There’s nothing quite like a Six Nations day out to Twickenham Stadium and in the 2023 edition, England have three home games.


Best pubs near Twickenham Stadium for Six Nations games

Nearly a quarter of a million rugby fans will descend on ‘HQ’ for the clashes with Scotland, Italy and France during the Six Nations.

While there’s plenty of opportunity to wet your whistle at the stadium, where are the best pubs in Twickenham and the surrounding areas on a matchday? Here’s ten of our favourites…

The Cabbage Patch, London Road, Twickenham: ‘The most famous rugby pub in the world’ is a hive of activity on matchdays.

Royal Oak, Worton Road, Isleworth: A Fullers pub that boasts a great terrace and is around a 15-minute walk to the stadium – unfortunately it’s alongside the sewerage works!
