It’s been a while…

It’s been a while since we did a pub quiz. 4 years was one estimate. I’m not sure that it was quite that long, but it was certainly pre-pandemic – BTV.

And so we re-mortgaged our houses and headed off to the Fireman’s quiz last night.

Fireman’s markets itself as a true English-style pub, and I had always thought of that being more because of the traditional ambiance rather than the ridiculous prices for beer and food.

Now it’s both.

Thankfully, it seems that we haven’t lost it. Some good general knowledge, a shot of educated guessery, some excellent groupthink moments and a couple of fortuitous gambles:

Oysters?!? Wrapped in bacon?!?! Oysters??


…and we finished in a creditable second place out of the 30+ teams playing on the night, a mere 1 point behind the winners.

And we couldn’t really fault ourselves for any of the three questions we got wrong on the night.

So that’ll do, pig. That’ll do.

Will we head back again soon?
Probably, but we’ll need time to save up a bit before we can buy another pizza.
