Welcome to London!
Hope you are all having a splendid time here in the UK, and that you are very excited to see the Sunday game between the Bears & Raiders at Tottenham stadium.
If you’re not going to the game-join us to watch it at the Princess Alexandra, in leafy Crouch End.
It is a traditional British pub, that has been set up for sport-so you will have loads of angles to watch the games.
If you are planning on joining us after the game-grab a ticket now! The late license takes us until 4am-WAY later than most of the places you will find in London.
It will be a great NFL party in a traditional British pub.
Warm your feet by the fire after a wet night of victory.
Close to central London, the stadium, and with late night travel links.
Here are some top tips for getting to us on Sunday.
Crouch End is one of the 3 hamlets of this area of north London-along with Muswell Hill and Highgate.
While there isn’t a tube station in the village-Finsbury Park station is less than 10 minutes away via the W7 or W3 buses.
Archway station on the Northern line, also has a direct bus-41, that takes you close to the pub.
You can also get there via overground rail links via Hornsey or Harringay stations, which are close by bus as well.
The 91 and 41 buses can also get you there from Trafalgar Square or Archway.
Or just take an Uber, screw it. It’s your vacation.
A locally owned pub with a great tradition of sport. There are 3 massive tvs and a HUGE projector, so all of the NFL games will be playing throughout the night.
There are 2 outdoor areas as well, so you smokers will be taken care of.
Getting to the Game
Tottenham Stadium/ White Hart Lane/ WHL is very close to Crouch End, & has a sneaky way of reaching it. Walk out of the pub 300m to the right, & on your left hand side is Park Road bus stop served by the W3 bus. Tap your bank card or Oyster card to ride. It’s about 30 minutes-19 stops direct to the stadium, & you will bypass a lot of traffic and police cordons. Arsenal play at 2pm, so the game should finish by 4pm. Time your journey to avoid the rush. 3pm or 5pm would be ideal. Since there’s no tailgate at the stadium nor atmosphere for 60000 fans, try to stay where you are then bolt at the last minute to get in and save money.
Loads of great pub grub. Since it is a Sunday-the Sunday roasts will be flowing until we run out. There will also be wings, burgers, nachos and other nibbles to sop up the booze. Earlier you get there, the more food available. Victory tastes good.
Loads of Bears fans will descend on the Alex in celebration after a crushing win over the Raiders. We will be showing loads of 6pm games-Bears vs Raiders, NFL Redzone as well as the 9pm games of Packers vs Cowboys. Will A-a-ron beat Dax in this hot contest? The 1am game between the Colts and Chiefs will also pop on to close out the night. Please make sure you have a ticket, we don’t want people disappointed they can’t get in.
Loads of parking in Crouch End, and anything north of Priory Park is FREE all night. So even if you have to ditch the wheels, you’re set. It’s a quiet hood, so you won’t have far to park on the council streets.
Crouch End is close to the north circular in case you need to boogie outta town.
It’s 4am-how do you get home? The tubes are closed-but the buses are not. Luckily the N91 bus goes straight to Trafalgar square via Kings Cross in 40/20 minutes. Easy peasy. Also, if you have Uber on your phone-you’re set. It’s about £15 to central London at that time of night-unless they surge price.
There is also a local park (Priory Park) you can probably sleep in for free if you’re adept at scaling 5 foot fences. You might get spray-tagged by local hoodlums before you rise, but it serves as a potential respite from a boozy game. Forecast calls for rain, so tune up your hobo skills.
You will need tickets after 9pm. We do this so the bar knows how many people are coming, and we can let you in on the offer. £5 for a ticket & includes a welcome beer. Where in London do you get a ticket that includes a FREE pint for a fiver?
It will be a busy night, so please make sure you buy in advance.
