Anticipation this year will be higher than ever now that Andy Murray finally broke his Wimbledon duck following his Flushing Meadows success in 2012.
Our landlords update their pub profiles themselves so if a pub is down as showing the annual strawberry eating, Pimms drinking competition from SW19, it sure as hell will be on! As soon as each day's playing schedule is released, pubs are able to choose individual match-ups, letting you know exaclty what is on and where, so if you're after a particular head to head, you should find specific options as well.
If you're still stuck for a place to watch, here are three recommendations:
The Slug in Wimbledon: Just by the the and train station lies he Slug, a friendly and lively pub with a definite southern hemisphere influence. They're big on their sport (and their beer!), and offer the perfect place to wind down after a day's play before you catch the train home.
The Durrel Arms in Fulham: Quiet, relaxed and welcoming, this Fulham institution has developed a reputation for annual events like Wimbledon in recent years. They pull out all the stops; not only will they show the big matches on their projector screen, but, on Monday evening, they've even got a Wii tennis tournament to get going with - Ace!
The Burlington near Oxford Circus: One for you fellas/ladies who are after a bit of retails therapy or a quiet drink after work in the West End. To its great credit, the Burlington is not known throughout the land as a bona fide sports pub, given it doesn't show Sky Sports every waking hour. When there's a key tournie on, however, they dust off the cobwebs and welcome allcomers with an outstanding selection of beers, ales, wines and - you guessed it - Pimms to lap up in the sunshine!
