Here you will find the Distilled Wisdom of 30 years of Pub Night.
The basic idea of Pub Night is that a group of people (known collectively as the Pub Night Council) meet in pubs to drink beer, play dominos and generally put the world to rights. They are, as you would expect a literate bunch. At the moment, we vote for the venue and date of the next pubnight after last orders. This has been known to descend into chaos, in front of international observers. Three different voting procedures were proposed at one stage to change this to a new kind of computer mediated chaos, but were not taken forward.
Pubnight has just upgraded to the latest stable version of MediaWiki. Hopefully everything is still working!!
The site of The Greyhound is now surrounded by blue wooden screens and new buildings are now going up
The Junction is now being converted into housing.
The Hop Pole has also been converted.
The Fiery Angel which had re-opened as The Fairview and was serving Hobgoblin and Doombar closed and re-opened under yet another name (The Mapleleaf) but did not serve real ale (Boo!!) and has, once again, closed and is for sale.
The Sudeley Arms seems to have simply been re-let and is carrying the same range of beers as before.
"We seem so hell-bent on establishing new 'tradition' that all it takes is for a couple of blokes to get together for a drink in a pub for a few weeks running and before you know where you are people are weaving tapestries of the scene and sticking their fingers in their ear and singing folk songs about it" - Fruit Flies Like a Banana - by Steve Haywood
