Best Pubs and Sports Bars for Live F1

Since coverage was split between BBC and Sky, the number of punters choosing to watch F1 in the pub keeps growing. Here's a list of what we think are the best pubs showing Formula 1 in London. They all have Sky Sports F1 HD so have the ability to show all races but you may want to click on their profiles and check out their upcoming sports schedule. If you're not in London, fear not! You can either check out our full list of pubs showing F1 for the next Grand Prix or visit our friends over at F1 in Pubs who organise meet ups for the races across the country.

Belushis Camden

Belushis Camden

North London, Camden. Belushis Bars and Hostels have a strong following amongst the antipodean community of London, mostly down to their early morning openings and wide range of sporting action on the TV. Their Camden Bar is as good as any to catch the F1, with it's 7am opening time ensuring that, even on a Sunday, you don't have to miss the live action from the Far East. Licensing laws prevent any booze going down the gullet before 11, but that shouldn't put you off!
