Camden Head

This is a great place to come on a weekend if you want to enjoy watching your team play during the day, and then in the evening head into the function room which hosts live music, club nights and comedy events every night of the week.

  1. 100 Camden High St, NW1 0LU. 0207 485 4019.

Compton Arms

This is a normally a quiet neighbourhood pub, but its location, a stone’s throw from the Emirates Stadium, means football is popular. Arsenal games take priority, but otherwise the owners try to screen as many of the top fixtures as possible.

  1. 4 Compton Avenue, N1 2XD. 0207 359 6883.

Faltering Fullback

This local Irish pub (local if you’re in Finsbury Park, that is) screens many of the top Premiership and Championship games in their barn-like back room with picnic table seating. Rugby can take precedence over the round-ball game, so bear that in mind when there are international matches scheduled.

  1. 19 Perth Rd, N4 3HB

Sports Bar & Grill Marylebone

The best Premiership games are broadcast here on HD LED screens, with the option to dine while you watch. Off to Wembley? Marylebone is en route, making this bar an ideal pre- and post- game drinking and dining venue.

  1. Melcombe Place, NW1 6JJ. 0207 723 8890.
  2. Baker Street tube

The Duke of Edinburgh in Brixton has two big screens and one projector. Not only do they show all sky sports and terrestrial football games, they also show the NFL games on Sundays, and the Thanksgiving day games.

The Anthologist is an awful pub to watch sport in? Its always rammed and takes 30minutes to get to the bar at busy times.
