Fairly new to Lewes, been to a few pubs but not many with TVs that I can think of. Is there anyone going to a pub to watch the six nations on Friday night? If not, any sports-orientated pubs anyone can recommend?

There's only one pub worth considdering....the Elly mentioned above. Get there early if you want to sit down, it'll be rammed.

Friday's match between Wales and England will be first time that Lewes Working Men's Club has shown the Six Nations. On Saturday we will be showing the Tottenham v Arsenal premiership match, then the Six Nations match Ireland V Italy, followed by France v Scotland. I will have the big screen on and we have plenty of seats, Families are welcome to watch all the games
The other places to watch the six nations are the Brewers, and the Elephant and Castle.

I guess I'm a little biased, but I'd say the Elly. We have a new, wide screen HD projector downstairs along with 4 other TVs. We'll also be opening upstairs (which has an even bigger, HD projector and will have a bar) for all England games except next week's Italy match.
Other pubs that I know will be showing the matches are the Brewers Arms, Gardeners, Black Horse, Royal Oak, Volunteer and Tally Ho. Apart from the Working Men's (as mentioned above) I'm not sure if any others have TVs

I am glad we can all help, thank you asking Mike. Where ever you watch the match, hopefully some great Rugby is played. I do not know who is going to win the Six Nations, bit I think it is going to be the most interesting in years.

Thanks to the England injury toll, I'll be watching the England - Wales match from behind the sofa and with fingers over my eyes! I remember only too well the match two years ago and back to the 70's with Welsh dominance.....
However, allez les blancs !

It is a pity for England. Wales needed a stern test to up the ante for Australia in September.
Fingers crossed the referee controls the game as he should. Minimal TMO etc.

Wales won the first half, and England managed to win the second half and the match. It will be interesting to see how Ireland play tomorrow, and I dare not try to predict the France Scotland match. Never underestimate the French. What ever the result I am hoping to see some great Rugby being played.
