London’s biggest sports bar boasts all the facilities you would expect from a venue this size. 35 screens dot the 600 capacity pub alongside English and American pool tables, foosball, and a particularly fun and riotous atmosphere during the big games. To add to the structure of the place; Riley’s serves up some good, honest, great value food (enormous portions for under a tenner) and there are few faults to be found with the burgers and onion rings if you’re tempted.
Not a single fault to find with this old and beautiful pub on Clapham Common which is known to be a bit of a haunt for supporters of all things Irish. Little to elaborate when it comes to the 2 HD projectors and 4 plasma screens across 2 floors; the pub also has a heated beer garden, table tennis tables, and foosball to keep you entertained pre-game, post-game, and half-time. Always a cracking atmosphere during the footy or rugger and if you’re planning to spend an evening; the Thai food is really excellent.

It turns out Carlsberg do Sports bars...and they are pretty bloody fantastic. To be found in the Empire Casino on Leicester Square, this is well worth a visit even if you're not living close. With free entry, copious amounts of booze and a 'make your own burger' facility it basically covers all your needs. It goes without saying that they show sport on TV.
Definitely the most traditional of the best sports pubs in London, the Flyer is a Fuller's pub, so good ale is a prerequisite. Perhaps surprisingly for such a large pub, the food is scrummy with the pies a big hit. Located between Euston and King's Cross, it's the perfect spot to catch sport on the big screen before running off to catch a train.
In Fulham lies the last of our best London Sports Pubs. The Southern Belle sits just around the corner from Craven Cottage and the welcoming nature of local football club Fulham is perfectly reflected in the venue. All the best live sport on TV with plenty of activities to pass the time when the TV's off - American Pool tables, private Karaoke rooms, live DJs on Friday, and Saturdays, as well as a scrumptious and regularly changing menu. A pub that's more than worth a visit any day of the week!

Belushis in London Bridge have re-branded their sports offering and have created 'The Dugout'. Down in their basement they've curated any sports fan's dream with a themed American sports bar littered with screens (17!), table fussball, beer pong, all the sharing platters your belly could desire etc etc. The Dugout's real x-factor comes in their unique position to screen sport and serve drinks late into the night and early in the morning, making this a must for people looking to watch US/Australasian sports. Will be an utterly vital venue come the next Ashes tour down under.
SO MUCH craft beer, a genuinely amazing garden (including crazy golf) and located on the edge of the dreamy Victoria Park in Hackney. Whilst the PPT doesn't have Sky or BT, I can't think of many places I'd rather be to watch some fine sporting action taking place on terrestrial telly. Get down for a Sunday roast, a can of something rare and a glorious afternoon spent sunning yourself in the garden.
