Rugby Round-Up

The Rugby World Cup 2015 kicks off on 18 September with England vs Fiji. Drop into the RWC 2015 Official Store in Covent Garden Market to get kitted out, then it’s off to Twickenham to support the Roses, or if you haven’t been successful in bagging yourself a ticket, perhaps a local bar showing the match.

It’s the first time England have hosted a Rugby World Cup since 1991 and it promises to be the biggest and best yet. Down at The Nook Bar they will be screening all the games, whilst serving homemade pizza to keep you fully fortified and ice cold Peroni at only £3.50 a pint.

Whatever country you are supporting you can catch all the games on huge 50” TV screens at The Old Bank of England, and of course, stay refreshed during the scrums and the tries with a pint of London Pride.

Irish supporters and friends are strongly advised to make a beeline for The Porterhouse where there is bound to be a sea of green and a great craic, and with a great choice of hand crafted ales, lagers and stouts on tap, there won’t be a dry mouth in the house.

Pint of Molsen Canadian anyone? The Maple Leaf is a pub with a great sporting tradition, and definitely the one we would recommend for expats supporting the Canadian team.

Belushi’s will be buzzing with Rugby World Cup fever, and every single game will be shown live on their giant screens, giving you a front row view of the action. With a great range of local and international beers and a killer menu of homemade burgers, wings and awesome bar snacks, Belushi's is the perfect place to catch all the action.

Last but not least, The Hercules Pillars is a great traditional pub, famous for their tasty sausages and excellent beers. You can enjoy the Cup with 50 of your closest friends in the comfort of their private room fully equipped with TV screen.
