Should arrive in Oviedo tomorrow evening and was looking for a decent pub/bar to watch the game in!
Mixed results with google, I know I might struggle finding somewhere, as I believe Spain are playing at the same time!

I am reminded of my experience a small Spanish Camino town Irish Pub. They had 3 beers on tap.
I requested a Guinness. "We don't have that."
I requested a Smithwicks. "We don't have that." Finally I asked, "How about Estrella?" No problem.
So I asked, "How is it that in an Irish pub you don't have any Irish beers?"
"No one here likes them."

Did they a least give you it in a Guinness pint glass!
Well I think I’ve found the first Spanish city that doesn’t have any Irish pubs, not even the fake ones, with Guinness tat stuck on every wall! I have just returned from the bustling streets of Oviedo looking for said, Irish Pub, it appears both my map apps are out of date, as the promised Irish pub appears to have morphed into a slick trendy bar!
Some bars showing the Spain game, but doesn’t seem to be a lot of interest!

I remember walking by the Irish Pub in Oviedo some years ago and wondering if they had sidra natural. Having lived in Ireland for some years and having had pub food there, I ended up deciding to go for an Asturian menu de dia.

Couldn’t believe it!
