No sorry, busy at home this evening.

Only one place to watch Ulster in that area and it is Philomena's (40 Great Queen St, London WC2B 5AA) only a 10 minute walk from Leicester Sq

My other half reported that it was quite a party yesterday – Frampton was in the pub.

Yes I read in the paper that he was going to be there along with the Northern Ireland fans to watch the game.

In more good news I'm not barred for shouting Hendoooooooo over and over again at 2am following Ulster games

However my Hendoooooooo will be reserved for actual games as it buggers the old larynx

Anyone been to Philomenas at 40 Great Queen Street recently and is it likely to be showing the Munster and Leinster games on Saturday afternoon 14.12.2019?

I have not been recently but it will always show all the matches.

Great pub with a good atmosphere and good pint of Guinness to boot!

Hello there - is the a group in London that regularly gets together to watch the Ulster games somewhere central in London?
Keen to catch up with fellow Ulster men and women if possible socially.
I have had a lot of friends leave London over the last few years…Gmac :red:

Philomena's in Covent Garden used to be the place to go. Its got a Northern Irish manager. I dont know if there's a group. I've not come across them recently if there is.

Yeah that was the place to go but it has been a few years since I was there (now left London) and there was never an organised group that met, just seemed to bump into one or two people while there :fleg:

Aye. That’s the one. Was last there when Ulster beat Clermont a couple of years back with a bit of Cooney magic. I remember it because an interested spectator in the bar that night was a certain Andrew Trimble.

No organised group but a fair few ulster fans in there and you just get chatting to people over a few pints.
