Pub with Sky showing Soccer Saturday

Hi, few of us heading to York next weekend. Have researched a list of pubs we'd like to visit (The Maltings, Pivo Cafe, House of Trembling Madness etc) but would also quite like to spend a few hours on Saturday afternoon somewhere showing Soccer Saturday on Sky Sports News to follow the scores, check on our bets etc.

Any recommendations? Thanks in advance

You may do well in a Wetherspoons or a decent size Greene King pub or similar just look out for the sky sports shown here banners, if you have an area in mind do a search for pubs within x and that quite commonly brings up pub web pages with these kind of details on.

O'Neills would be your best bet. The Northern Wall changed to YO1 but not sure if it changed names again since then. The Windmill near the Premier Inns on Blossom Street has always been good for sport as well.

For the footy you could also try the Bootham Tavern or the White Horse. Both are on Bootham (that's the name of the road), around the corner from York City's ground and only a short walk from the Minster.

And there's 3 pubs I always try and get to when I go to York - the Last Drop Inn, the Three Legged Mare and the Yorkshire Terrier. They are all owned by York Brewery. For directions go on their website: http://www.york-brewery.co.uk/our_pubs.php

Then there's the Guy Fawkes Inn on High Petergate. If the weather is nice there is a nice courtyard out the back you can sit in. They won't have the footy on and neither will the 3 York Brewery pubs but they are worth checking out if you have got time.

And last time I was in York I found a great Wetherspoons called the Punchbowl. It's next to Micklegate and is a 5 minute walk from the railway station. jdwetherspoon.co.uk/home/pubs/the-punchbowl

What was Northern Wall then YO1 is now the Terrace, on corner of Stonebow and Fossgate, and yes it is still a "Sports pub". ring them on 01904674824 to see if they show the match you want.
