What is the best pub near Highbury & Islington tube station with Sky Sports ?

Normal pub where you don't have to book, to watch the Manchester derby Saturday 5.30.
Thanks.

    Is that the pub they named after you? 
  • I looked at both those pubs websites yesterday & they both had book a table option.
    This was why I asked the question, because I wondered if they would be all poncy and full of hipsters knitting yoghurt.
    Planning on watching the Manchester derby then off to Alexandra Palace to see Idles.
  • The famous cock always has sky sports on on a Saturday. Then head to Le mercury for dinner - one of my fave London restaurants just up the road.

    Why not drink in Finsbury Park then get a train from there?

    Good call. Should I start a new thread :smile: or do you have a better suggestion for Finsbury Park ?

    Opposite is The Blackstock Arms, although I am certain they do not show the football.

    The Twelve Pins is 2 minutes walk from the tube station.


  • Good call Gary, in the 12 pins. Large screen & other TVs.
