Fulfil your inner geek’s every desire at thinking bob pub quiz nights

Home of London’s ultimate pub quiz!

What would be your specialist subject on Mastermind? Are you a maths mogul? A film nerd or a history buff?

Or do you just pride yourself on your skill with plasticine and tin foil?

If the answer is ‘yes, yes, YES!’ to any of the above, then join us for a night of nerdy fun and friendly new people.

Thinking Bob pub quiz in London

Not one but THREE types of quiz nights!


We divide the group into a few teams of five – you’ll be sat with a mixture of new and long-standing members and you’ll have a picture round to get you talking.

Buzzer quiz night London - thinking bob

We’ll keep things moving with some of our infamous buzzer rounds (fastest finger first!), video rounds and more puzzling questions to work out on your question sheets. Then out comes the tin foil/plasticine and we’ll get you to create something of our choosing to show off your creative side…


As the name suggests, our gameshow quizzes are more energetic than our usual pub quiz nights.

We’ll divide the group into two big teams, with each team taking it in turns to choose from one of four rounds.

Choose wisely… the harder the game, the more points you’ll collect for your team.

  • Be creative: can you get a message to your team using only your creativity? Or are you just good at drawing stick men? Let’s find out…
  • Chatterbox: either talk for 60 seconds on a topic of our choosing without hesitation, repetition or deviation, or battle it out in a Word War with a member of the opposing team.
  • IQ showdown: fact or fiction? Decide between your team for a big bobbing point.
  • Break a leg: act out your given topic using either your own body parts, or your team mate’s. Easy? Er, no. Funny? Oh yes!

We’ll also throw in a few surprises along the way to keep you on your toes…

Oh and not forgetting drinking bob afterwards, when we’ll get to know each other a bit more.

Our members say…

“Pub quizzes are the best nights for banter, smack talk and general knowledge. They are some of the fun-est nights out I have had!”
