With the Six Nations kicking off this weekend, it’s important to plan out where you’ll be watching the games. Whilst some of you might decide to put on some nibbles and stay inside your cosy cottage, some of you might be thinking about heading to a local pub to soak up the atmosphere.
But the Six Nations are a big event in the Welsh sporting calendar, so deciding which pub to head to can be a difficult decision. That’s where we come in. We’ve put together a shortlist of recommended pubs to help you narrow your choices!
First up, The Royal Oak in Fishguard. Located on Fishguard’s main Market Square, this local pub encapsulates the essence of a true country pub. With exposed stonework and a true community atmosphere, The Royal Oak has made a pretty irresistible case for why it’s included in this list. During the Six Nations, as well as showing the games you’ll be able to take advantage of a free roast chicken dinner at full time. With rugby, beer and chicken – you’re guaranteed to have a great day.
At The Bishops in St Davids, a similar deal is being offered. Located in the centre of the city, you can sit back and watch the games on a big screen before enjoying a free meal once the game has finished. The food on offer is roast chicken, stuffing, chips and gravy. Enjoy the full Welsh experience by enjoying the game in the city named after our Patron Saint of Wales and complete your weekend with a visit to St Davids Cathedral – hopefully the daffodils will be in full bloom during your visit!
If you’re looking for sports paired with delicious food, great drinks and a wonderful atmosphere, The Cove in Tenby is the place to be. This delightful eatery will be showing all of the Six Nations games but what makes The Cove a little different is the food and drink on offer. With a selection of wines, craft beers, lagers, gins and cocktails; there’s plenty to choose from to quench that thirst throughout the game and when it comes to food, it’s all about the sharing platters (see above). These mouth-watering platters locally sourced produce and quality ingredients; choose from the meat feast, the vegetables galore, the seafood lovers or the tex-mex to name a few! Booking is recommended.
The Old Point House in Angle is welcoming sports fans (and their dogs!) throughout the Six Nations season for each game. Take a stroll down from your cottage in the village and enjoy a refreshing drink whilst cosying up to the log fire and watching the game. Pints of Worthington are on special offer down to £2.80 and they will also be hosting a curry night on the evening of the 3rd after the Wales v Scotland match.
Now you’ve heard our recommendations, but where will you choose?
