Who has a favourite London (or outskirts) pub to watch football on tv (Sky) which also offers a good range of ale of good condition?
Every time a big game approaches I agonise about where to watch.
The Traf has now had to forsake Sky due to price and intransigence of the provider (who will find themselves pricing the package out of an ever increasing number of pubs).
The The Cricketers was good but recently poor ale condition means I've had to give up on that completely.
The Green Dragon is not a bad option, but they are selective about when they provide volume for commentary, and City vs u*&^%d is likely to fill the place with never-been-to-a-match herberts, a common problem around the capital.
Ship is becoming a favourite to throw some comedy darts, and has good tv coverage, but beer is just Fullers, albeit full range (incl HSB) and excellent condition.
George was pretty good for a midweeker recently with a better than usual range of beers.
I considered further out at Willoughby, or Prince of Wales (now 6 or 8 pumps) but just can't decide.
Anyone know of any beery-tv-no idiots jewels out there?
ps. at athe moment, the Blythe may get the nod...
