LYME’S new trendy pub and restaurant, the Pilot Boat, is launching weekly quiz nights, starting from Thursday, September 27, to run throughout the winter months.
The quiz will be for teams of two and more with free entry and a £100 jackpot prize every week. There will also be a cash prize for the winning team and a booby prize for the team that comes bottom on the night.
The Pilot is also looking for a quiz master to take ownership of the initiative and other volunteers who would like to help with compiling the quizzes, etc. Anyone interested should pop into the Pilot Boat to discuss their possible involvement.
The Palmers-owned pub and restaurant, with a 95-seater air conditioned restaurant, bar and terrace, opened its doors after a £1 million-plus refurbishment in June and has proved extremely popular, especially with visitors. The pub also has three well-appointed letting rooms.
With the season drawing to a close, the Pilot is introducing a full programme of promotions and live music nights.
Popular singers Grace Gillan and Jake Miller and Adam Sweet will appear on alternate Wednesday evenings, 8.30pm to 10.30pm, with two cocktails for £10 between 8pm and 10pm.
The quiz nights with the £100 jackpot prize will take place on Thursdays and there will also be live music on ‘Fizzy Fridays’ (9pm to 11.30pm) when a bottles of prosecco will be on offer for £15 between 5pm and 7pm.
Sunday evenings have been designated as ‘Cheesy Sunday’ with a bottle of wine and cheese platter available for £25 between 7pm and 10pm.
Other events throughout the winter are being planned, the details of which will be announced on the LymeOnline website.
If anyone has any ideas for events, they are welcome to call into the Pilot Boat to discuss with licensee Robin Collyns, who runs with pub with his wife Angela and son Ben.
