RILEY ARISTOCRAT CHAMPION2The Aristocrat is engineered and built to the same exacting standards as the Aristocrat Tournament Champion.  The obvious difference is the traditional style, dark stained mahogany throughout opposed to the Tournament Champion which is the distinctive mahogany and silver mix providing a more contemporary styling. The Aristocrat is provided with club cut slate and pockets as opposed to the tournament specification of the Tournament Champion – a little more forgiving for the casual player.

A traditional snooker table that has been in production for over 100 years. Iconic design and styling that has been often imitated, but never equalled. The Aristocrat is made in England by expert craftsmen – trained to accept nothing but the very best. Available with either V1 Steel Block cushions or the more ttraditional wood cushion.

No other company in the World has the experience of Riley in crafting snooker tables – we were around when the game was first invented. The Aristocrat, with its unmistakeable, exquisitely turned legs, has become the iconic image of the sport – think snooker and you probably visualise an Aristocrat table.

RILEY ARISTOCRAT TOURNAMENT CHAMPION7Manufactured from the finest mahogany and hand selected solid woods then hand finished to the highest standards, this is not only a superlative piece of sports equipment. This table is a beautifully crafted heirloom that will grace any home.

All Riley Aristocrat tables are custom built to order.  The Reason:

RILEY ARISTOCRAT CHAMPION7To ensure all timbers selected are in optimum condition when used in the manufacture of each table.  We do not believe in stock piling tables in warehouses which fluctuate in temperatures which can lead to warpage or elements that can lead to degradation.  Each table goes through a rigorous QC process.  As each table is hand crafted this ensures a significant amount of checks are made as each table passes through the manufacturing process.

Sizes available: 12′, 10′, 9′ and 8′

• Manufactured from only the finest mahogany and selected hard woods throughout the table
(optional – mahogany construction throughout)
• West of England Strachan 6811 cloth provided as standard
• Club cut slate as used in top snooker clubs throughout the world
• Highest quality Italian slate – laser cut, five piece and 4.5cm thick
• Option: Riley V1 steels for optimum response along the whole length of the cushion
• Pocket leathers made from hand selected English Cow hide leather
• Premium Northern Rubber cushion material for consistent bounce and maximum lifespan

Wood type and cushion frieze

Manufactured from solid mahogany and selected solid woods throughout the unique Riley Cushion construction. Optionally, you can choose to have V1 steel block cushions on the 12′ tables sizes:  only the finest English made steels are used to build the cushion frieze. This ensures a precision response from each cushion.

Riley use a manufacturing technique in the cushions that has been the same for almost 100 years, often overlooked and dismissed as unimportant by competing brands. The Riley V1 steel cushion is the finest in the world.

Even to this day most professional players would choose Riley tables over and above any other.


RA12C Viewer Size (72Dpi)_0003_Spec 1 copy 2Riley use the finest Italian laser cut, precision engineered, 4.5 cm thick slate. We are one of only a few, if not the only manufacturer, to use this prestigious quality slate. No other slate meets these exacting standards.

Five pieces of slate cut from one slab to ensure consistency when the slates are laid down. No filler, no joints, no lips. Just one seamless slate playfield.RA12C Viewer Size (72Dpi)_0005_Spec 3 copy

Our table frames are designed with the unique Riley adjustable slate support system. These ensure that the slate is properly balanced to the frame and that the weight of the table is evenly distributed – this is key to keeping the table level over time.

Cushion Rubber

Northern Rubber – made in England

The rubbers used on the cushion and friezes (steels) are like caviar and champagne; they must go together to get the full benefit and enhancement to the playing experience.

Northern rubber is the world’s best, no question, and is standard on all Aristocrat tables.

Pocket Leathers

The pockets are made using English Cow hide leather to ensure maximum durability while at the same time providing a very fine quality leather that is soft to the touch yet does not crack under use.

The Cloth

West of England 6811 gold.

The finest cloth produced with the most glorious nap; bristly to the touch one way and as smooth as silk the other way.

Snooker tables are traditional and napped cloth is essential. The nap when used at the highest level will assist the most talented players. When used properly, the nap will allow a ball played at the correct pace to be drawn very slightly into the pocket.
