WHERE TO WATCH THE RUGBY IN SWANSEA
The Autumn Rugby Internationals kick off this weekend with Wales playing Australia on Saturday at 2:30pm. We don’t know about you, but we’re getting excited about it.
Where will you be watching the match? Not sure yet? Well, here is our pick of the places to go in Swansea for the game.
YATES’ – 1 TO 4 CAER STREET, SA1 3PP
If you are looking for somewhere to watch the match in the city centre, there is nowhere better than Yates’. Located right next to the Castle Gardens and McDonalds, Yates’ is in a prime position at the end of Wind Street.
With a Tudor style exterior and modern up-to-date interior, 2 floors and 2 bars, it is a popular nightlife location and is known for its affordable prices. Plus there is a big screen and 10 smaller plasmas. So if you fancy a few beers while watching the match you’re in luck!
THE WIG – 134 ST. HELEN’S ROAD, SA1 4BL
If you’d prefer to watch the game in a classic pub environment head over to The Wig, where classic interior meets all the modern facilities. The Wig has recently been refurbished, and a comfy bar lounge was created, perfect for watching the game separately from the dining area.
Enjoy some traditional and warming pub grub from the kitchens here and there’s free WIFI for all guests if you want to discuss the game on social media.
Make sure to check out their ‘2 Can Dine for £9.99’ menu for a great bargain!
VARSITY – CASTLE SQUARE/WIND STREET, SA1 1DW
This is another great bar with a central Swansea location. With a laid back and friendly atmosphere, Varsity Swansea is a large and spacious venue where you’re sure to find a seat on match day.
Varsity also has the best meal deal in Swansea with 2 meals costing £7.95, all day every day.
THE PUMPHOUSE – MARITIME QUARTER, SA1 1TT
The Pumphouse is the best of both worlds, you can watch the game on one of its many screens and then at half time take in the waterfront views through the window. And the staff here aim to create a ‘community bar’ making it the place of choice for local and visiting drinkers alike.
This is a premium bar with a stylish décor and a grown-up atmosphere. They have a vast array of cask ales you just have to try.
THE GEORGE – 706 MUMBLES ROAD, SA3 4EH
Just outside the city in the beautiful seaside town of the Mumbles lies a fantastic pub and restaurant with lovely sea views.
The George has been a staple drinking establishment in the Mumbles for years and is popular thanks to its upstairs balconies providing ample outside space if you fancy a break away from the bar and TVs.
There is a varied menu here, so arrive early to sample the best bits!

Good luck Wales! We hope you win!
