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.

Don't be surprised if you see some odd/smug looking chaps all dressed in suits with black ties appear and congreagate near the door. They're the actual Freemasons from the Lodge across the road....more
I don't really hangout at pubs because they can be a little too dingy. But this pub is actually quite nice, even though old it's fitted with 5-6 flat screens and my personal favorite... Clean!
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
