Something’s spreading through the nation like a plague, infecting anyone in its vicinity, and causing turmoil and uproar. Yes, that’s right: football is back. With the World Cup now in full swing, there’s a seemingly never-ending list of places all over the country where you can eat food and watch football. If, however, you’re the sort of person that doesn’t like football, international tournaments can be a bit of a pain in the arse.
If you want somewhere to drink a nice pint where you don’t have to worry about a gammon mansplaining the offside rule to you, you’re not completely out of luck though. I’ve done some scouting (that’s football talk for “drinking”) recently and found some of the best pubs in London that don’t give a damn about football. Yes, Mob, these are the pubs that aren’t showing the football this year. Pick one and settle down to some excellent beer and appealing eats.
