Celtic Pubs, Clubs & CSC’s In London

Any corrections just add them to comments at the bottom and we’ll change them soon as possible…also if we’ve missed anything let us know and if you think we should add somewhere we have missed then stick it all in the comments section!

London you're a lady...

We’re not going to add every Celtic friendly pub as despite pubs closing at an alarming rate London’s still full of Irish boozers that show Celtic games. These are the ones that have Supporters Clubs or are particularly long established or memorable.

I’ve also included some links to web-sites that review pubs as these tend to have good maps and the details of how to get there. Ignore 95% of the actual reviews on these sites because if you care that some middle class tit thinks that such and such a place is run down or scruffy just because he couldn’t get his favourite wine then you’re in the wrong place. Its people that make pubs not nice carpets and all these come with a special guarantee… a Celtic guarantee!

UNDERGROUND CELTIC SUPPORTERS CLUB

HACKNEY CELTS

Not strictly a CSC more just a gathering of supporters. The pub is owned by Dublin brothers and has loads of Celtic and Irish memorabilia decorating the place. The Yucatan, 121 Stoke Newington Rd, Hackney, London, N16 8BT. Have to say its not as lively as it use to be but for big games can still get a decent crowd in.

LONDON CELTIC SUPPORTERS

As is usual these days most things happen on Facebook and these are a pretty lively bunch that you can pick up any bit of information needed from. Not much to say except its yer typical FB group so all the good and bad bits of FB apply. Just click to join and get involved in the discussion. Members are based all over London and the South-East so its all covered. Has taken a while to get established but for new Celts to the area this should be your first port of call.

WEST LONDON CSC

wl cscCeltic Football Club was founded in 1888 on a charitable basis and proceeds from their games were used to give the needy children in Glasgow’s East End, at least one square meal a day. Although times have changed, our supporters’ club (based in Brentford, west London), has carried on this tradition supporting many local charities including the local branches of Help The Aged, Mencap and The Royal Princess Trust for Carers for over 4 years. Our new charity is Lindon bennett School for severely handicapped children.

The West London Celtic Supporters’ Club was founded in 1996 over quite a few beers in The New Inn, Brentford, west London. That remained our home for 16 years before moving to our new home at The Horse Guardsman public house, 23 Ealing Road, Brentford, TW8 0JU on 8th December 2010. It’s here we aim to show every game possible with Celtic minded people where a warm welcome awaits you.

THE BHOYS OF CROYDON

The Bhoys of Croydon CSC was formed in 2000.

After a fair bit of inactivity (the club was looking for a new venue for games) they have finally settled in Railway Tavern, 401 Southend Lane, Sydenham, SE26 5BH ( across from the Sainsbury’s superstore). A newish Celtic friendly pub run by Turkish brothers. They put on a good spread of free grub – turkish stew, filled rolls, etc – at half time for big matches. Rebel songs before and after matches and maybe 50/60 fans for the big games. Nearest station is Lower Sydenham.

The Railway Tavern

The Railway Tavern

another decent Celtic pub in Sydenham is The Pavilion. Has a good weekend crowd for games and is right beside Sydenham tube station. The pubs address is 325 Kirkdale, London SE26 4QB. Some reviews, maps and directions to the Pavilion can be found here and here.

SPIRIT OF 67 CSC

Formerly based at The Kingdom pub in the heart of Irish London in Kilburn at 229 Kilburn High Road, London, NW6 7JG. They have since moved but I recommend checking out the pub if you’re in the area.

They are now based at The Mazenod Social Club, Mazenod Rd (just off Quex Road), Kilburn, London NW6. Nearest tubes are West Hampstead, Kilburn and Kilburn Park and also West Hampstead (Thameslink) and Brondesbury and Kilburn High Road (National Rail). All stations are a 5-10 minute walk.

The Supporters Club have a facebook page here though you will have to be accepted first to see it and The Social Club have a page here.

BHOYS OF ILFORD CSC

Celtic Badges, Celtic Supporters Club Badges, CSC BadgesAnother CSC I don’t know a great deal about unfortunately. They have moved about a fair bit and use to be at Maguires but now meet at the excellent Queens Head, 5-7 West Ham Lane, Stratford, London, E15 4PH. Just a few minutes walk from Stratford tube and rail station. Head straight through the old shopping centre and you’re nearly there! The pub has regular music sessions and well known Celtic, Irish and rebel bands appearing.

NWCSC (North West London)

nw cscs

London NWCSC were founded from The Edge of Town infamous pub in Edgware in 1995. That pub is sadly now closed but when the club was going really well we had over 400 members. Too many mad nights over 20 years to remember The Wolfe Tones, Charlie And The Bhoys, Spirit of Freedom, Blackstairs Rebel, Gary Og, Shebeen, Damien Quinn etc etc. Wild bhoys lots of ceoil ol agus craic. Over the years we lost a few promiment members, Scottish football got weaker, people moved away and my pub The Edge closed.We have kept in touch and for like the Brentford game we had over 60 of us together and for the Hun game in March about 100 of us. We are re-organising and will be big again. We are started up in our new home Hennessys, 399 Northolt Road, South Harrow HA2 8JE. By South Harrow Station (Piccadilly Line) come out the train station and turn left and walk up approx 500 metres. Our promise is to show every Celtic game and if we can’t we will tell you beforehand. Hail Hail. We will have lots of bands and lots of craic. As of March 2017 the pub changed it’s name to O’Donnells.

NWCSC have a group page on Facebook here and directions and details of how to get there are here but beware a lot of places still have the pub down as its old name.

SHEPHERDS BUSH EMERALD CSC

MAIDENHEAD CELTIC SUPPORTERS CLUB 

MaidenheadWe are a Celtic Supporters Club based in Maidenhead, Berkshire which is located next to Windsor, I started the club in the mid- ninety’s when i wanted somewhere to watch the games locally when i couldn’t make it up. In it’s prime in 2002/2003 we had around 70 members who would come to the pub to cheer the Bhoys on. My name is Tam O’Kane and still run the club from the Farmers Boy in Maidenhead and have a base of around 30 members with 15 regularly watching every game. We usually have an annual pilgrimage every year to Glasgow (sometimes several times to cheer on the lads as a group and can take 20 or so up. Most go up more often in smaller groups and travel further a field when possible. Cracking club for any Celts out there who are in the area and want to watch the game or have moved close by. We have travelled as far as Rome, Seville, Barcelona, Turin, Hamburg, Dortmund and more over the years and are a dedicated bunch. Hail Hail. All are welcome.

OTHER PUBS

Packed for Aberdeen games but they also show’s Celtic games and Scotland games. A ban on Rangers games unless Aberdeen are playing them or Celtic.

    Where is the closest Celtic FC club to Staines that is still open?

    • LondonCelticPunks February 15, 2016 at 11:36 am Reply

      There’s the The Irish Club in Slough up the road. ‘The Merry Slough Bhoys’ based there I think or you’re only about a hour from the Wimbledon CSC who are a great branch too.

  11. Chris March 16, 2016 at 10:22 pm Reply

    Just to say I would recommend the Maidenhead club to anyone in the area. Made it there by chance the day after a messy work night out and we were made more than welcome !

      Hello Patrick, The local one has gone so the nearest one to you is the Maidenhead CSC. It’s not far as the crow flies but a bus and a train public transport. Maybe ask on the Maidenhead CSC facebook page someone may know better.
      Good luck.
