Given that English pubs will easily consitute an entire post in themselves, I am starting here with the wonder that is The Great British Pub Quiz. Whilst it isn’t entirely well-documented when and where pub quizzes started, we can almost definitely claim that it is British and my extensive sources and research (ie googling Wikipedia) can confirm this.
|This may be the hardest round that I have ever seen!|
I do love a good quiz. As does my boyfriend Mark, so we often try and find a great local quiz when I’m at his. His family are really into quizzing too so it’s lovely to go in a big group. And now that I am back in Lincolnshire I am looking into some of the local quizzes around here with my mum, as well as a couple of pub meals whilst I’m at it!
|Isn’t he lovely?|
What constitutes a quality quiz for me is a good mix of questions. I want general knowledge, things that have been in the news and also a little bit of celebrity gossip, just so that I can throw out my extensive knowledge (usually as the only one at the table with any clue!). We frequented so many over the Christmas period that our 2011 knowledge got better at each one, which really helped us as we hadn’t been in the country for such a huge part of the year (I spent about 5 weeks in the UK last year!)
