The Crown has established itself as Bristol’s premier viewing destination for this year’s African Cup of Nations, showing one of both the early and late kick-offs each day this week.


This evening, see host nation Gabon take on 2013 finalists Burkina Faso at 4pm, before hotly-tipped Cameroon play Guinea at 7pm - both times GMT. Closer to home, the FA Cup replay between Plymouth Argyle and Liverpool will also be screened at 7.45pm.

With food served until 9pm and a stellar selection of drinks, The Crown has something to please even the most stubborn soccer nay-sayer. Occupying the same site since 1741, The Crown is a real ale pub and cider house with an edge. This superb venue blends the traditional with the alternative to create one of Bristol’s must-visit locations.
