Here you will find the Distilled Wisdom of over 27 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!!

Cheltenham has a totally new pub - the Sandford Park Ale House. It has a rapidly rotating stock of real ales and a significant number of European lager beers on draught as well.

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The Cat & Fiddle has been replaced by flats and the Fox & Hounds has been converted into a Morrisons "Local" super market.

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.

Details on the next Pub Night can be found on the Next Pub Night page. This page is automatically updated when the decision is made ... assuming that someone remembers to let Doctor Tone know.

"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
