Durell Arms

Durell Arms

South West London, Fulham. Down in SW6, The Durell Arms have been purveyors of fine wines and the good times since 1868. They�re no strangers to the art of quality thirst quenching, nor to the business of live football on TV. They show all the big games on a projector and the little ones on their plasma TVs. It�s a great spot for the evenings with an extensive (NB. Not expensive!) wine list, a new and improved cocktail menu and plenty of Cask Marque certified ales.
George

George

Central London, The Strand. A classic, traditional, tudor-looking pub on the Strand that has been showing football live on TV since 1723 (you get the drift). Filled with a pleasant mix of lawyers, tourists and good old plain sports fans, the George has a super range of ales, lagers and other drinks served by the pint as well as any else you could possibly fancy.
Seven Oaks

Seven Oaks

A legendary pub in the heart on Manchester showing all the footer you could imagine. As well as having a projector screen to show the epic clashes on, they've got a couple of 4K screens in the pub too. If that's not enough, they're one of the only pubs in the area to still have a Pinball machine - Unbelieve Jeff.
Masons Arms

Masons Arms

North London, Kensal Green. This luscious, rustic pub in Kensal Green is a laid back, quasi-gastro pub with a great sport offering and a great atmosphere on match days. With big screens inside and a multi-platform beer garden complete with outdoor TVs out back, it's one of the best pubs for football in all seasons. Recommended for a lazy Super Sunday afternoon...
World's End

World's End

North London, Finsbury Park. Just a few minutes walk from the Emirates Stadium, The World's End has been servicing the football fans of north London for years. Tastefully decorated, the pub is much more welcoming than the other footie mad pubs in the area, while the side hall with its projector screen is one of the best sports to catch the football in all of London. Plastic pints are a necessary evil on Arsenal home game days. The homemade burgers are delicious and fairly priced.
Alexandra

Alexandra

South West London, Clapham Common. This traditional London pub could, but should NOT be mistaken for an dingy old man's Irish boozer. It's one of the best haunts for sports fans in south London. It does get very busy but the upstairs area may offer relief to the slightly fainter of heart. All Premier League games possible are shown as well as a smattering of the best action from Europe's finer leagues. It's also surely one of London's best rugby pubs to boot.
Tib St Tavern

Tib St Tavern

Legendary footy spot in the heart of Manchester's hip Northern Quarter, the Tib St always boasts an excellent atmosphere.
Rileys Sports Bar Haymarket

Rileys Sports Bar Haymarket

Being the largest sports bar in London, there is a lot to say for an afternoon spent in front of one of its 34 TVs, beer in hand. With added extras like pool tables and ping pong as well as an American style diner and live DJ nights; this is one of the ultimate sport watching locations.
Belushis and The Dugout

Belushis and The Dugout

One of the newest sports bars in the city, The Dugout continues the Belushis franchise in excellent style, with a sports themed venue and excellent facilities like beer pong and pool for half-time fun. Boasting a wide selection of premium beers and cocktails to sip on whilst watching the games on one of the many big screens, this has got to be one of the best venues on game day.
Belushis Bath

Belushis Bath

Centrally located hostel that's popular with travellers and students. 9 screens plus two drop down projectors deck out their bar meaning you've always got a great view of the action. The party vibe spills over into the sports viewing meaning there are always plenty of themed events - think fancy dress Super Bowl parties, Burger and Boxing nights, for example - to sink your teeth into.
