Assuming not everyone is planning to travel to South Africa,

I have done you all a favour and found out which pubs in Dorchester are showing

the world cup this year. Isn't that nice?

If you don’t know already, England's first three matches are

scheduled for:

19:30 on Saturday 12th June vs the USA

19:30 on Friday 18th June vs Algeria

15:00 on Wednesday 23rd vs Slovenia

I’m sure most of you football fans will already have a

favourite pub for watching sports, but just in case you fancy a change or are

undecided about where to go, the following is a list of all the pubs I spoke to

who are showing the matches with details of how many screens they have:

Bar Rouge – one projector screen on the raised area at the

back of the pub, plus two other televisions

The Bakers Arms – one big projector screen

The George – four screens in total

The Junction – one ‘giant’ screen plus one widescreen, and

looking to get a third before the games begin

Wetherspoons – two screens (they will be playing the sound!)

The Station – three screens in total

The Sun Inn – two screens, will only be playing matches on

digital and not those on sky

The Sydney Arms – one big screen, two other televisions (drinks

promotion includes Fosters, Carlsberg, Thatchers and Best Bitter all at half


The Borough Arms (Goldies) – one big screen in the beer

garden, two other televisions inside

The Victoria –one screen

The Ship – two screens in total

Colliton Club (members only) – one big screen in the large

room and one television in the games area

Having seen the list of pubs, where will you be watching the

world cup? Will you be loyal and go to your local, switch pubs for each game,

or just stay at home? Where does everyone usually go? Please let me know if I have left anything out!
