Rugby fans, come on down and watch the Rugby World Cup 2023 with us at Moonwake Taproom in Leith.

Where better to enjoy this year’s tournament than a brewery taproom with the freshest beer pouring? In addition to our beers, we’ll have a selection of rotating guest beers, gluten-free and alcohol-free beer as well as wines, local spirits, soft drinks and Pizza Geeks delivering to your table – all you need to make a memorable experience.

We can’t wait to welcome you to enjoy all the action the Rugby World Cup has to offer. Whether you’re a rugby fan, looking to discover the best spots (and the best beer!), or just looking for a great time out in Edinburgh, come to Moonwake Taproom and soak up the atmosphere.

Check the fixtures during our opening hours and book your table now to avoid disappointment! We would get fully booked during the Six Nations earlier in the year.

We’ll see you at the bar.
