THESE are some of the best venues people are going to watch England bring it home in this weekend.

Whitehaven - The Yellow Earl

Liz Cannon, owner of The Yellow Earl in Whitehaven, said: "Wednesday night was the best night we've had in the pub since the start of the pandemic.  I'm still recovering!"

They were fully booked just five minutes after Kane's goal went in.  They've had to turn away over 100 people since.

They can fit about 60, but planning regulations mean that they can't open the outside area after 9pm.

"If it was a 2pm kick-off, we'd be able to open that area and have 125 more in.  8pm doesn't help anybody at all."

Carlisle - Carlisle United F.C

Cumberland & Westmorland Gazette: Yeovil Town travel to Carlisle United's Brunton Park on August 30

Carlisle have turned their Sunset Suite at Brunton Park into a venue to watch the football.  They sold out every event so far, so space is tight, but the price of £6.50 comes with a pie and a pint to go with the game.

Beware though, if you don't have a ticket, you won't get in.

Carlisle - The Apple Tree

The Apple Tree is one of the most highly rated Carlisle venues and they're showing the game this Sunday.  They are booking-only but for the England vs Denmark semi-final they had two no-shows so it might be worth giving them a call or checking their Facebook page.

Barrow - Barrow Raiders

Cumberland & Westmorland Gazette:

As you've probably seen, Barrow Raiders have converted their pitch into a massive beer garden.  Demand for tickets has been huge, with those for the semi-final selling out in just 90 seconds.  Chairman Steve Neale said: "I just want to bring the best atmosphere around while keeping people safe."

Keep in mind that Barrow Raiders is a ticketed event, so if you don't get a ticket, you won't get in!

Barrow - The Derby Inn

The Derby Inn is another great shout.  Located centrally in Barrow, they have around 17 tables in the main bar and seven in the side.  Complete with a massive projector and a 65" screen.  They don't take bookings but they are expecting a great atmosphere, so show up early because it's first come, first serve.

Cockermouth - The Huntsman

If you're looking for a slightly more classic pub atmosphere than the big stadiums of Carlisle and Barrow, look no further than The Huntsman in Cockermouth.  With a capacity of 70 and four TVs, you won't miss a minute while experiencing a great atmosphere.

It's a non-ticketed event, so get there early enough and a table is yours!

Penrith - Rheged

Cumberland & Westmorland Gazette: Rheged

Rheged in Penrith is certainly a different experience to the others on this list.  It's showing the final on a 60ft. tall cinema screen for the price of £0.

A total of 92 people will get to watch England play against Italy, most of them rebookings from the semi-final.  Sarah, who works on the Welcome Desk, told me: "They went on sale last night minutes after the game and by the time I came in this morning they had all gone.  

"People can watch it at home for free or in the pub for free so why would we charge them?"

Kendal - The White Hart

Cumberland & Westmorland Gazette: SATISFIED: No complaints about the White Hart in Highgate, Kendal

If you're in Kendal, why would you look past the White Hart?   With a town centre location, it's one of the most popular spots to watch live football in the town.

Just off the high street, they are accepting walk-ins so you don't have to book a table.  Get there in plenty of time and you'll be able to sit on one of the many tables available.

Workington - The Ship Inn

The Ship Inn is a traditional pub in Workington.  Janet Scott, who has worked behind the bar for more than 10 years, said: "The atmosphere has been brilliant.  

"We have been showing football for our regulars who have supported us throughout everything.

You can still book a table but you'll need to be quick. "We will be showing the final on Sunday but it's bookings only.  A lot of the tables have been booked by people who have watched every game with us."

Workington - The Junction

Opened in 2018, The Junction is one of the newer pubs in Workington but still brings in the crowds.  Like many places, they were sold out at midnight last night so you'll only get in if there's a cancellation. 

Ulverston - The Sun Inn

Cumberland & Westmorland Gazette: The Sun Inn in Ulverston has a screen in the beer garden REF:2000 H156/16

Not many pubs are showing the football in Ulverston, whether it's COVID-restrictions on small premises or a lack of TVs in a more food-focussed pub, but it will be shown at The Sun Inn.  The Lakeland Inns pub has bookings inside and walk-in seating outside, so you can get a seat whatever your preference.

Wherever you go, we'd like to know your score predictions for the game.  Let us know in a comment how it'll end!
