Quick heads up - Spoke to the landlord at the Hope on Whitfield Street, W1 (near Goodge St tube) earlier today and he confirmed that the SL Grand Final will defo be on with sound. This is likely to be upstairs if there is a big crowd in for football (Man U) but if not it may be on downstairs - so check both!

Decent ale? I might be tempted down to Fitzrovia if there is.

Not valid there, but there are a couple of places nearby you can stop off before or afterwards for a free pint: http://www.freedrink...hp?Code=W1T 2AJ

Bump - would recommend that anyone thinking of coming should try and get there early (i.e. before the football starts) as this will help show that we have good enough numbers to justify having the match on the main screen downstairs

For info - This game will be on downstairs straight after the SA v NZ RU finishes at about 5.50

Good choice of pub Lobby - I'm only sorry about the result. I was tempted to pronounce "Who's Lobbygobbler" but thought better of it. I ruled out Quins and Northampton RU shirts and Juventus hoodie. As a non Sky subscriber I'll be back.

I was sat/stood near the back in a group of four blokes (supporting Wire naturally), next to the RU guys. Must apologise for missing the first two mins, but it was better to wait for RU to finish and have it on the bigger screens downstairs. The landlord and I both thought the RU would have finished at 5.50pm. Will hopefully be watching some bbc world cup games there. The landlord was talking of getting premier sports yesterday as well but not sure if that will happen. The Jetlag bar on Cleveland St (which is a 5 min walk from the Hope) does have premier sports though and never gets packed.
