Elevens is adorned with an enviable collection of memorabilia from Michael Jordan and Floyd Mayweather to local boys Sam Warburton and Gareth Bale – whose replica Champions League trophy and final goal scoring boots take pride of place by the bar.

Second-time finalist Elevens is well stocked with glittering tech and bespoke ‘Bale Ale’.

Laura Gorf of Elevens Bar and Grill explains: “Sport for us is at the heart of what we do and we want to be the best that we can be.

“Our aim was to have this family-friendly atmosphere – we want to make sure we’re welcoming everybody, even though we are a sports bar. When we do have those major events on, the pub fills up and the atmosphere is just electric.”
