Love this pub quiz! It is so chill and friendly and welcoming. Even if you just suck at quizzes come for the mood and the company. The food is on - nothing special. But the quiz is it!

The picture om TA is spot on: this is how the pies look. And they are great! We had the wild boar one and the steak & guinness. Both were fab. The masked patatoes are fine, amd the peas a bit undercooked. Note: this is...More
