‘Scrum’ on down to select Hall & Woodhouse houses for 2023 Rugby World Cup

August 2023

A special outdoor pub experience for the Rugby World Cup is set to be available at select Hall & Woodhouse houses this September, including:

–  The Olive Branch in Wimborne, Dorset

– Goffs Manor in Crawley, West Sussex

– The De Havilland Arms in Fleet, Hampshire

– The Lighter Inn in Topsham, Devon

In time for kick off on 8th September, the pubs will erect an outdoor marquee, bringing rugby fans the atmosphere of the stadium in the comfort of their local pub.

A range of craft beers and real cask ales will be on offer to accompany a special sharing snack menu for guests watching the matches. The Hall & Woodhouse team will provide table service throughout, so fans can catch every key moment of the matches.

Greg Cox, General Manager of The Olive Branch, said: “Rugby is a sport that really brings the community together and creates an incredible atmosphere for fans to indulge in.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming guests to our family-friendly environment to meet up with their friends and enjoy the tournament with great food and drink – bringing the best of the Rugby World Cup to Wimborne.”

Select pubs will show all England games from 8th September, along with other main games throughout the tournament ending on 28th October. A special burger deal will be offered exclusively during the Rugby World Cup at participating houses only. For £15, fans will be able to enjoy any burger on the menu plus a pint of Outland Hazy IPA or Badger Beer, any soft drink, a 175ml house wine, or a pint of cider.

Tickets and bookings are not required to watch matches, and tables are offered on a first come first serve basis.
