The Six Nations is back, keeping rugby fans on the edge of their seats over five weekends from 2 February to 16 March 2024. Unless you’re lucky enough to be watching inside one of the six host stadiums, the next best thing is the atmosphere at a packed-out pub or bar.

Our handy round-up of places showing the tournament is here to ensure you don’t miss a single try, with some scrum-ptious food and drink offers thrown in for good measure.

Bristol Bears star forward Ellis Genge will be representing England in the tournament.
