Best Pubs to watch Rugby in Edinburgh

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.
