Quiz start time 7.45pm
It was another cracking quiz in September and although there were a few grumbles over the difficulty of the sitcoms round, we had some excellent scores. It was another fantastic win for the McBaker Fellowship who went home with chocolates and a bottle of King's Ginger Wine, while the booby prize of a single deep fried whitebait went down a treat.
Remember to book your table for next month's quiz!
