I’ve been to most of the below, and have included all the information I can find below. It’s best to check with the pub you’re planning to visit for the latest updates on start times, entry fee, and whether or not the pub quiz is going ahead.

Cheltenham pub quiz on Sunday

The Exmouth, Bath Road

Held every Sunday, The Exmouth’s pub quiz takes place each Sunday at 7.30pm. It’s on the cheaper end of the scale, at £1 per person entry.

It’s a competitive quiz, and good fun to battle it out with some of the other brains on Bath Road.

The Old Restoration, High Street

The Old Restoration’s pub quiz takes place each Sunday at 8pm with a cash prize. They often have a number of offers on food including sharers, so it’s a good idea to arrive early if you fancy some pub grub before getting your thinking cap on.

The Royal, Horsefair Street

One of Charlton Kings’ favourite pubs, The Royal, hosts its pub quiz every Sunday. A little tongue in cheek, it kicks off at 8pm, and you can conveniently book your quiz table via their online booking system. Costing £1 per person to enter, all winning proceeds going to the Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice, making their pub quiz a great cause too.
