Pub Quiz Review

The Blue Bell, Sunderland
Tuesday Nights - 9pm
Our search for a new quizzing home on Tuesday Nights continues (due to a rather harsh ban on two of our team from playing the quiz we have attended on Tuesday for the past 6 months) and we headed to the Blue Bell this week which is based in Fulwell, just outside of Sunderland City Centre.
I had been to this quiz a couple of times before, but it had been probably 3 or 4 years since my last visit. The quiz kicks off with a straight forward picture round, followed by 10 questions on current affairs, 20 on General Knowledge and a jackpot round. The quiz is hosted by a member of the local quiz league and thus the question standard is higher than you would expect elsewhere, with a nice range of questions and a handful of ones that had us thinking.

Prizes on offer include money and beer tokens and there were 12 teams in attendance which is a good figure for this area. The quiz itself is well worth attending if you are in the area, and although it is perhaps a bit on the short side, it is certainly somewhere I would return again. (Especially as we now have vouchers for free beer!).
Tony (the host of this quiz) himself has also written a quiz book, containing 4000 quiz questions across a range of subjects. All the kind of things you are likely to come across at your local quiz night and well worth a look.
