Beer and intelligence are two words that don't often go together - unless, of course, you're talking about pub trivia nights. Trivia is an ideal way to beat the mid-week boredom by getting together with a few friends for a drink or two, a good pub meal and a chance to test your general knowledge.


[ADVERT]Finding a good trivia night is not an easy thing to do, but once you've found the right one, you'll never stray again. The perfect trivia set-up needs just the right atmosphere to make for a good night out

It needs decent crowds, but not too many that you're never a chance of winning, and none of those teams that seem like they've come straight from a Mensa meeting. Decent prizes like bar tabs or bottle shop vouchers, plus the obligatory jackpot questions, don't hurt either.

Pub Trivia
Bar tabs make great prizes.

You just need to remember a few simple rules: keep your iPhone in your pocket (where's the fun in cheating?), a funny team name is mandatory, try your best not to start fights with the rest of your team, start buttering up the quizmaster, and let the fun begin.

But where is Sydney's best pub trivia night?

Here at WeekendNotes we've reviewed plenty of pubs that offer fun trivia nights, such as Newtown's Marlborough Hotel, Ramsgate's The Intersection Tavern, Side Bar right next to Central Station, and the Rose Hotel in Chippendale.


Other Sydney pubs also have good reputations when it comes to trivia, including the Golden Barley Hotel, The London Hotel in Paddington, and the Local Taphouse.

But I'm sure you've got your favourite venue, so tell us about it. Where is Sydney's best pub trivia night?

The White Cockatoo Hotel, Petersham. This quiz has been filling the pub for over 15 years with the same quiz master and a great selection of questions covering TV, Movies, Music, Geography, History, Sport, Current Affairs and General Knowledge. The bistro offers a large selection of schnitzels as well as the usual pub fare. Prizes are vouchers for the bottle shop and bistro as well as bottles of wine and a cash jackpot. The hotel is opposite Petersham station on the Parramatta Road side (Terminus Street) and the quiz starts around 8pm.
