The Merchants Inn

Voted the Best pub in Britain to watch the game of Rugby in by the world renown Melrose Seven's
2018 and 2019!
 
The Pub of Rugby and winner of The Coventry and Warwickshire Tourism Award for Best Pub 2015
 
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 3 house beers, Nethergate Venture, Purity Mad Goose and Oakham Bishops Farewell and have a selection of 4 -6 guest ales rotating regularly and we were awarded The 'Puritan' Pub of the Year 2015 by The Purity Brewing Co.
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 (100+) of Belgian, German and American craft beers.
 
 

The Home of The Game

 
When visiting the home of Rugby you'll want to visit a pub that is the heart of the game, 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, Wasps, 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. We will be showng Aviva premiership and European cup games 
 
 

Food

 
We serve lunch from 12-3 Monday to Thursday, 12-7pm Friday and our Sunday Lunch, 12-5pm is legendary, and we very busy between 12-5pm, so book in advance. Our motto is 'Local, Seasonal, Fresh' as everything is sourced as close as humanly possible and our chefs don't bring anything in prepared - everything is made fresh.
