Rugby World Cup 2023: 15 Edinburgh pubs showing the Rugby World Cup - including Finnegan's Wake and Belushi's

The 2023 Rugby World Cup kicks off on Friday (September 8) evening in Paris – and several pubs around Edinburgh will be showing the action live on big screens.

Scotland come face to face with South Africa in their Rugby World Cup Pool B opener at the Stade Velodrome in Marseille on Sunday.

This weekend's match against the Springboks kicks off at 4.45pm, then the following Sunday it’s a 4.45pm start for the Tonga test and a 8pm start for the final group game against Ireland on Saturday, October 7.

In between, there’s plenty other exciting fixtures for rugby fans to sink their teeth into – and where better to watch the action than an Edinburgh boozer with a cold pint of beer.

For those looking to get out and catch a match, we’ve put together a list of 15 bars in the Capital where you can watch the 2023 Rugby World Cup.
