Greene King lays claim to most decorated pub in England

The Big Tree, Sheffield 1

An impressive flag display has been created outside The Big Tree pub in Sheffield as football fever takes over the nation.

The front of the Greene King pub has been decorated with over 500 flags in support of Gareth Southgate’s team as they take on Scotland this evening.

The display took 36 hours to put up and includes the flags of all 24 teams competing in this year’s Euro finals.

Two 10-feet ‘Come on England’ supporter inflatables have also been installed, as well as bunting and flags on the inside of the pub.

Adam Chamberlain, general manager at The Big Tree, said: “Sport is at the heart of our pub, with six internal TV screens and an additional three screens in the beer garden, so we have amazing viewing ability in all areas.

“We’re really looking forward to lifting community spirit and bringing everyone together, which is why we’ve gone all out by creating the best atmosphere outside of the stadium. Our staff will even be wearing England t-shirts on matchdays to show their support.

“Sheffield is home to the world’s first ever football club so it’s only right we took celebrations to the next level by creating the biggest and best flag display in the city, if not the country!”

The Big Tree is one of 1,000 Greene King pubs showing every match across the tournament, with screens and full commentary.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, table bookings are being taken in advance.
