|Pubs are no longer just drinking establishments, these days they are also a social setting for activites and pub games, such as darts and quiz nights. Here we give you the low down on the different types of pub games and pub activities you can expect to see going on in UK pubs.
A number of different traditional games are played in pubs, such as darts, dominoes, billiards, card games, shove ha’penny, and even skittles. More recently, the game of pool, both British and American versions, has also become a popular fixture in many pubs. Although most of the time these games are just played for fun while you enjoy your pint of beer, some pubs have darts team, billiard teams and pool teams, which play against other local pub teams either in a league or a knockout competition. The winners usually walk away with a trophy and sometimes cash too.
Nowadays, most pubs in the UK play music, the main exceptions being JD Wetherspoon pubs, and this sets a relaxed and sociable tone in the pub for young and old alike. In addition to this many pubs hold weekly pub quizzes, with the pub quiz questions usually based on general knowledge, music or recent world events. Usually, each team will pay a few pounds to take part in the pub quiz and at the end, the winning pub quiz team will receive all that cash. Other pub activities that prove popular with the Great British public include karaoke nights, video games, and sports coverage on big screen televisions. However, some pubs also have their own football, rugby and cricket teams, made up of regular pub patrons, that play in amateur local leagues.
