A charming local tour of the best secret and extinct drinking holes in Bath, cleverly constructed as round after round of light-hearted pub quiz questions. The tour ends with prizes for the winning team in the cosy confines of one of Bath's best loved pubs.

A very interesting and fun evening. A lovely balance between an evening of culture and socialising. The quiz element is light-hearted and engaging. I will definitely be going along with more friends in the future.

I think it was about £9 each but may have been a special price as it was advertised as part of a Bath Festival
