    Hi all, I'm new to the area (and this board), and was hoping if someone could tell me whether Brixton has any decent pub quizzes?

    Cheers

    can i heartily not recommend the one at the trinity. its run by a paid quizmaster who sports a madonna-esque headpiece and in between questions goes round tables attempting to make 'hilarious' banter with punters. its toe-curling.

    What day is that (just so I know to avoid it)?

    Mind you, *nothing* could be as bad as the Hoxton twat/Shoreditch Fuckwit-esque one they had at the Rest Is Noise. Sooo wacky! Crazy!

    Thanks for the replies. I might try that one on Thursday, and if I do I'll let you know what I thought of it.

    First one is 29th March. I have it in my diary as the host with the most was very insistent that I note the date :D

    I think it's monthly initially but may become fortnightly if popular enough.

    Does anyone know of a pub that NEEDS a talented quiz master? I may know of one.

    I think you'd be better off going into a pub and persuading them to put a quiz night on rather than wait for vacancy to become available.

    Tuesdays at the Prince Regent. Best for all-round questions I reckon.

    Whenever I accidentally happen upon the Trinity quiz I turn around and find another establishment. Unbearable.

    the guy who does the trinity one does it full-time, along with MCing weddings etc going by the shit he flagrantly hands out. the thought of him MCing my wedding almost makes me want to vomit tho.

    well, team shiny elephant gained last place out of eight at the queen's head tonight. Excellent evening, and being repeated in two weeks, apparently :) the beer tokens were class :D

    So the updated list reads:

    Tuesdays:
    Grosvenor, Sidney Street. Stockwell, SW9 - very tough questions with a science bent
    Queens Head, Stockwell Road SW9 (every other week) - fun
    Trinity Arms, 45 Trinity Gardens, SW9 8DR - crap
    Prince Regent, 69 Dulwich Road, SE24 0NJ Best for all-round questions

    Thursdays
    Elm Park Tavern, Elm Park Road SW2 - for a touch of the bizarre

    Any more?
