"Football’s coming home, it’s coming home…"

Here are our favourite places to watch FIFA World Cup 2018...


Kid friendly - Arnos Arms, Arnos Grove, N11
Closest tube: Arnos Grove tube station

Why this place wins... 
The Arnos Arms serves the best burgers in north London (allegedly). 

Not so kid friendly - Haunt London, Stoke Newington, N16
Closest tube: Dalston Kingsland (overground)

Why this place wins?
Free entry all night and serves “filthy vegan junk food”. We’re very much intrigued by the jackfruit wingz…


Kid friendly - Boxpark, Crowdon, CR0
Closest station: East Croydon Train Station

Why this place wins?
There are a dozen food stalls and alternative entertainment options available; Boxpark offers something for everybody!

Not so kid friendly - Zlatan’s World Cup 2018 Popup, SW4

Closest tube: Clapham

Why this place wins?
Although not screening every match of the tournament, this quirky popup promises an electric atmosphere “Zlatans style”. Expect trumpets, football sing-alongs and a stadium atmosphere…


Kid friendlyPitch, Stratford, E15
Closest tube: Stratford

Why this place wins?
Pitch offers (mostly) free entry to the bar during the games and an option to reserve certain areas of the venue, perfect for big groups. Plus, the food options include dishes inspired from Korea, Venezuela and Brazil… perfect to get into the international theme!

---Disclaimer *Kid friendly until 8pm*

Not so kid friendly - Rusty Bike, Mile End E3
Closest tube: Mile End

Why this place wins?
Quite simply, it’s very close to the tube station, has free entry and serves the best Thai green curries in East London!


Kid friendly - Merchant square, Paddington, W2
Closest tube: Paddington

Why this place wins?
Although not screening every World Cup match, surrounded by a diverse range of food stalls, shops and restaurants, it’s the perfect place to enjoy a family day out with the World Cup thrown in as a bonus!

Not so kid friendly - Ealing Park Tavern, Ealing, W5
Closest tube: Hanger Lane

Why this place wins?
Because they have an incredible beer selection complementing the international World Cup spirit perfectly.


Kid friendly - The Tokenhouse, Moorgate, EC2R
Closest tube: Moorgate

Why this place wins?
This family friendly gastro pub provides a calm oasis away from the hubbub of Central London. Whilst not so family friendly, for a post-match escape you may want to have a drink in the Cellar Bar/speakeasy.

Not so kid friendly - Tropicana Beach Club, Covent Garden, WC2B
Closest tube: Covent Garden

Why this place wins?
The tropical theme is a far cry from what the weather will be like in Russia, but the bar is fun to visit pre and post-match hosting nightly beach games, beer pong with great drinks deals and a party atmosphere!
