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.

No venue in Edinburgh quite showcases live sport like the Peartree. Sitting on West Nicholson Street, the famous pub's beautiful beer garden is complete with it own giant projector screen, on which the team show every second of live rugby action. Serving ice cold pints of lager, locally sourced ale and fresh barbecue plates, the team really understand what watching live rugby is all about.

Whereas some pubs would rather offer a relaxed, cosy vibe for anyone wanting to watch rugby, The Three Sisters on the Cowgate instead hopes to create the same atmosphere found in rugby stadiums across the UK. Erecting huge screens in its courtyard during the Six Nations, the fully stocked bar and barbecue pit outside makes it the perfect pub for watching rugby in Edinburgh.
