Bangkok Nightlife

The Best Pub Quiz in Bangkok

If there’s one thing you could think of that reminds ex-pats of being back home and having a laugh out with their friends down their local pub, it might well be a traditional Pub Quiz. Well, if it’s a pub quiz you’re craving in Bangkok, you’re in luck, because there are several really great and popular options with ex-pats from the West living in Thailand. In this post, we’ll show you the best ones and why.

The Royal Oak Bangkok Pub Quiz

The weekly Wednesday pub quiz night has now returned thankfully after the pandemic restrictions were eased. It starts at 8 pm and runs until 10 pm and boasts a top cash prize of 1000 Baht beer voucher for the winner and a 500 Baht beer voucher for the runner. Make sure to call early to reserve a table as this is probably the most popular quiz night in Bangkok and every single table upstairs and downstairs is usually full.

For over 20 years, the Royal Oak Bangkok pub has been a very popular ex-pat pub tucked away down Sukhumvit 33/1. It’s not the biggest British pub in Bangkok, nor is it the cleanest or the most fancy, but it just has that feeling of a real pub, albeit one with an open-air front that makes it easy for smokers who are sitting near the entrance to puff away. It has proper British pub-style wooded long tables that cater perfectly for groups of up to ten or so people. The seating is benches, regular chairs, small stools and larger bar stools if you decide to sit away from the smoking area in the middle of the pub. It also has an upstairs with its own small bar for a quieter experience.
