The Abingdon Invitation Cribbage Cup.

During a lunchtime visit to the Vine Inn in Cumnor, my attention was taken by a large silver trophy that had pride of place on the mantle of what was once a large fireplace. The trophy is the Abingdon Invitation Cribbage Cup.

Cribbage is a pub game that ranks up there in popularity with darts and Aunt Sally. You will hear players saying things like '15 two and fours a pair' as they move pegs round a board.

There is a league of pubs and clubs from Abingdon and surrounding villages that compete for this trophy. Previous winners (before the Vine) include The Prince of Wales at Shippon, and the Saxton Arms in Abingdon.
