Quiz Night every Wednesday

Join us every Wednesday from 8pm for our General Knowledge quiz night. Your host is friend-of-the-pub Gary who presents 25 questions plus a picture round designed to tease and test. Your prize for doing well is a gallon of ale (which can also be supped in the form of 8 pints of any draught product or 8 glasses of house wine). Anyone can win, it's not about getting all of the answers right- confused? Here's how..
The basic premise of the quiz is simple. You get 25 questions, you need to answer straight away as the sheets are gathered in at the end of the 25th. On the sheet you have a snakes and ladders board. As your quizmaster Gary tells you the answers he also tells you how many spaces to move if you got it correct, whilst obeying the rules of snakes and ladders of course. Hence you could get all 25 correct and still not win as the winner is either a) the first person to the final square or b) the highest team after 25 questions.

Craft Beers new to Bunkers Hill

In February we said goodby Heineken, goodbye Strongbow, hello Meantime Brewing Co. and hello Mortimers Orchard. Although we've been selling craft beers- Blue Moon and Thornbridge Jaipur- for over two years, we've watched and waited as the market for these qwirky lagers grows and develops. We also opted for a more niche draught cider, as cider drinkers become more informed and knowledgable about cider Strongbow just doesn't cut the mustard.
We've sourced THREE brand new craft beers from some of London's top brewers. We have Frontier Craft Lager, a 4.5% clean, refreshing lager, brewed with new world hops by Fullers of Chiswick in London. Another popular craft beer in the big smoke is London Pale Ale by Meantime Brewing Company, a 4.3% refreshing lager brewed using American Cascade and Centennial hops. The third new lager is Dry Hopped Lager by Suffollk outfit Adnams a complex and rounded 4.2% which is both sweet and dry; this is the connoisseurs' session beer par excellence).
