Where to watch the Rugby World Cup 2019 in the Home Counties and London


The Rugby World Cup kicks off this year on Friday 20th September hosted in Japan and streamed across a number of our great pubs. We've compiled the ultimate list of some of our favourite pubs in and around Hertfordshire and London to watch all the action.

The White Hart in Hertford has quickly become the spot in town to catch every single sporting event, with 4 flat screen TVs around the inside of the pub and a warehouse in the courtyard full to the brim with atmosphere this is the place to be to celebrate each try and conversion. The beers will be pouring all through the day to help you cheer on England!




A member of the McMullen family since 1888, the Black Bull is a building of Special and Historical Interest steeped with character and charm that sits right in the heart of Buntingford. Hels and the team naturally portray that quintessentially family run business making you feel at home from the moment you step in the door. The cosy pub leads out to a massive garden, usually home to a bouncy castle and is the perfect location for watching sport of any kind on the garden TV.




If you want to surround yourself with a truly and exquisitely British experience then look no further than the Duchess of Cambridge in Windsor. The pub overlooks Windsor Castle right next to St George's Chapel and frequented by many a royalist looking for a touch of history and heritage. Here you can catch all the games whilst enjoying the best of British cuisine, Hertford brewed ale or barista coffee.




One of the most stunning pub interiors in the city of London, paired with honest pub grub and fantastic Hertfordshire brewed beers. Welcome to the Old Bank of England! With a number of screens inside you can watch every game whilst taking in the beauty of this unique pub and massive part of British history. Fancy a little al fresco sport? You're in luck as the OBE boasts a hidden sun trap garden at the rear for uninterrupted sporting viewing.




The Peahen has been a popular watering hole in St Albans from as far back as 1480! A pub steeped in history and experience, this is a great rugby fan's choice to watch the games. Our pub is also the locally famous bar of choice for the Saracens lads, namely Alex Goode who was still in the Peahen dressed in full kit over 24 hours after being named European Player of the year in the Champions Cup Final.




Situated on the corner of Vauxhall Bridge Road and Causton Street, The White Swan has been trading as a public house since 1759. The pub overlooks the Thames river where years previous a boat would dock taking prisoners from Millbank prison to Australia from the UK. Nowadays it is the local favourite for city workers and tourists alike, and a hub for watching sport on a number of flat screens around the pub. What makes this our pub of choice? Dogs.
