The Faltering Fullback – Finsbury Park

This pub is something of a sporting institution locally. The Faltering Fullback will be screening every minute of every test match on its big screen in its thankfully well-sheltered and cool sports room. The FF also sports one of the most amazing beer gardens in London, set across dozens of levels, it feels like a tree house and is a great place to grab some rays in between innings.

The Famous Three Kings – Kensington

One of the largest sports bars in London, F3K, as it’s colloquially known, boasts 13 plasma screens, three projector screens and two 3D TV’s. You won’t need to bob your head up to catch a peek at the action with a screen visible from virtually every corner of this legendary sports pub. Normally they show everything from ice hockey to handball, but the Ashes will dominate this summer, and rightfully so.

Freemasons Arms

The Victorian-built Freemasons Arms pub in Covent Garden is a lasting tribute to the founders of the Football Association 150 years ago.

You can also grab a pint of any of their authentic Kentish cask ales or try one of their many international lagers. Freemasons Arms is the Ashes spot for anyone looking for a great meal and a friendly environment.

Zoo Bar Leicester Square

If you’re looking for more of a party scene to mix it up during Ashes action, try the cracking atmosphere of Leicester Square’s Zoo Bar. The soft, warm lights and avant-garde decor suggest it might be a mellower—even funky—place to catch some innings, but once the match heats up, so will Zoo Bar. Before you know it you’ll find yourself on the dance floor celebrating a win like an un-caged animal.

The Alexandra

With four different bars in one, there’s something for every pub-going Londoner at the Alex, a Wimbledon local. The more luxurious roof terrace is a great summer oasis, complete with an open fire, sun canopy and flat screen TV. Green Bar and Lounge Bar have a great pub and dining atmosphere, respectively, but the Sports Bar is where you want to be for game time. With a roll down projector screen and HD plasmas, the Alex is known for its convivial spirit and welcoming crowd.
