Here you will find the Distilled Wisdom of over 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.

News

Pubnight is now using a responsive theme so it should be a lot more usable on mobile devices - some pages like the town maps have problems in that the map is still too wide but we're working on that.

Cheltenham has another new pub - the The Old Courthouse. It replaces Jamie Oliver's eatery. A small but good range of beers. Company who own it seem to specialise in running pubs in interesting buildings

Next Pub Night
