Dad spends £20k building secret underground pub in his garden to watch football

A dad spent £20,000 building a secret bunker bar in the garden to watch football – and his wife and kids love it too.

Jody Wainright and his family were completing their self-build home when he decided he wanted to build a bar using the leftover materials.

The father-of-two says that he decided that the discreet venue would be underground to save space in the garden, and because it's something he hasn't seen before.

He explained: "I thought a bunker bar would be something different to the typical bars people usually build in their gardens.

"It's something outside the box and also has the wow factor because it's not something you see all the time."

After the idea began as a joke with the builder, one week later they started digging out the hole in the ground.

The structure was completed in around six weeks.

The secret bunker bar also doubles up as a cinema room where Jody and his family also enjoy watching films as on one side of the room there is a widescreen television.

There is also a screen that drops down from the ceiling which Jody uses for watching sports.

Although his wife isn't such as a huge fan of the amount of time he spends in his pub watching football, Jody claims that she loves the new home feature as much as he does.

The 41-year-old from Wakefied, West Yorkshire said: "The bar was a godsend during the many lockdowns. It was great to have a lovely space we could appreciate and enjoy as a family.

"My kids love the bar. They're always down there having parties with their friends or watching movies.

"My wife enjoys it too, although I'm not sure she enjoys how often I am down there watching football.

"When we have people over they are blown away by the bunker when they see it. It's not every day you get to go into an underground bar.

"There bar consists of a booth seating area in the corner, a bar at one end of the room with draft lager and cider. There's also a couple of sofas and a table in the middle."

The dad has spent money creating a space where he can invite friends and neighbours around for a few beers while they watch all the top games.

He has splashed out on the decor to make it the perfect space where he can enjoy watching his favourite team.

It also has the benefit of being secluded and sound does not travel because it is underground and causes no noise nuisance to non-footie fans.
