skeptical owner who wants you to pay for his reasonable rates in cash. It is safe there, just don't bet money if you are not willing to lose it and pay with a smile, and don't expect them to take American Express. It's not that kind of place. It is the kind of place to have fun playing pool, meet people who will give you pointers, and not be seen especially if you are hookying from work! They have Sunday specials and afternoon rates. Awesome seedy place with great old full size tables.

i've been a customer at Markley Billiards for the last four years but tonight i was majorly disrespected..
i'm friends a couple employees there by way of being a regular there...but the elderly man working there was very disrespectful...i was trying to pay for my friends after a fun 2 hours of pool and i handed him a credit card..he swipes it a couple of times and throws it on the counter in front of meand says it doesn't work...i bite my lip and didn't angry and so i handed him another credit card and he doesn't even swipe it and throws that one back at me again!!!...i demanded an apology and he denies throwing it with so many witnesses around...then he follows me outside and challenges me to a fight..but not with him of course....he tells me to wait there so he can call a bunch of his friends to fight me...i was like what?!....they just lost a regular customer tonight

Pros: good amount of tables

Cons: one cranky and crazy employee

I came here one time to play pool... it is extremely smokey and empty except for a few lone men playing pool and late at night (I have had to come several times to pick up people) I have felt rather unsafe driving to the back area... the place is tucked in the complete corner of a shopping center and has a shady feel. I wouldn't go alone.

PROS: Not many pool halls in the area
CONS: Smokey, shady, feels unsafe.
