Sports bar/pub with English football

I will be staying on Longboat Key in a couple of weeks. Can anyone recommend a sports bar not too far away which is likely to be showing Premier League football on a Saturday (Man Utd v Villa)? Thanks alot.

Don't mind a bit of a drive - will go crazy if i have to follow the match on the internet when i could be watching it. Staying at Hilton so i guess more towards the south end.

Comcast TV carries soccer on ESPN. I wouls check with the Hilton and see if they get coverage.

Many places will show College Football (US) on Saturdays. That's what Yanks watch.

There are some British Pubs in town that might put the match on for you.

You would have to check.

Shaespeare's Pub, the White Horse and others..

You should also post on the Anna Maria Island forum...that is north of the Hilton and might have options there, too.

It's a bit of a drive, maybe 30 minutes, but White Horse Pub on the northern end of Sarasota should have it. They're located in a shopping plaza at the corner of N. Lockwood Ridge Road and University Parkway. Check out their website at www.the-white-horse-pub.com or send them an email to confirm.

We are U K seasonal residents and before we got all of the sports channels we used to go to the Champions Bar on the corner of Beneva and Webber. It is run by a couple from Tyneside and the sausage and bacon naps are fab. Check their website out.
