I've been to Meehan's in Vinings (not quite East Cobb but maybe close?), and I guess there's one in Sandy Springs as well.

You could check with Johnnie Maccracken's Celtic pub in Marietta Square to see if they show any broadcasts: Johnnie Maccracken's

For live premiership you need pubs in Buckhead or L5P.

Thanks for the input
I've heard there's a few Brits around buckhead,the rose & crown is one i've heard of,unfortunately i don't think my bladder could take the ride back home after a skin full
keep the info coming though,there's always a hidden one that not many people know about.
Excuse my ignorance but what is L5P

L5P is an abbreviation for "Little 5 Points" which is an eclectic neighborhood south of the Virginia Highland area which would be an even further drive than Rose and Crown...

The Brew House in L5P is by far the best pub to watch football (soccer) bar none! It's packed with Brits and other Premiership fans every Saturday and Sunday for live games. They get Sky Sports, Setanta, and Gol TV via satellite. It's also packed during UEFA games. During the World Cup, it's absolutely out of control. I've spent a lot of time there watching the last two WCs and it was insane. You truly see how international this city is during the World Cup. You'll also see exactly how many Brits live in Atlanta because the place is covered in the St. George's Cross flags.

Back to the Premiership, during game days you'll see ManU fans, Tottenham fans, Arsenal fans, Chelsea fans, Liverpool fans, Aston Villa fans, etc. It's really crazy.

I agree the L5P brewhouse is the best place to watch a game. Especially the breakfast ones. Its definitetly worth the drive down.

As well as Fado theres also the new pub on 5th or North Avenue in Midtown but not sure if they normally show matches every week?

I am also amazed a certain other British fellow who ownes 5 pubs now in the perimeter area doesn't yet show games................

Thought the Rose and Crown closed? It wasnt a real football pub really anyway.
