All the best bars in Leeds to watch the Six Nations matches

We’ve found all the places to watch the Six Nations this month.

It all kicks off this Saturday.

It feels as though it was only yesterday we were sat in the pub, watching the 2020 Six Nations games in a world that was about to be locked down. In the past two years, a whole lot has changed- including the local watering holes.

In a world where there’s no longer a looming lockdown, we finally have the chance to make the most of the local sports bars and watch the rugby in the company of like-minded fans. Whether you’re secretly rooting for Wales to keep hold of the title or ready to cheer on England this year, we’ve found all the best places to go and pull up a seat in Leeds.

The Box

The Box have locations in the city centre and Headingley, so you’re never far from a cold pint of Budweiser or a bottle of wine. You can grab 2-for-1 cocktails, a 20% student discount and a pornstar martinis, served by the stein here too but if that’s not enough, they’re encouraging customers to try out their Burger De Paris, which is back for a limited time only. The Six Nations themed burger is a double beef burger, garlic mushrooms, crispy onions, deep fried Brie and peppercorn sauce.

You can bet your bottom dollar that Walkabout will be saying G’day to the Six Nations and serving up a feast whilst the matches play out. The Australian-themed sports bar boast space indoors and outdoors, as well as in their dedicated live sports areas, but booking is recommended to make sure you get a spot at the table before kickoff. Expect massive HD screens, a roaring atmosphere as well as food options like their dedicated Six Nations burger and the option to buy Brewdog by the keg.

If you want somewhere to watch the Six Nations where you’ll be guaranteed some decent draught lagers and a selection of feel-good food, look no further than Beer Hawk. With resident chefs from Slap and Pickle and an ever-changing selection of craft beers on tap and in the fridge, they’ve got everything to keep your night cheery- even if your team loses. Make sure you get in advance though, we doubt there will be seats otherwise.

Skyrack Headingley

You might recognise Skyrack from your Otley Run days, but the pub does far more than just fancy dress. Pull up a chair at the bar or find a seat around the pub in between the Leeds United memorabilia and watch all five rounds in the company of fans of all six nations. Same goes for the rest of the Greene King pubs in Leeds, all games will be shown (we just like Skyrack the best).

Hyde Park Pub

Another Otley Run favourite that’s taking on the additional crowds for the rugby. Expect loud speakers, the occasional fancy dress customer and loads to do besides watching the matches. There’s pool tables, giant food challenges and a great beer garden- not to mention a full menu that includes student discounted pints. If you’re still at University, we bet we’ll find you here for the matches.
