Burroughes & Watts therefore gained a formidable reputation world-wide for the quality of its snooker tables, cues and accessories. By 1900, not only did it have branches in many of the major cities in the U.K., it also had branches in many countries throughout the world. These included India, China, Australia, South Africa, Canada, Ceylon, Malaysia, Burma, Chile, and the Canary Islands.
Burroughes & Watts received considerable royal patronage, especially from Queen Victoria. Queen Victoria and her husband Prince Albert, were bot keen snooker players. She held the name in such high esteem that she bestowed a Royal Warrant on the company. Burroughes and Watts was therefore appointed supplier of billiards tables to Her Majesty the Queen. Royal warrants quickly followed from the Prince of Wales, and later Kind Edward VII, the King of the Belgians and the King of Greece. As a result, even to this day, many of the royal palaces and stately homes in the UK, as well as overseas, boast a Burroughes & Watts table.
Overseas, the company gained many prize medals at international fairs in Europe for the quality of its products. This, in turn led to enormous world-wide recognition and exporting success.
