We may well have gone a little EURO crazy over here at Average Joes, but who can blame us. With England, Wales, Scotland (oops, typo), Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland all staring, there seems a little bit of extra buzz about the whole thing. As always, we of course need somewhere to watch the games, so check out our Best Pubs to watch EURO2016.

Best Pubs to watch EURO 2016

However, whilst for most games the viewing choice is simple, usually at home (or work!), when it comes to those ever important ones. What do you do? Special Venue, home or out to the pub? Well for those thinking pub, two drinking professionals (seriously) have pulled together the best pubs across the Kingdom. We have hand picked our favourite 10 from their 25!

BEST: The Water Poet, Liverpool Street, London

Situated a small kick from the station, The Water Poet does some of the best beer and most delicious pub grub in the capital. Nice screens and an outside bar and BBQ make this a must use for at least one game!
Screens: 5/5
Beer: 5/5

The Back Page, Dublin

Astroturf laid in the garden, pizzas named after footballers and a hot of games including: FIFA on the PlayStation, ping-pong and darts make the Back Page a must visit in Dublin. Four screens and a main projector make this a great viewing spot.
Screens: 5/5
Beer: 4/5

Camp & Furnace, Liverpool

More of a Fan Park than a pub. During EURO 2016 this former steel works in the Baltic Triangle will be transformed. The warehouse space has room for 800 seated fans on long Octoberfest-style trestle tables and included the biggest biggest screen in Liverpool.

The Hudson Bar, Belfast

8 screens in great spots make this head into our top 5, and and did we mentoion the chicken wings are to die for?

The Murderers, Norwich

Our hometown! Named the Murderers after mis-demeanour a few years ago. Don’t worry, well before the war and there was definitely no football involved. Countless screens, including the toilets and a classic ‘standing terrace’. There is even a private room for hire!
Screens: 5/5
Beer: 4/5

Picture House Social, Sheffield

In Nether Edge just outside Sheffield city centre is Picture House Social where matches will be shown in a state-of-the-art mini-cinema room kitted out by none other than the British Film Institute. Slide down into snug cinema seats for something all that little bit classy. Perfect for a random game with the missus if you must.

Beer: 4/5

Dram, Glasgow

70 different types of Scotch make this the bar to be if you find yourself North of the Border. A slow smoked BBQ menu just add to the excitement. Just don’t turn up for a Scotland game..
Screens: 4/5
Beer: 4/5

The Alexandra Beer Emporium, Southampton

We needed something on the South Coast and the Alexandra Beer Emporium is a worthy addition. It’s a geeks paradise with film memorabilia and even Star Wars-themed cocktails served in pints. A massive outdoor screen and ample beer garden make this a must visit in the sun.
Screen: 4/5
Cocktails: 5/5

Trent Navigation Inn, Nottingham

Multiple screens, each rocking 42 inches of HD , beam every sport imaginable either inside or out in the garden. Showing each and every EURO 2016 game.

The Lord Clifden, Birmingham

A little bit upmarket here in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter – great beers on tap and even some Bankys art on the walls. Three large screens inside and then even more outside in the beer garden. Pray for sunshine!

Brotherhood of Pursuits and Pastimes, Leeds

Likely to be filled with ex-managers this great pub will have confetti guns, live singers for the National Anthem before England games and eye-watering 82-inch TV screens. You can even have your photo taken with England striker Jamie Vardy (on a green screen).
Screens: 5/5

Dry Dock, Leicester

Speaking of King Vardy, we just had to include an establishment in Leicester. The Dry Dock is actually an enormous boat in the middle of landlocked Leicester. Screens aplenty and one of the biggest beer gardens around!

Just like the Premier League, right near the bottom.. The Strawberry is one of the most famous pubs in the North and can be seen from St James’ Park. Plasma screens dotted everywhere, don’t enter if you are Sunderland..
