The 6 Nations returns to the Crown and Shuttle with bookable spaces inside and out, and six huge screens throughout the venue so there'll be no scrummaging about to get a view of all the action. It's rugby, so the craft beer will be flowing from all three bars, and the much-needed soakage will be flying out of the food truck. Grab a seat, grab a menu, and grab a beer, because no one's going to the sin bin around here.

If you want to be a winner with your friends, take them down to watch the Six Nations at Rileys in Haymarket. With 34 TV screens and 4 giant screens, showing over 70 channels, you will always be close to the action. If you don't just want to watch sports, but play it too, they have numerous pool and ping pong tables. They have 4 bars including a luxury VIP viewing area to ensure waiting time is kept to a minimum. They offer American style food in their diner for that post match celebratory dinner.

Richmond & Kew
Bar / Restaurant

Let's be honest, it's no longer enough for a pub to provide you with a pint of Fosters and a small TV in the corner to watch the rugby. We are sophisticated people and we want more. Head to the Orange Tree for HD TVs and a 6 Nations three-course menu including baked pancetta wrapped cod loin with puy lentil stew, winter greens and clams sauce vierge. Plus, they're also offering the chance to win 6 Nation tickets!

Bar / Restaurant

You don't want to go to watch the match and find yourself surrounded by non-match watchers. Head to a sports bar where everyone there will be watching. Sports Bar and Grill has the sport but it also has good food (although keeping to the sporting classics of beers and hot dogs), an all right booze selection and modern, clean, décor. So you won't spend the match wondering whether the stain on the carpet is because someone died there.

The Queen Adelaide is passionate about rugby, but newcomers to the sport need not be afraid. A lovingly adorned blackboard lays out all the rules 'for dummies' - their words, not ours! You might go to this Putney gastropub for its hearty grub and weekly pub quiz, but you'll likely leave it as a powerhouse of rugby knowledge, with an overwhelming desire to top your kitchen table with a faux grass rugby pitch.
