Watch the Six Nations: The best sports pubs in Stratford

One of the biggest sporting events of the year is just around the corner. The Six Nations Championship will be hitting our screens on Saturday 1st February. Have you decided where you’ll be watching it yet? If you fancy getting involved in the action, we’ve rounded up some of the best sports pubs in Stratford who will be showing the matches. Great atmosphere guaranteed!


Building S5, Unit 5, IQL, London, E20 1HZ  

For delicious local beers alongside the usual favourites, head to OutPost and catch all the Six Nations games on the big screen in the bar. If you’re looking for a bite to eat during the game, OutPost makes incredible pizzas and there’s veggie, vegan, and gluten-free options available. For those early afternoon games, make sure to snap up their lunchtime deal – a 12” pizza and a drink for £12 every day between 12-3pm. Make sure to book ahead to guarantee a spot and come along to watch every game! 


Bat and Ball 

2 Montfichet Road Westfield, London E20 1EJ  

Bat and Ball is truly one of the best sports pubs in Stratford with big screens showing coverage of every Six Nations game, and for some half-time entertainment you can head to one of the many ping-pong tables and challenge your friends to a quick game.  

Known for their great pizza, delicious burgers and extensive drinks menu, you’ll be happy to stay long after the game has ended. Book your table so you don’t miss out.  


The Sportsman 

78-102 Broadway, London E15 1NG 

Catch every moment of every game live at The Sportsman paired with a great-value burger and drink deal. If you don’t fancy a burger, sample a small plate or tuck into some classic pub grub and browse the fully stocked drinks menu to quench your thirst.  

Book a table for the games of your choice and get the best seat in the house. 


The Abbey Tap 

12-14 Broadway, London E15 4QS  

The Abbey Tap is home to massive HD screens for the ideal viewing experience alongside an impressive selection of craft beer and great food and drinks options. Try a sharing plate with your friends or snap up a classic burger or pizza to keep you satisfied and ready for the excitement.  

If craft beer isn’t for you, The Abbey Tap has a fully stocked bar of spirits, wine, and soft drinks – they particularly pride themselves on their gin! Grab a drink and settle down at your pre-booked table, ready for the action. 


The Cow 

4 Chestnut Plaza, Montfichet Rd, London E20 1GL  

A short walk from Stratford station, The Cow may not be first choice when you think of sports pubs in Stratford, but the great environment and delicious food makes the experience a worthwhile one. They specialise in steaks and pub classics such as fish and chips, with a drinks menu full of craft beers and expertly-made cocktails.
