  Introducing: Neill Maguire

I run a pub quiz each week in my pub The Kings Arms in Cornwall. I write and present them myself. I have attached one for you if you would like I can send you more. Each quiz consists of 15 pictures; a music section and general knowledge….”

After looking at Neill’s Pub Quiz, I’ve invited him to send as many as he likes because I think everyone will like them. What Neill offers is a well thought out quiz with a picture round; a music round and some general Knowledge questions as well.

If you want to learn more about Neill and The Kings Arms. Click on the picture of his pub on the left. If you’re visiting the Lands End region of Cornwall, what could be better than calling at the Kings Arms at St. Just for lunch or dinner! Even better, call in on a Wednesday evening and join in the popular quiz whilst you’re there.

I love Cornwall and I’ll be taking a look for myself next time I’m down there.

I’ll be adding Neill’s quizzes to the blog as he sends them to me. Watch out for the Kings Arms category in the blog section. Jim
