So... an update in case someone is ever researching the same topic in the future.

I went to Famous Three Kings. The pub is next door to the West Kensington tube stop. I walked there from my hotel - the Radisson Blu close to Gloucester Station. The walk was not especially picturesque but I needed to walk so it was OK; I took the tube back.

Its a really nice pub with lots of space and a really great staff. There was one big room dedicated to NFL with 3 games being shown, not just the Sky Sports broadcasted game. They showed the game Heimdall refers to above (Skysports, Bears vs Eagles, poor Bears, I will leave it at that) with sound and two other games without sound. They also had the Bills/Chiefs game, and the Bucs/Falcons - which was shown from a Spanish sports network. I know this because of the two guys doing the commentary (no sound but I recognized them from watching in Spain.)

There were a total of 5 people watching and not all at the same time (in other words, NFL viewers were sparse.) In another room there was a Spanish football match being shown and there were several dozen Spanish people there, and hundreds of beers being consumed. NFL does not seem the target market at Famous Three Kings... LOL... but I certainly was happy.

I ate too and the food was decent. It filled a need. Here is the website of the pub - https://www.craft-pubs.co.uk/f3k-london

Thanks again for all the help especially to Heimdall who went the extra mile.

well done, Heimdall.

Rialtogirl - glad you had such a great time, albeit a slightly solitary one. Nice pub!

Thank you very much for the feedback, rialtogrl! I am very happy you got to see the NFL games.

I watched some of the games at home, and taped the Packers v Steelers game to watch Monday morning. My beloved Packers lost to a field goal in the last few seconds of the game!

Heimdall I did not know you were a Packers fan. I love them too. But I also love the Steelers because of family my little brother is a die hard, so we all root for the Steelers for him. Good job in such a close game without Aaron, I am sorry I could not watch this game! I will never, ever forgive the Vikings for taking him out of the season. Never.

I'm in the BA lounge headed home... There is cricket on the tv, haha.
