Have watched a couple of games in here but only out of desperation at finding somewhere close to the station at short notice. Lots of screens but not the best atmosphere and quite expensive

Not sure if this place is heaven or hell... On the one hand, it shows all manner of sporting events and you're pretty much guaranteed to be able to watch any football match that's on. You're hard pressed not to be able to see a screen either, as they're everywhere (including in front of your face in the urinals). On the other hand, the clientele can be pretty moronic, the beer's expensive pish, there's a perfume bloke in the bogs, the bouncers are unpleasant, the food is dire and the women staff have to wear creepily skimpy uniforms. Also, they weirdly play loud chart music over the analysis in big matches, only turning the TV sound on for the game itself. That said, a useful Place Of Last Resort if you can't find a pub showing your match.

Loads of screens covering just about every sport imaginable as well as a good selection of American style beers. Also have some good pool tables (though be prepared to part with that hard earned cash). The downside is the tourist "townies" that turn up from outside London! Also don't bother coming here just to play foosball, the tables are pretty much falling apart!

Yep, they've got the sports bit covered with loads of screens so you can be sure you'll be able to see the game you want. But with all the pool and table football it does have the feel of a big chain bowling alley. Not sure what the atmosphere is like for big matches as there's been queues of tourists outside when I've tried to go before, due to its prime central location.

The positives; millions of screens showing every sports channel or in fact every single sport ever invented, live, all the time! Table football and pool tables are a nice touch (although very pricey!). Negatives; general lack of atmosphere/vibe, attracts tourists (probably the intention), no way anyone would visit this pub without the sports, which is never a good sign.
