Six Great Places to Watch the Six Nations
The Guinness Six Nations Championship kicks off this weekend, so don't miss a tackle or a try as we round up the best places to watch the highly-anticipated first round
The 2024 Six Nations kicks off on 2nd February at 8pm when France host champions Ireland, and England kick-off their tournament at 2.15pm on 3rd February against Italy. As things stand, Ireland and France are the bookies’ favourites, with England lagging behind.
Golden Square, Bank Hill, Berwick TD15 1BG
With a pool table and HD screens, the Leaping Salmon is a cosy place to support sport. Even better, this venue is dog friendly, so you can bring your four-legged friends along too. Order shots of baby Guinness to get in the spirit.
2a Hancock Street, Newcastle NE2 4PU
With BT Sport and Sky Sports access, The Hancock is a popular pub for sports fans, so head along early to bag a table. It also means there’s always a great atmosphere that you just won’t get from your sofa at home. Of course there’s lager and craft beer on tap too.
236–248 Bishopton Road West, Fairfield, Stockton TS19 7HE
There’s a screen in every corner of this Teesside favourite so you won’t miss a moment of the action. Plus, food is served ’til late so you can enjoy some good pub grub whilst you watch. From Thursday to Saturday, celebrate (hopefully) with a bottle of bubbly for just £15.
Tank & Paddle
Merchant Exchange, York YO1 6DD
As well as their huge HD screens, Tank & Paddle promise the widest selection of craft beer around and good food and drink deals (including pizza or burger and a drink from £13.50). For that reason, the team recommend you book a table for the busiest rugby event of the year.
The Sloop Inn
46 Beckside, Beverley HU17 0PD
This cheery local in the market town of Beverley shows live sport on HD screens every day – so as you can imagine, the Six Nations screenings are sure to be lively as many cheer on the titans of rugby.
1–3 Hunslet Road, Leeds LS10 1JQ
Leeds locals can watch the game with premium craft beers and snacks at The Adelphi but you’re advised to reserve a table for the best seats in the (public) house. Order a selection of small plates from grilled goats’ cheese to crispy calamari to keep you going.
Fixtures will be shown on both BBC and ITV. Live streams will be available on the BBC iPlayer and ITVX apps.
