Will Wales retain their title? Or will England snatch the trophy from their grasp? We can’t predict the winner, but we can guarantee that this year’s Guinness Six Nations Rugby Championship will be packed with thrills and spills – especially at these top spots…

The Mayfair

Watch the games unfold live on multiple HD screens around this pub. Home to the 2 Pint Pot, you’re guaranteed to not miss out on any action with their two-pint glasses. And while you’re there, why not treat yourself to some scran with their Six Nations sharer? From haggis Scotch egg to mini prosciutto flatbread pizzas, get a taste of more than just glory from these noble nations.




Paddy Fest 2022

Catch the final day of Six Nations action live on two giant LED screens in Times Square. With Guinness sponsoring the games, not only can you watch the final here, but you can have a day of proper Irish craic inside a huge Oktoberfest style tent, dance on the benches to live Irish bands and consume plenty of pints of Guinness. The luck of the Irish!





Home to Fanzone, BrewDog is top of our list for where to watch the Six Nations. Expect great sport and even better beer. Here you can kick back with a cracking pint and watch the match with a front row seat, surrounded by other rugby fans all cheering along together – think good vibes and great company, all washed down with a refreshing pint.


Shark Club

With what feels like thousands of TV screens, as well as sports-day classics on the menu (think chicken wings, burgers and nachos), here there will be a top atmosphere to get your rugby rush. Whether you’re a pint lover or fancy a cheeky cocktail, there’s plenty on the menu to choose from to help you celebrate (or to drown your sorrows with, either way).




Percy Arms

Percy Arms is showing every scrum, tackle and try live from 5th February on their collection of HD screens. As well as serving those proper pub vibes that we love and the chance to sit at the best seats in the house, they also have a pool table if you fancy a halftime game.




Old George Inn

Head down to Newcastle’s oldest pub, dating back to 1582, where they’ve got all the Six Nations action on their HD screens for rugby fans to enjoy. From their wide selection of craft beer to fabulous food and drink deals, including their hand-stretch pizza and drink deal, the Old George is the perfect host for your rugby rush.


Victoria Comet

Watch all the gripping action from the Six Nations with a delicious drink in your hand from the Victoria Comet’s extensive ale and gin range and a selection of moreish bar snacks. Sit back and relax while you bask in the atmosphere of this iconic pub and enjoy all the European rugby titans battling for glory.




Pacific House

If you’re looking for a sporting stalwart that won’t let you down, then Pacific House is your bar. They’ve always been one of our go-tos for live matches. With 13 screens showing all the hottest sporting action, you’ll not miss a single kick, ruck or try. Oh, while you’re here, make sure to order at least one of their three flavours of The Newcastle Distillery Co. gin – they’re amaze.




The Forth Hotel

Epitomising urban cool, The Forth mixes a stylish, contemporary bar with classic pub features and a handful of quirky touches – think exposed brickwork, statement chandeliers, cosy open firesand local artwork adorning the walls. Order your favourite pint and watch every single moment from the Six Nations live and in HD.
