Pub quiz… the answers

Recently we have been going every other Sunday to a pub called The New Inn, in the tiny village of Kewstoke, less than a mile from Weston-super-Mare. We’ve been quite successful and a month ago we were asked if we would write and organise the quiz which we did, expecting to run it last night. However for various reasons, someone else had organised it, so we took part… and guess what, we won!

We will do the quiz in two weeks time… I shared a round here yesterday, here are the answers:
