Cadogan Arms (Sloane Square, London)
This pub reopened in June 03 with an even stronger sports focus, especially for Welsh rugby, due to the allegiances of the landlord. With BBC Wales, and S4C promised, they are able to screen games not shown elsewhere. The main screen is excellently set up with a little seated area in front for the truly dedicated who arrive 2 hours early, or thought to reserve it. You'll always be able to see a big screen, but if it is too crowded in the main bar the TV in the pool room will save you. Spanish & Italian league games are [more...]

Fox (West Kensington, London)
This place has a deserved reputation as being an international live venue with many bands breaking their chords in the upstairs room. Downstairs it is split between the comfy sofas of the coffee bar area and the big sports section at the back, which also holds a dance floor. The landlord does make a lot of effort and is known to get job lots of equipment for prizes for the Karaoke, pub quiz, etc. so don't be surprised by walking home with a DVD player or two. There are four sound zones overall with the ability to show replays on [more...]

Inn on the Green (Palmers Green Rail, London)
This is a very long, thin pub, split by the bar into two separate areas. There is a giant screen in each area, one high above the entrance and the other well positioned on the furthest wall. There is even a TV between the 2 rooms in case you need it. The pub is Irish run and execute superb split coverage if ever England and Ireland are playing at the same time. Its claim to fame is that it was used to film the Heineken ads (the rugby ones where the guy does a drop goal with a peanut). [more...]

O'Neill's Irish Pub (Putney Bridge, London)
This was the Pharaoh and Firkin, but has wisely kept the great sports set up. A giant screen is in a superb high position in front of the main bar. The 2nd bar on an upper level has another excellent screen. The sun can interfere with the main screen but, check this, remote control blinds. Not surprisingly, this place is no well kept secret, so for Internationals expect to see a queue outside. The only possible way this pub could be improved is to have a TV above the main bar since you can't see one whilst waiting to get [more...]

Vasco de Gama Pub (Vauxhall, London)
As hinted at in the name, this is a curiously successful merging of an English pub and a Portuguese bar. The giant screen is in a great position, angled high in the corner with a TV next to it, in case the sun is getting through the curtains. The area directly under the screen is usually set aside for diners. Most of the tiled floor space is taken up by tables so you can expect to sit, but standing at the bar also provides a decent view. They show 3 Portuguese channels here, including the sport, which made for a [more...]

Callaghans (Piccadilly Circus, London)
Callaghans is a relaxed irish pub with a warm atmosphere. They are building a reputation as the place to watch rugby and other sports in the heart of the city. Even Formula One draws a crowd! The state of the art main screen is truly huge, taking up one whole corner of the main bar. Live entertainment adds to the atmosphere Fri-Sun, with karaoke Mon & Thu. If you don't want to face the struggle home at the end of the night, you can always book yourself in at the Regent Palace Hotel above you and enjoy extended drinking in [more...]

Front Page (Sloane Square, London)
One room with a small bar off to one side and a giant screen high in the corner, angled so that it can be seen from the entire pub. The curtains are drawn for afternoon games to add to the picture quality and atmosphere. Although there are a few seats, this is a standing pub, and all the better for it. Not far from the Cadogan Arms.

Goose (Wandsworth Town, London)
This pub was refurbished in March 2003 with the aim of focusing on sports. It is very spacious, and provides some excellent special features that include TV's in the beer pumps, (and in the toilets), and some Directors Chairs - old fashioned cinema seats for VIP treatment during matches - get there early for a place. There is a small patio in the back and friendly bar staff all around.

Highbury Barn Tavern (Highbury & Islington, London)
The Barn has gone through a few changes to transform it into a smart pub that offers much more than just a pre match beer. The management team that took over in 2003 have also put sport strongly back into the offering. When Arsenal are at home, the pub is fully geared up to ensure that you get served quickly. The big screen is well positioned so that there is a wide viewing arc. However, the low ceiling means that you`ll need to get in early to grab a seat. Top seat in the house has to be on the [more...]

Hobgoblin (Brixton, London)
There is always something going on at the Hobgoblin. The majority of the pub's take is sports related, so they make a lot of effort to get it right. Aside from the usual sports fan base, they have a Spanish and an Italian following and even stretch to showing Tri Nations and Super 12s reruns. The conservatory bar has a fantastic viewing area for the screen, above the stage. The separate, main bar is set up with tables for chatting, a stone floor, weird goblin statues and a pool table tucked in the far corner. The massive beer garden is [more...]
