Welcome to The Merchants Inn

The Pub of Rugby

 
Welcome to Merchants Inn, where you'll find great beer and food but also see we're a little mad about our Real Ale and Rugby.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Nestled on Little Church Street in the heart of Rugby, there's no better place to drink great real ales and watch top live rugby.
 
 

Real Ales

 
We stock 4 house beers and have a selection of 4
-6 guest ales rotating regularly. During a regular week don't be surprised to see as many  as 25 different ales on tap.
 
For Real Ale lovers we also house one of the largest independent collections of brewery memorabilia in the country.
 
We also have a massive range (80+) of Belgian beers and craft beers.
 
 

The Home of The Game

 
With the Rugby World Cup happening here in the UK in the Autumn, you'll want to visit a pub that is the heart of Rugby, and that's The Merchants Inn. In fact you can actually see where the game was invented right from our front door. We have very good links with Rugby School, Leicester Tigers, Northampton Saints and The Matt Hampson Foundation.
 
The Merchants has a reputation for being the best place to watch live rugby. We have giant screens and an atmosphere that is second only to being there. 
 
 

Food

 
We serve lunch from 12-3 Monday to Friday but our Sunday Lunch is legendary, and is very busy between 12-5 every week so book in advance. Our food moto is 'Local, Seasonal, Fresh' as everything is sourced as close as humanly possible and our chefs don't bring anything in pre-pared - everything is made fresh.
 
 

Events & Beer and Food Festivals

 
We're always busy with something happening on a regular basis including live music EVERY TUESDAY. We host 2 beer festivals per year selling over 100 ales at each, 1 cider festival per year selling over 100 ciders, a Belgian Festival and  a German Festival every year.

You'll also have great fun on our theme nights like the increasingly famous annual Titanic Night.
