Description: Good old-fashioned British Pub serving the best traditional ales & ciders, continental beers, and delicious food. A must for any Rugby fan, this place is a mecca for locals looking to watch live matches. A fascinating pub with great locals, stacks of history, fantastic beer & food served by wonderful staff. What more could you ask for? - Oh and it's a stones-throw from where the game was invented!

The place to go at any time of night or day if you're looking for great beers and a lively atmosphere with friendly staff and clientele. Big for sports especially of course, Rugby.

Sell traditional ales in a traditional environment. It's refreshing to have classy pubs like this in Rugby, which is otherwise littered with very mediocre standard of public houses

10 real ales on hand pump is really something!
The décor is fabulous for a beer buff- a vast array of pub memorabilia.

The food is good quality pub grub

Having lived in Rugby for many years I have been to The Merchants many times with friends or family. The atmosphere is always buzzing and the variety of beers on offer is always great, normally try something new but there are also some well known names for those times when you are feeling less adventurous. There is often love music or sport on.
