Freemasons Arms

About

The Freemasons Arms pub in Covent Garden is a lasting tribute to the founders of the Football Association 150 years ago.

The pioneers of soccer met at the original Freemasons pub in 1863 to thrash out the laws of a game now played across the globe.

Today, there's Football Association memorabilia and the perfect set-up to enjoy televised football.

The tables in the corners are elevated which are nice when you're scouting for the friend you're meeting. And I love that it's close enough to Covent Garden for shopping but far enough away to keep...more
