We are not a sports pub...but do show the main games, premier league, champions league (football) and other main sporting events- this was on our main advertising board before we opened and has since been advertised on social media and also on here.
We were in incredibly busy on Saturday, and were showing the football as they were premier league games. Depending on the call for it (or whether there's anyone in the pub!!) will determine which screens the sport is shown on. On Saturday as we were very busy the second match was shown on both due to demand... This won't always be the case!
In regards to the smokers on the doorsteps - we are currently waiting for some polite signs asking smokers to keep to the benches outside the front and not on the steps, as I totally agree that this is not a warm welcome when you arrive!! The garden will still remain open to smokers.
I really do hope that you try us again, and give us a chance. We'd love to have you back.
