If a trip to France is out of the question (Air Traffic Control you may have a lot to answer for here), where better to watch the Rugby World Cup than in London’s finest pubs.

From 8th September until 28th October, our award-winning collection of pubs will show all the action in what could be the most exciting and unpredictable tournament yet.

England’s recent defeat against Fiji and New Zealand’s disappointing outing against South Africa means past expectations are out the window and everything is to play for.

Whether you wish to watch the match in your own private room, prop up the bar as you talk tries and conversions, rub shoulders with other rugby fans in spaces that seat 150 people or enjoy dinner as you watch the game, Three Cheers pubs provide the perfect viewing option. Please call in advance to reserve a table.

Check out details of screens and private rooms below. Please note The Bolingbroke in Battersea remains a sport-free zone.

The Bedford, Balham

The Bedford is the pub for the dedicated rugby fan. They offer a four-tier ticket system:

  1. ‘Fully Loaded’ gets you a seat, a meal and a pint for ALL England games in our iconic Club Room with its 4.5 metre screen. It also ensures entry for any further England games during the knockout stages. £90.
  2. ‘Pay Per Match’ ensures entry, a meal and a pint for any England game. £22.50.
  3. ‘We Believe’ is FREE and suitable for groups of six who wish to watch the match in our beautiful Ballroom with its 3-metre screen. You can pre-order your food and drink beforehand to ensure the ultimate in table service.
  4. ‘The Chancer’ is for anyone who likes to fly by the seat of their pants. It’s not really a ticket at all, it’s a promise to our more spontaneous customers that our Main Bar, with its two 2-metre projectors and two HD TV screens, will always take walk-ins (until we reach capacity).
