    Had a fantastic time,everytime a clue lead us to a pub we had a quick half Only downside was the final clue, by the time we got there the place was busy with groups drinking and smoking weed. We since found out the pub opposite (Doctor Duncans) is a fab place and lots of history. Somewhere like this would be a lot safer to finish as it was quite intimidating where we finished.
