near-ish London Bridge that show sport?
Maybe not, altho Doggetts shows sport.
By definition, good pubs do not show sport
Has TV upstairs if that counts
The Kings Head show sport but is pretty rough, in every way. The Roxy shows bigger games on the big screens but you need to grab a spot at least an hour before kick off. The Barrowboy and Banker is where I usually end up, if you get there reasonably early you can get one of the tables by the TV at the back, or crane your neck for the one mounted up in the corner. Commentary is always quiet though.
at the St Thomas' Street end has TVs, and passable Chinese and Thai food. Not really a football atmosphere-type pub though.
Although I wasn't really paying attention.
Neither is near London Bridge and neither (so far as I know) shows sport.
Otherwise, the Cross Kings on Gracechurch St. is the other side of London Bridge but has a cinema screen for showing big matches. It's a Wetherspoons but fairly classy.
If that doesn’t take your fancy, then go to the Roxy, near Borough Station, or up to the massive weatherspoons on Gracechurch Street (the Crosse Keys). The Roxy doesn’t show too many games though as it often has films showing or events on. Best to check their website.
Other than that, it’s all awesome old-man pubs that don’t cater to the Carling crowd, I’m afraid.
