Best Six Nations Pubs and Sports Bars

Every February, rugby fans bristle with excitement with the prospect of five old foes (and Italy) locking horns again in the Six Nations. At MatchPint, we believe firmly that the best place to watch sport is in the pub so below is a list of our best pubs showing the Six Nations.

Six Nations

At MatchPint, we believe that a pint glass contains more beer than a tinnie, that drinking restrictions in stadia make everyone a little bit grumpy, and that Curry's PC World need to seriously rethink their business model. Therefore, to help you find the perfect pint for that perfect game, we've highlighted the best Six Nations pubs in the UK. For more pubs, visit our Six Nations page or perhaps consider playing our Pint Predictor game to win a free Guinness to enjoy with the game?

Masons Arms

Masons Arms

North West London, Kensal Green. Firmly established as the best sports pub in the community, Masons Arms is putting a real show for this year's event. While they'll have other sport on too, the Six Nations matches will all have a dedicated area with it's own upstairs bar with drinks offers and table service available to those that book in advance. It's a big old place and is bound to be the place to be come kick off.
Merchant

Merchant

South West London, Battersea. With three big screen projectors (12ft, 8ft and 5ft) and a 50inch plasma the viewing experience in the Merchant is second only to watching the game live (and even then you don't get as good a view as in the pub!). With table service for drinks as well, you'll be left to get on with the two things you love most: watching matches and drinking pints!
Bowler Pub and Kitchen

Bowler Pub and Kitchen

Central London, Clerkenwell. A long time favourite of MatchPint and selected as our first ever Pub of the Month back in October 2012, The Bowler has it all in the heart of London. Big screen viewing, great banter and the best scotch egg in town. Don't just stumble across it, go there!
One Tun

One Tun

Central London, Goodge Street. A newbie to MatchPint - whey! Shopping with your missus in town with five minutes till kick off? Stop. Think. Get to the One Tun. There's a great mix of locals, travelers and suits (though given it's the weekend, probably fewer suits), drinking great beer, eating good food and often found playing darts at half time. Our pick for the best spot in central London.
Morgan Arms

Morgan Arms

East London, Bow. Given the Mitchell brothers were never big rugger fans, Rugby's never really kicked of in the East End but look hard enough, and you'll find this gem of a pub showing all the six nations games. There's no Sky Sports so you're unlikely to find any sports louts in the patron list ensuring that you get a great Gastro experience with excellent tipples east of Liverpool Street!

Belushis and The Dugout

Belushis and The Dugout

Getting yourself in a pickle about where to watch the 6 Nations Rugby? How about scrumming down to Belushi's this spring. Belushi's will be playing all the 6 Nation Rugby matches, in all their London sites as well as Newquay, Bath and Edinburgh. Don't miss out on the live action with commentary on loads of TV's, big screens and projectors for the ultimate viewing experience. They've got loads of offers on food and drinks including happy hours from 5-8pm, 2 for 1 beers and great deals on buckets of beer and cocktails. If you're a hungry member of the pack be sure to try out the tasty Flanker Burger. This stouty stack comes smothered with mounds of sharp cheddar cheese, smoky bacon and giant onion rings all dripping in a Guinness infused BBQ sauce. Dee-licious!
