Pubs & Bars

Punch Tarmey's


Traditional Irish bar that boasts gorgeous decor - think whiskey barrels, chesterfield sofas and booths - and a belting atmosphere come kick off. Throw in beer brewed literally metres away at Cairns Brewer and you've got an excellent place to settle down for the match and beyond.

The Birkey


Cracking pub in Crosby that's serious about sport, boasting 18 screens and 2 drop down projectors.

Arkles (Liverpool)


Iconic boozer on the Anfield Road, Arkles is a local institution. A great place to watch any game, it's a special place to be whenever Liverpool are on TV.

Shooters Bar


Bigger is certainly better when it comes to Shooters. A bazillion (approximately) screens, awesome happy hour offers every weekday plus all the sport you could wish for make this a huge favourite. Plenty of pool tables and some great value grub mean it's a fine spot to hang out in the off chance they have no major sport on that tickles your fancy.

Flanagans Apple Restaurant


Charming old Irish pub on Mathew Street. Once inside it boasts more varnished wood, HD screens and exceptional value pub grub than you might think humanly possible. A great place to find yourself whenever there's a big game about to kick off.



The iconic Crown Hotel is one of the first things you'll see upon exiting Liverpool Lime Street. Inside you'll find a range of drink from craft ale to cocktails, great value pub grub and all the sport you could wish to watch. Well worth a visit whenever there's a big game on the box.

Jolly Miller (West Derby)


With a giant multi-screen display wall beaming all the action live, you won't get a better view of the match anywhere in the city outside of the stadium itself. If the atmosphere is throbbing as it does and the place is busy, you'll always be able to watch on one of the other singular HD screens that populate this massive sports bar.
