Could this be the final death knell to the British Pub?
Most of the pubs I know including my own local only run a quiz to make it a
viable pub. They also run pool and darts teams for the same reason.
Certain nights at the start of the week (Monday to Wednesday) without these
they would only have one or two customers.
If this is true I fear for the long term future of my local.
Quiz nights may fill the pub but they are not entirely profitable. Sometimes
you get student teams or people that do not normally come to the pub.
Sometimes people in those teams nurse a coke for a couple of hours.
It does however get them out of the front rooms and into their local pub.
