Best restaurants in London to celebrate the Euros
Whether you love football or hate it, you will have found it impossible to escape the Euro 2016 football championship. But with England, Wales and Northern Ireland all through to the last 16, there is much for home nations to celebrate. If you’re not able to make it out to France to enjoy these matches, why not try a different kind of celebration? Across the UK, many top restaurants are getting into the spirit of the Euros with themed nights, big screens and a great atmosphere.
Best London restaurants that are celebrating the Euros
- The Marksman in Hackney is gearing up to support England all the way. It is screening all of England’s matches and is serving up a special three-course menu to accompany the festivities for £35. This includes oysters, curry buns, fried potatoes, steak and ice cream sandwiches. Booking in advance is recommended.
- The Exhibit is an all-day bar and restaurant in Balham. Its garden has gone “football crazy” with TVs to watch the matches and an outdoor bar and kitchen. You do not need to miss a second of the game when you want some refreshment.
- Smith & Wollensky is a steakhouse just off the Strand serving prime dry-aged sirloin. This is the perfect place to get together with a group of fellow fans. Hire a private dining room to watch the game, and enjoy steak, spinach, chips and your choice of a pint for £38.
- Big Fernand in Fitzrovia is the first London-based branch of a French chain that serves burgers in a true French style. The upstairs dining room has been transformed to celebrate the Euros with a big screen, table football and plenty of seating for the fans. Open a bottle of French beer, enjoy the authentic Gallic atmosphere and pretend that you’re in France!
