So have a ‘coldie’, and pull up a pew, and I’ll show you ’round.*

* ‘Pool Room’ – room with a Pool Table. ‘Pool’ is a similar game to billiards or snooker – and the preferred game in Australia. It’s played in a lot of pubs and usually has slightly different house rules from place to place.
When in a pub if you want to reserve a game at a pool table you put a small coin (that you can identify as yours) ‘in the queue’ on the edge of the table and games are played in that order.
* ‘a coldie’ – a cold beer
* ‘pull up a pew’ – take a seat
