The new football season has returned!

And following almost a full-season of teams playing without any fans inside the stadiums, it’s great to see matches with full capacity crowds again.

However, if you’re like me, and going to the match isn’t usually possible, then you really want the next best thing.

For me, watching it on the big screen in a pub with mates comes a close second. There’s a brilliant atmosphere, and you can sit, dine and drink with your mates while watching the action. But where’s the best pub around Hull & East Yorkshire to watch the football? Here are my favourite bars & pubs with amazing setups where you can watch the big matches this summer.

Firepit Smokehouse & Sports Bar

Flemingate, Beverley, HU17 0NZ

Another favourite of mine and once again, this is a modern sports bar with plenty of screens all over the joint. What I like about Firepit is that, like Tribal, they also have a video wall but with no visible joints getting in the way; Tribal looks like 9 screens joined together which isn’t a major problem, but Firepit is a slight improvement. Firepit also has some nice comfy couches right in front of the screen but you have to book early in order to get one though.

Like Tribal, the food is excellent, great selection of drinks available and there’s a few pool tables and other games to enjoy before and after the match.

Tribal Bar & Grill

Kingswood Leisure Park, Kingswood, Hull, HU7 3DB

This is a modern sports bar which is my usual ‘go-to’ to watch the match, particularly as it’s the closest one to me.

Like most modern bars today, it’s spacious, vibrant, and more comfortable than most pubs. It has several screens around the place including a huge video wall and an excellent sound system.

The food is very, very good too and there’s a good selection of drinks and prices are pretty reasonable.

Village Hotel Pub & Grill

Henry Boot Way, Hull HU4 7DY

I haven’t experienced this one myself yet, but it looks fantastic!

The Village Hotel’s Pub & Grill had a refurb last year and installed a huge 75″ TV with theatre-style seating so you can get a great view of the match. There are plenty more screens around the place, all nice and big too, so you definitely won’t miss a minute even if you have to pop up to the bar for more drinks.

I have tried the food here and it is good too. Drinks selection is ok but a little pricey. Worth going though just for the big screen.

Sutton Fields

Oslo Rd, Hull HU7 0YN

Since a refurb a year or two ago, Sutton Fields has become a great place to watch the football. There’s no huge screen like the others, but there are 10 HD screens positioned all over the pub, so you can get a good view wherever you’re sat.

Drinks are well-priced and food looks good (but not yet tasted). There are two new pool tables as well for half-time games with your mates.

Whistling Goose

Amsterdam Rd, Sutton Fields, Hull HU7 0XF

Whistling Goose is another pub that’s recently had a facelift. I used to watch the football here fairly regularly before it happened, but the refit has introduced much nicer seating that’s more spacious and open plan.

Just across the way from Sutton Fields, it has plenty of parking and like Sutton Fields, large HD screens are dotted everywhere throughout so there aren’t many places you wouldn’t get a decent view of the match. Although personally I’d recommend going for the biggest screen they have in the north side of the pub (to the left as you walk through the main entrance).

I can highly recommend the food, particularly if you like a steakhouse grill menu. Drinks are reasonably priced too. Overall a great place to chill and watch the football.

The Hayride

Grange Way, Beverley HU17 9GP

Part of the same chain as Whistling Goose, The Hayride in Beverley is a bit of a hidden gem that I discovered in September last year after Firepit in Flemingate was rammed for a big match.

Like The Whistling Goose, this is another spacious pub with plenty of big screens so wherever you sit you’ll have a great view of the match. Drinks and food are well priced; easy to order from your table using the app. Like Whistling Goose, it’s a steakhouse grill menu (I can highly recommend the steaks). They’re also dog friendly and there’s plenty of parking at the back.
