We have stopped by for a few drinks on a Friday evening. I loved the atmosphere and it was surprisingly not as crowded as I would have expected. They had a large selection of beer and ciders. We had a nice time.

I do think they have TVs around the bar so they probably are! You won't be stuck finding a bar that shows it if they aren't!
