They say there are two kinds of people: those who go clubbing and those who go pubbing. We’re from the latter category, so we’ll try to give you reasons why pubs rock. It may be a biased view since we love both football and beer and you won’t find neither in a club.
Sports betters will love this combination since they can place their bets online while watching the game in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.

Did we mention the good ales?
Many pubs are tied houses, meaning they are owned and operated by local breweries. While this restricts the brands of beers you will find a tied house, you will have the chance to taste traditional British ales. They usually sell a guest beer as well, meaning you will have a second option if you don’t like the main ale. If you don’t like what they have, you can simply try another and then another pub until you find the right brewery.
Now, if you are the type who wants a wide range of choices, you can go to a free house, meaning it is free to sell any brand of beer available on the market. They offer lots of draught ales but also bottled options.
There are hundreds of British pubs dedicated to football fans. So, you basically get a few friends, sit around a table with pints of beer in front of you watching live football games on huge TVs. There’s a special bond created between men when they simultaneously cheer for a common favourite team.
While you might not be able to dance, pubs are the perfect place for good music. Some of them are dedicated to rock culture while others prefer a retro theme featuring total legends like Queen, The Beatles and Eurythmics. Anyway, you will definitely find plenty of pubs with modern commercial music if that’s what you prefer.
Believe it or not, there are pubs dedicated to board games, meaning that each table has a certain board game or you can ask the personnel to bring one of your choice, ranging from the popular Monopoly to games like Catan and even Activity.
There are of course pubs for those who prefer classic games like chess and backgammon, but it might be counterproductive to play chess in a place where you can barely hear each other speak because of the loud music, not to mention, how are you going to watch football?
All kidding aside, board games pubs are quite popular in London. Also, some pubs have real vintage games and arcade machines if you want a throwback to the 90s.
To recap, why go to a pub? High quality football on 4K flat screen TVs, traditional delicious ales, good music and fun games should be enough to make you try it out.
