The Three Compasses Dalston

The Three Compasses Dalston

Hackney's finest. The Three Compasses boasts a bunch of sizeable drop-down projectors ensuring cops a decent eye full of the action. Being East London, the beer's suitably crafty and the crowd's a bit more relaxed than you might find elsewhere. That said, it still packs a belting atmosphere when full. Well worth a visit.
Greenwood

Greenwood

Tucked away by Victoria station, Greenwood is a life saver for any poor soul with a train to catch. That said, even if you're not waiting for transport, the Greenwood is well worth a visit west for a game - it really is that good. A heap of screens, epic food, some seriously plush decor and freshly brewed beer from Long Arm brewery makes this a real winner.
Carlsberg Sports Bar

Carlsberg Sports Bar

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, all of the beers and a 'make your own burger' facility it basically covers all your needs. It goes without saying that they show sport on TV.
Rileys Sports Bar Haymarket

Rileys Sports Bar Haymarket

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.
Bar Kick

Bar Kick

The best sports bar in East London has a distinctly continental feel to it. As such, Spaniards, Italians and David Luiz regularly flock here for the big games. Why? Big screens, an electric atmosphere, and enough Table Football tables to host an international tournament. The best Happy Hour in town runs from 4-7 EVERYDAY (@£2 bottled beers and £4.85 cocktails) - well worth a visit.
Alexandra

Alexandra

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.
Long Arm Pub and Brewery

Long Arm Pub and Brewery

The place to go for sports fans serious about their beer. All their delicious pints are brewed on site and their two huge projector screens mean a belting atmosphere when it fills up post work.
Euston Flyer

Euston Flyer

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 tip-tip 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.
Belushis and The Dugout

Belushis and The Dugout

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.
Philomena's Irish Sports Bar & Kitchen

Philomena's Irish Sports Bar & Kitchen

Cracking Irish bar in Covent Garden that always delivers a great big game experience. A firm favourite.
