The Swan

Quiz Nights

Our next Quiz Night is on Wednesday 31st July at 7.30pm.

And we have our popular Quiz Night Food Menu available from 6.30pm.

Quiz nights occur every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month. Tables can be pre-booked via the Bar Staff using the email address Quiz questions can be heard throughout the pub as required, including both The Coach House and The Courtyard. Heaters are available for the colder evenings. Kick-off is always at 7.30pm.

Our regular Quiz Master is Martin Payne who regularly sets five rounds of questions which vary each time to keep it interesting. When Martin is not available, Micky (our General Manager) takes on the mantle. Teams of up to six are allowed. The entry fee for the quiz is £2. This will be used in three different ways:

  • Firstly, towards a £25 drinks voucher for the winning team (as well as the obvious bragging rights and the glory!).
  • Secondly, to contribute to the building renovation funds which are badly needed to keep the project going.
  • Lastly towards a jackpot that anyone participating can win - adds to the excitement!

The decision of the Quiz Master is final (even when he is wrong).

The Quiz Jackpot

The Quiz Jackpot for the random draw is a massive, life-changing amount of money which anyone participating has a chance of winning. It's all a bit of fun at the end of the day.

Some of you may recall that we did something similar when we first started the quiz. The largest jackpot won at that time was £90!. In summary:

  • Each quizzer will receive a raffle ticket.
  • At the end of each quiz – before the winners are announced a winning raffle ticket will be drawn.
  • The person holding that ticket will get the chance to choose one of five envelopes which will contain a 'prize'.
  • The envelopes will have four prizes will include items such as a packet of crisps, a glass of wine, a pint of beer or similar BUT one envelope will hold 'The Jackpot'.
  • The jackpot will start at £10. If that envelope is not chosen, the jackpot will roll over and rise by £10 each quiz until it is won….

Christopher Eadle was our first winner on 25th May. He won £30. Subsequent winners have had the likes of a packet of crisps. What is not to love? Izzy won a large glass of wine at the end of August and Rachel swapped a glass of wine for coke & chocolate, what's not to love. The prizes keep coming ;)

Food Menu

You asked, we listened! At our Quiz Nights we will have a food menu chosen by you. This is available from 6.30 to 9.30pm before and during the Quiz. There is a range of nibbles and sharing platters for you to choose from. Just ask one of the volunteers for information and to order. This is being offered by volunteers and profits will go to the refurbishment of The Swan. The menu varies slightly each time depending upon the availability of local produce. This is now a regular feature of our quiz nights and is popular with the regular quizzers.

Quiz Winners Gallery

Throughout the recent history of The Swan, quiz nights have always been popular. So in September 2019 the quiz was re-launched and was extremely popular. So much so, we decided to make it a regular event. The rogues gallery directly below records the winners history for posterity and for bragging rights too. There can be no argument on who has won when, and how many times - no stories, no fairy tales, no disputes. Click on an image and we will show you more photos if we have them.
