The Georgic: furlongs ahead

If you notice the odd betting slip lying around this welcoming community pub, it's an indication of the passion many of the regulars have for horseracing. There are two Sky boxes, which means when turning over from the classic pop videos on the Vintage channel, they have a choice of the Sky Racing channel and Racing UK. The bar is also popular with football fans, attracting a lively crowd for the Thursday night quiz with its £20 bar-tab prize and half-time bingo with prize beer and a snowball prize getting bigger every week. On Saturday, you can join in a round of Play Your Cards Right or you can ask to have a shot of the dominoes and cards behind the bar. Look out too for fancy dress parties and retro music nights.
