The 2015   Monopoly   Pub Challenge Event

The 2015 Event took place on 15th August 2015 at Banbury.
We may meet at the first pub, which will be The Bell, Middleton Road, although this doesn't open untill midday.
So could meet at The Exchange (Weatherspoons pub) which opens early, say for 'Breakfast'. All to be decided later.

There will be around 19 pubs to be visited on the day and as the majority are pretty near to each other,
could be one curry house visited at the end of the day.

There are trains from Oxford at 12 mins past and 20 mins to every hour to Banbury, with the Oxford bus passing
through Kidlington. Note the last train leaves Banbury for Oxford at 22:00. (Or 22:23 if you want a 90 min journey)

The day started at a nice cafe, where we all meet up for a cooked breakfast. We then proceeded to The Exchange (Wetherspoon) Pub for a quick pre-event drink.

The Mill Arts Centre was closed, so we went instead to the General Foods Club. The Horse & Jockey didn't have any draft beer, so instead went to The Church House.

We also visited The Banbury Cross, which had been missed in the original planning.

There were chip butties waiting at The White Horse, thanks to Mel & Darron for (secretly) organising this, wonderful, it just doesn't get better.

Not too sure whether we all managed to visit the last pub, The Auctioneer.

Great day, thanks to all the attendees.
