EUROS? Mungos I call them, etc.

The question as old and well-worn as this clip - where do you go in Brockley if you want to watch the football? In 2010 we organised a drink-up at the Wickham. If (when) England get through the group stage, we'll try to do the same again, but in the mean time, please use this thread to discuss where to watch tonight's game.

Ravensbourne Arms. Great pub and it has a TV (albeit small).

Does anyone know if the Jack has screens / is showing the football?

Anonymous said...

Unless the Jack have got a screen recently specifically for the euros they won't be showing it.

The Talbot has 2 screens, one upstairs.

Hah hah no point going to the barge as the TV is broken.. this has resulted in a large group of neolithic dense people standing around grunting drinking their stella wondering what to do

Oh have they really broken in the Barge? Was planning to watch the game there

Trolling I suppose - The Barge has two screens and a good cross mix of the community.

A good cross mix of the community... really more like care in the community

If you want to lynch an Italian, well, I'm planning to go to the Wickham arms....

Italy vs England! Brilliant!

who are you backing Max?

Since Fabio Capello left it's got to be Italy.

BTW, I don't normally blow my own professional trumpet, but I designed the Mascots for the championship.

Another and more difficult question: where do you in Brockley if you want to avoid the football, avoid the television, and just have a decent pint of beer in peace?

Almost every (every?) pub seems to have a damned TV screen blaring out some unnecessary something or other.

The Ladywell Tavern doesn't have a TV.

Nor does the Orchard does it? Or the Gantry?

Brockley Nick said...

Where are all the pubs with loud music and TVs in Brockley?

The Talbot, The Orchard, The Gantry hardly ever have the telly on.

The Royal Albert has one on sometimes, usually with the volume down, just so people can keep an eye on the football scores.

Jam Circus, Mr Lawrence, Ladywell Tavern - don't think they have a telly between them?

The Barge - a no music policy, but tellies on quite often.

The Wickham - tellies and an overpowered jukebox.

Sounds like a pub for every mood.

Yes, but mostly with the sound off and subtitles on. Unlike the Talbot on Sunday which allows their barstaff to impose their musical selections on the punters. Irritating when you are one of four people in there, all trying to read.

Btw no mention of the Gandry's temporary closure?

Anonymous said...

The Gantry's temporary closure is ridiculous. Till problems, what's wrong with accepting cash only and using a money box? That place would have been rammed for the football, but instead they are turning away trade. Seems a bit weird.

@Annon at 13.30 - Where are you going to the pub? It's almost impossible to find somewhere to watch sport round these parts (in particular Sky Sports)

Brockley Nick said...

@Max - did you really design Jedward? Very cool if so.

max said...

I did indeed.

THNick said...

Jam Circus has (had?) a big screen. I went there a couple of years back hoping to catch the Test match and they had f***ing Wimbledon on.

Crofton Park Gooner said...

The Chandos has a big screen and always shows the football as does the General Napier a bit further up the road.

Heading towards Forest Hill you have The Railway Telegraph, Bird in Hand and All bar one (but no sound). Back in the day everywhere would show the football. Sadly, some of these places no longer exist such as the Forest Hill Hotel and the Place House Tavern.

@THNick - No screen in Jam Circus anymore (or for quite some time)

@Brockley Nick
The Talbot, Royal Albert and Ladywell Tavern all have loud music. The Orchard, Jam Circus and the Gantry can hardly be called pubs. Where is the local pub without loud music or a TV?
A good selection of real ales at reasonable prices, no TV, no music (or music you can talk over across a table without shouting) and, ideally, a bar billiards table. That will do me. But I can't think of one closer than Deptford.
