Wimbledon at The Pembroke
Although you may not have noticed, summer fast approaches, I promise. And this means a plethora of excellent events and activities on offer here in Earls Court.
There’ll be picnics and garden parties and street festivals, but I’ll come to all that later. A summer staple of course, and just down the way, is Wimbledon. But unless you want to stand in line for several hours or shell out well over £2000 for the privilege of attending in person you’ll have to watch it at home. Or will you?
One of my favourite local pubs, The Pembroke, has decided to play host for all those important games, sets and matches by revving up their big screens on the mezzanine floor.
Unlike watching sports at so many other London pubs, which can be thoroughly dingy affairs, The Pembroke has a wonderful upstairs gallery with fantastically high ceilings and gigantic windows that wrap around the entirety of two sides of the room. The other sides house an upstairs bar and direct access to a roof terrace… I hope you’re catching the summery drift here.
So, think summer, wide open windows, Pimms, Champagne, strawberries and a full table service all set to the gentle ‘pop’ and ‘whoosh’ of ball hitting racket as Andy Murray makes his way to the final.
