The Greyhound, Pimlico

There's now a weekly quiz at The Greyhound, running every Tuesday from around 7pm and usually finishing up before 10pm

Come along and test your knowledge, sample the food, have a few pints with your mates, your family and/or your colleagues all while showing off your impressive general knowledge, answering questions on categories like "The Simpsons", "London", "US state capitals", "Movies", "Soaps" and lots of others.

Entry is £1 per person with all entrance money going to charity and a £30 bar tab to the winning team. 5 rounds consisting of 1 picture round, 3 rounds of themed questions then a final music round where you get to showcase your extensive knowledge of hit music.

There's a friendly local crowd and it's a great way to spend an evening so come on down - next quiz is Tuesday January 21st 2014.

The The White Ferry, Victoria

Tomorrow will be my last quiz of 2013 - come along to The White Ferry House in Pimlico/Victoria and join in the fun. It will be a Christmas themed quiz so expect a picture round of celebrity santas and a music round filled with well-known songs that you only get to hear at this time of year!

£1 per person to enter, maximum of 5 players per team, £30 bar tab to the winners and all entry money will be going to Great Ormond Street Hospital for sick children so if you come and play you're doing something really worthwhile

Seriously, it's a good quiz tailored to ensure that everybody gets at least some of the answers right in each round and most people will do much better than they expect so come along with a crowd, have a drink or two, enjoy the delicious pizza available from the kitchen and show off your incredible brain-power by answering questions like "Which drinks company invented the modern image of Santa in the red suit and the big white beard?"

The The White Ferry, Victoria

I've just started hosting a quiz on Thursday evenings at The White Ferry House - it's been well received so far with a decent turn out over the past few weeks.

The quiz is a populist quiz covering 5 rounds with a picture round and a music round with the other 3 varying each week. I normally kick off between 7pm and 7.30pm and finish between 8.45pm and 9.15pm.

£1 per player, maximum of 5 people per team, all entry money goes to charity and the winning team receives a £30 bar tab.

If you're interested, feel free to just drop in but you might want to call up and book a table to avoid disappointment.

The Red Lion, Westminster

I love this pub. Discovered it only a couple of months ago when looking for a pub quiz on a Wednesday evening and this one popped up. The pub's always fairly busy being right in the heart of "Civil Service Land" but it has a decent atmosphere, the staff are all friendly and helpful and if there's no room to sit inside there are benches outside. Wide choice of drinks and snacks and good food from the kitchen.

They also do a fantastic quiz. Standard general knowledge type quiz but not so much of an emphasis on celebrities or sports as some quizzes and therefore much more accessible to everybody. 1 per person to enter, winner takes the pot. Quiz took a spring break recently but is relaunching on May 20th 2009.
