Some people enjoy going to the stadium and feel the atmosphere of a rugby match first hand. Others, like me, enjoy watching the match on a nice screen while drinking a pint!
From Rugby to any other sport, these Edinburgh bars are brilliant for seeing sporting events.
My personal favourite. Great place for anyone that loves rugby! If you are passionate about rugby and love watching games with fans, this is the right place to go. It’s a cosy pub with great hand-pulled ales, fantastic bar food and friendly staff!

Good place to watch big sport matches, with a spacious basement bar. You get delicious chicken wing and rib platters and beer pitchers, then you can sit back and shout out at the TV. Do you want to relax after the match? Then play pool, darts & Pac-Man!!!

It’s a great social hub to enjoy good food and watch sport on 21 screens indoors or a large outdoor 200” TV screen in the courtyard.

Easy to access as it is just outside Waverly Central Station. You will find mostly a young audience as well as guests from the hostel residence next door.
Food and drinks are nice and cheap and the atmosphere is cheerful. It’s a great place if all you need is watching your rugby match and eat some classic bar food.
