Can anyone recommend any bars near London Bridge for watching Champions League games - it seems like there are lots of great bars in the area, but it's hard to tell over the net if they show sports or not. Anywhere with a good atmosphere that also serves food would be great.

Hi Steph

The Old King's Head has a huge screen that always seems to be showing sports.

I like the place as it's off the high-street and easily overlooked by tourists.

The Woolpack will be showing the Champions League games and normally has a decent atmosphere. I was in there for the Liverpool v Arsenal game although being a Boro fan I don't have much interest in the Champions League ;-)

Slightly off topic but Suchard on Crucifix Lane also show Setanta games, for my future reference does anyone know anywhere else around SE1 showing Setanta games?

Might be a bit far but The Duke of York on Borough road does food and footy.
