Stepping into the Hemingford Arms is like walking into Aladdin’s cave. Quirky knick-knacks hang from the ceiling (see if you can spot the stuffed badger) while the walls are lined with retro film and theatre posters. There’s plenty of TVs around the pub so you don’t miss out on the action.

For a bit more exclusivity, head down to Greenwood bar and sports lounge in central London and book a private space to watch the game. The interior is a blend of a common room and library, the atmosphere is lively and friendly. Try the generous match day platter to share with your fellow supporters.

Located on a cobbled street, this East End boozer has a cinema screen in its cellar for major sporting events. You may have to book in advance for a spot downstairs for popular events or you can support your team above ground in the main bar area.
