If you’re anything like me and have left it to the last minute to find somewhere to watch England at Euro 2020, then you will be in the tricky situation of desperately trying to find somewhere to watch that isn’t fully booked.

Don’t worry! There are plenty of good bars and pubs in Manchester that are accepting walk-ins for England games. However, with all these establishments listed below, we still recommend that you get down there early to grab a seat.

Here is aAh! Magazine’s suggestions for where to watch football come home.


Tib Street Tavern | Tib Street, M4 1LG

Boasting “immaculate surroundings” to watch sport in, with big screens perfect for the occasion. Located in the heart of the Northern Quarter, grab some craft beers and something to eat, and sit back and enjoy the fun.

Bunny Jackson’s | 1 Jack Rosenthal St, M15 4RA

The American-style dive bar famous for their 20p hot wings is showing the Euros. Not only are they taking walk-ins, they go one better and don’t take any bookings so you might have a good chance of grabbing a seat here. What’s more, if England’s football is as boring as it was in the warm-up games, then Bunny’s has a hot wing challenge that can keep you and your mates entertained.

Crown and Kettle | 2 Oldham Rd, Ancoats, M4 5FE

With indoor seating, a brand new heated outdoor terrace and offering award-winning craft ale and cider, a trip to Ancoats could be a good bet to watch Southgate’s men attempt to lift England’s first European Championship. They will also be serving ‘concoctions’ from around Europe, as well as playing price-drop pints for key fixtures.

Lost Cat | 64 Oldham St, M4 1LE

Lost Cat are turning the first floor of their bar into a Euro 2020 zone, with big screens set up to show the games. Another bar exclusively taking walk-ins so get yourself down there, they’re only showing the football on one floor so make sure you arrive in time to secure a table.

Stage and Radio | 43 Port St, M1 2EQ

This Northern Quarter spot known for its live music and pizzas will be screening this year’s tournament and again, it’s walk-ins only.

Dive Bar and Grill | Tib Street, M4 1LG

Northern Quarter’s Dive Bar is hosting European Championship screenings inside and are taking walk-ins. Tucked away below ground you can watch the games on HD screens while enjoying cold beers and classic dive bar food. Be warned they are also taking bookings.
