This Stratford-upon-Avon pub has everything you need to watch the Six Nations

You’ll have the best seat in the house with great drinks, food and a magical matchday atmosphere

The dust has finally settled on last autumn’s World Cup, and rugby fans across the country are getting ready for this year’s Six Nations Championship.

The annual festival of rugby kicks off in Marseille on Friday, February 2 as holders Ireland travel to 2023 runners-up, France.

The following day, England will get underway with a trip to Rome to face Italy, before Wales welcome Scotland to Cardiff to round off week one.

If you can’t make it to the matches, then where better to enjoy the action than in a cosy pub with great drinks and delicious food, surrounded by friends, passionate fans and friendly staff?

The Rose & Crown – arguably Stratford-upon-Avon’s best pub for rugby fans – will be showing every single match of this year’s Six Nations, giving you the best seat in the house.

Built in 1596, The Rose & Crown is a real piece of living history in the town. Its stunningly preserved half-timbered exterior is typical of the era, and there are lots of captivating features inside too, like the wooden pews and leather banquettes used for seating, exposed beams and that magnificent bar.

Rugby fans need good views, and you most certainly get them here – in fact, the pub is so deceptively spacious once you get inside that it is often compared to Dr Who’s Tardis!

There’s more to discover outside, with an extensive beer garden which is just perfect for relaxing with your mates and chatting about the match.

Pubgoers will be able to enjoy a limited-edition beer, Scrumdown, created by Greene King to celebrate the great tournament. The 4.1% fresh golden ale has tropical and citrus notes and is an easy drinking and refreshing cask ale. Made with classic English hops, this is the perfect pint to enjoy during the games.

Additionally, the pub boasts an extensive drinks menu with Guinness available on tap, plus a range of premium beers, cocktails, wines, spirits, and more.

So, immerse yourself in the magical matchday atmosphere and get yourself in prime position for the action by booking your table in advance.
