You can buy kits for repairing these sort of stains but if you kow anyone who smokes get a damp cloth dab it in the ash and rub on the mark and it should disappear. You might want to try it on a hidden place first ! I have tried it and it worked

Thanks for that.I have friends who smoke so will try it next time they are here
I have used a product called a "Miracle Cloth " It took out a huge heat blemish where some one plonked a dish straight from the oven onto a dark wood table. Lakeland used to stock them - also used on brass that was not cleaned for ten years and left to the elements ... it was great.

Going to Google that right now.Ta
Try ordinary (non-gel) toothpaste mixed 50/50 with baking soda. Just spread it on, rub it in, let it sit for 10 minutes, wipe off...
miracle cloths are here on eBay
When I worked in a pub years ago we used the ash out of the ash trays!!!!
Brown shoe polish usually works....
Also you can rub with a brazil nut.
