Can't find a pub showing the match? Don't give up and go home until you've tried here. With about 15 different screens and feeds from sports channels across the globe it's a pretty fair bet they'll be showing your game of choice. And on big nights, one of the staff comes around regularly to tell you the scores of other matches, too. If that wasn't enough to keep you occupied, a pool table, air hockey table, a labyrinthine layout and a video jukebox are there to amuse too. It's like a pub based on the inside of a teenage boy's brain. Although there are always some guest ales, it's hardly a place for the quiet contemplation of them. If it is your cup of tea, it's a full-on, hyperactive sort of place and one of the best sports bars around. Oh, it also has a late licence.

Recently got a new landlord / manager - the fellow from Bridgend (?) that used to run Chelsea's Cadogan Arms. Serves decent beers but you do need to ask for top ups and 'no ice' quite often. Fantastic atmosphere on Rugby match days, most especially if you are Welsh and homesick.

Nice enough place on the inside and so easy to get to being right next door to the tube station - more of a Bar then a pub However be very careful about ordering a soft drink there - they totally fill up the entire glass to the very top with ice first and then pour in the soft drink - by far the most watery cola I've had in London in years and quite expensive. So using the words "No Ice" before every order is very important here.



Also their overhead signs says there are two for one deals available everyday and when we went there at 6pm on a Saturday - there was a single sheet of A4 paper just printed off with a very short list of food available saying sports day menu. The pub is known for showing sports all day, everyday so this could be a permanent menu for all we know. The burger and chips tasted good and was served in quite a nice space saving plate. However the quickly done up menu didn't explain it contains bacon, etc in it either which Jewish or Muslim customers especially might appreciate to know in advance before placing their orders..



Also the wait to be served is very long. When we went there it wasn't all that busy - just 6pm on a Saturday with no major games happening but the staff that were there took forever to serve you and when they did you had to repeat your order several times as they were not native speakers of English, so you struggled a bit to get your order in. This could be such an amazing place to visit on a regular basis but it's all let down by bad service and trying to squeeze every last penny out of the customer for the least amount of effort.
