Bars Showing The World Cup With Outdoor Space
Picture the scene; it's the height of mid-summer, England have just thrashed another unworthy opponent, and now you can step outside and enjoy a few drinks in the scorching sunshine. Okay so it might be a little optimistic, but we've put together a list of the best bars showing the World Cup with some much needed outdoor space in London.
The Dickens Inn is one of the most beautiful pubs you'll visit, thanks to its beautiful outside space with views of St Katherine Docks. And inside it's equally as charming, with a traditional interior with antique furniture, a selection of well-kept ales on the bar, and five large flat-screens TVs to catch the games.
Watching the World Cup in London is all well and good, but after you see the fantastic sight of England scoring a goal, you'll want other views to accompany it. Meet Lockhouse, a cool industrial bar that not only serves up award-winning burgers, craft beers, and TVs to catch all the action, you've got views of the Grand Union Canal to boot.
This cosy East London boozer has its traditional charm and fun party atmosphere at the same time. A favourite for watching the sport, there's GoneBurger food in the kitchen to keep your belly happy, and as a bar showing the World Cup in London with outdoor space, its alfresco area is normally a hit too.
Green Goose are showing all the World Cup games outside in their gorgeous beer garden, letting you soak up both the action and the sun. But if the weather doesn't hold, you can always head inside, where they'll show it on two big screens alongside craft beer and delicious grilled dishes.
The Cow already has that football atmosphere going for it, thanks to being located just opposite the Olympic Park and so close to West Ham's stadium. But add in a wonderful array of food, beer, and wine, as well as a compact but comfortable outside space to escape out into, and you've got a good time.
The Coat and Badge is an old school pub sitting just off Putney High Street. While it's a favourite for people watching football in London thanks to its charming interiors, delicious food, and a wide range of wines and ales, their outdoor space becomes a hotspot come the summer.
