Where to watch the Six Nations

The Six Nations men’s Rugby Union competition starts on February 2 and runs until March 16. It is not only one of the oldest international rugby tournaments but arguably one of the best to watch.  

So, where locally is the best place to watch the Six Nations?  

The Cabbage Patch, Twickenham

The Cabbage Patch is in the centre of Twickenham, only a 16-minute walk from Twickenham Stadium itself and accessible to get to via buses or train.  

George Winham, social media co-ordinator for the Cabbage Patch, said: “The Cabbage Patch is the best pub to watch rugby, being the most famous in the world.

“Everyone knows about the Cabbage Patch, during the world cup we had fans from all countries which makes it even more special.”  

‘The Patch’ is filled with memorabilia from the English rugby games and hosts games for customers on match days such as score predictions and guess the first try scorer, creating a sociable atmosphere.  

On match days the establishment recommend bookings to get a good viewing of the screens.  

The Bishop, Kingston

The Bishop in Kingston, is an establishment owned by Young’s pub chain on Thames Street with multiple screens across two levels, including a screen in the riverfront garden.  

Bianca Pagan, team leader at Young’s said: “Our team are so rugby driven, we love having the games on so we can follow along whilst at work. 

“Our open bar area creates a great atmosphere, we are also very family friendly and welcome dogs with open arms. You can enjoy the best Guinness in town alongside our riverside views.”

They also offer a raffle that gives customers a chance to win tickets to watch the Six Nations at Twickenham Stadium.  

Spring Grove, Kingston  

Spring Grove, on Bloomfield Road, is also a local establishment owned by Young’s, offering the same services and a selection of drinks and food.  

Katie Goldie Cheetham, sales executive at Young’s said: “When it comes to game day, nothing beats the atmosphere of our pub, it’s akin to being right by the pitch with its vibrant energy and camaraderie. 

“You’ll find friendly banter with opposing fans, multiple screens with replays, ensuring you never miss a crucial moment.”

The Bishop and The Spring Grove are both offering a complimentary round of Guinness when you book to watch the match or order from the A la Carte menu on the day. 

The Fox, Twickenham

The Fox on Church Street, Twickenham, is a 22-minute walk from the stadium and a 6-minute walk from the train station.  

Local rugby supporter, Liam Wright-Airs said: “The Fox is one of the oldest pubs in the area and located down a lovely, picturesque, cobbled street in Twickenham, which creates a cosy and intimate setting with a pint of Guinness to watch the Six Nations.”  

The Fox offers live music every weekend, proving popular with the locals and rugby fans after the matches.
