A watering hole in Harold Hill has been named among the top five sports pubs in the capital, according to research.

The Saxon King was named this week as the only east London venue among the top five in a study conducted by TV and electrical retailer Currys.

The Petersfield Avenue pub scored fifth to receive a score of 29.33 out of 50, compared with Harrow winner The Junction which attained 37.55.

Assessment criteria included the average pint price in the area, the number of screens, the availability of a big screen and anti-social behaviour figures per postcode.

The Saxon King hosted celebrations in June when West Ham beat Italian side Fiorentina 2-1 to lift the Europa Conference League trophy.

The Currys study, which has an interactive pub map, analysed more than 3,700 UK pubs.
