Best Pubs To Watch Rugby In Edinburgh
'Edinburgh' and 'rugby' is a match made in heaven. With Murrayfield just a short stroll away from Princes Street, the city welcomes sports fans from across the world by hosting Six Nations games and Autumn International test matches. But away from the main event, the city is also home to some truly amazing pubs, all offering the perfect spot to catch every kick, tackle and try live on TV. Grab a cold pint at the bar, sink into a cosy armchair and watch your team battle it out in Edinburgh's best sports pubs.

Situated in Stockbridge, Hector's is one of the best Edinburgh rugby pubs there is. Thanks to both Sky and TNT Sports on their multiple screens, you won't miss a second of the action here. And the fun doesn't stop when the game ends, as there's everything from glazed pork belly to plant-based burgers on the menu.
For boozers to catch all the rugby matches, we suggest heading over to Finnegan's Wake. The venue will be slinging out everything from HD screens to watch every single minute of the match to a cracking selection of beers and signature cocktails like a Tutti Fruity or the Wild Child.
Been searching for 'pubs showing rugby near me' lately? Head over to this Old Town party palace for the chance to catch all the action from the big games. Grab the gang and settle into the horror-themed beer hall with a couple of steins and some tasty eats.
Situated in the trendy neighbourhood of Leith, Season Quayside is a fabulous multi-purpose venue that hosts quite the sports screening. On a massive 98inch screen with surround sound, you can enjoy the fixtures with a bucketload of food and drink to get stuck into - making this one of the best pubs to watch rugby in Edinburgh.
This city centre watering hole boasts an enviable range of cask ales and traditional Scottish whiskies, but they also have plenty of TVs available for rugby viewing. For a half time refuel, you can nab fish 'n' chips, filling pies and garlic-coated chicken at this friendly pub.
The Southsider can be found in exactly the area of Edinburgh you'd expect (yup, Southside, if you hadn't guessed already), boasting cosy nooks and tartan-covered booths with their own TVs for you to settle down in. Better yet, there are further screens throughout the venue so you don't miss moment.
There's nowhere else you should watch the rugby in Edinburgh than at Belushi's. Just moments from the Royal Mile, it's vibrant and bustling atmosphere hits fever pitch on game nights. And if all the drama makes you hungry, there's mouthwatering pizzas, burgers and loaded nachos on the menu here.
Offering one of the best rugby-ready atmospheres in the city, this Grove Street bar and pizza parlour is not just bringing you live screening of all the UK's biggest rugby events, they've also got pool tables, Xbox, retro arcade games, tasty beers and cocktails and delicious stone-baked pizzas.
No venue in Edinburgh showcases live sport quite like the Peartree. Sitting on West Nicholson Street, this famous pub's beautiful beer garden is complete with it own giant projector screen, on which the team show every second of the rugby action - all while serving ice cold pints of lager, locally sourced ale and fresh barbecue plates.
