Best Sports Bars in Nottingham

Robin Hood, Nottingham's most famous son, stole from the rich and gave to the poor; so too does FANZO seek to help those of us unable to keep up with the spiralling costs of Sky subscription by providing a free service for punters wanting to watch the action in the pub. So if you're in Nottingham, and can't decide where to watch the footy or rugger on match day with rest of your merry men, simply type in where you are and FANZO will direct you to the very best sports bars in the local area. Our free app will also tell you whether the game is being shown in HD, 3D or 5D (OK, maybe not that last one), and crucially what other punters think of the establishment.

Pubs & Bars

Rileys Nottingham


Darts, pool, late night closing times and ginoferous screens are just a few reasons why you should head to Riley's to watch all the big games. There are so many activities available, I just don't know if you'll have enough time. With cheap booze and great food to boot, there's not a lot more you could ask for, except a hot tub and bikini clad waitresses maybe...but seriously, if you're stuck for ideas, ring up your mates and get down to Riley's for match days. You'd be silly not to.

The Trent Navigation Inn


Real ale drinkers in Nottingham have an absolute gem on their very doorstep in the Trent Navigation Inn. Stylishly furnished inside, this fine Victorian stocks 13 real ales, some of them brewed by their own fair hands on site. They are big on their cricket and will be hosting special Ashes deals throughout the summer including a full English breakfast to set you up for a day of pleasant pints with the sound of wood, willow and anguished Aussies going on in the background. Well worth a visit.

Beechdale (Nottingham)


After a sprucing up in the summer of 2019, this has become a real destination for sports fans to watch the action on brand new 4K TVs, installed throughout, and a new outdoor seating area has been added too. It also has a new games room installed with pools tables, darts boards, a boxing machine and pinball machines. Great entertainment.
