To make sure you don't miss a single tackle or try of this year's competition, we've pulled together a list of all the best bars and pubs in Edinburgh for the Six Nations.

If you're looking for somewhere a little more low-key to catch all the on-pitch action, head over to American-style pool bar, Marcos. While it's set to screen every match live, it also offers unbeatable drinks and pool table deals to enjoy on those nail-biting game days. 

It might be famous for having the prettiest beer garden in the entire city, but The Pear Tree is also one of the best pubs to watch the Six Nations in Edinburgh. Boasting a humungous outdoor screen and numerous indoor TVs, this buzzing boozer is ideal for all the sports fixtures.

Sitting across the road from the prestigious McEwan Hall, Doctors is another popular Edinburgh pub for watching the rugby. And whether you're screaming for Scotland, willing a Wales victory or encouraging England, the warm and welcoming atmosphere here never disappoints.

Cool and quirky bar Pilgrim has bags of charm, boasting 100s of battered suitcases and a 1930s cinema setting. Pop over during the tournament and you can expect a warm atmosphere, friendly locals and a huge range of ales on tap.
