IS it coming home this time?

That is what many England football fans will be hoping as the delayed Euro 2020 tournament gets underway today.

After the pandemic hit the hospitality industry hard, Malvern pubs and bars will also be hoping to capitalise on the football fever.

Although the Covid restrictions will still be in place, supporters are encouraged to book tables at many venues, in advance, to secure a spot for the big games.

Here are just some of the venues where you catch England’s opener against Croatia on Sunday, and matches throughout the rest of this tournament.

Bluebell Inn

You can cheer on Southgate’s men at the tournament at the Bluebell Inn in Barnards Green.

And it is not just the England opener that will be live, as every game in the tournament will be shown.

The Bluebell said: “We will be showing every game live in our bar. Every England game will also be providing a half time spread.

“No reservations needed, just come on down and enjoy a great tournament.”

The Three Horseshoes

Popular Malvern traditional pub, The Three Horseshoes, is another venue to consider for getting your football fix.

Pub-goers will be able to enjoy the game and a great range of cask ales, lagers, malt whiskeys and gins. The pub is running a booking system over the phone, or using their website. They will be allowing walk ins, but it is advised to book to avoid disappointment.

New Inn

New Inn has a large screen going up especially for the England game.

The Lower Howsell Road pub is sure to have an excellent atmosphere for the game. It is asking people to book a table in advance in the garden, marquee area.

A roast dinner will be served between noon and 3pm, if pre booked, with platters served until 5pm.

Malvern Town

Malvern Town Football Club are showing the game on what they are calling “the largest screen in Malvern”.

The club will also be showing the match on various other TV screens, to make sure you miss none of the action.

There are deals on drunks, and a BBQ.

Tickets costs £10 which includes the first drink. But the club warn there is limited availability, so fans will need to book in advance.
