March 9: Sunday Pub Quiz

Happy days, friends! It’s Sunday. We’re serving brunch from 9 am to 2 pm, and we’ve got the weekly Sunday Pub Quiz tonight at 8 pm. While there may be a theme, the questions are of a general knowledge nature (though arguably obscure at times given that a Welshman writes the quiz!).

For those looking for specialist quizzes, we hold them every Wednesday at 8 pm. Next week’s topic: the American Civil War.

Right! Back to Sunday: the pub quiz starts at 8 pm sharpish. And Sam Fiske will provide the jazz an hour before and 30 minutes after the quiz. It’s a little thing we call Sam’s Sandwich.

So bring your friends or make new ones! Get yourself a pint and enjoy quiz night.
