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!

What a great evening at the Merchants for the start of “Gin Week”. A lovely lemon sole meal, freshly prepared and very tasty, accompanied, of course, with a gorgeous gin from the 100 on selection this week. Lovely friendly, welcoming and efficient staff and a quiz took us through the evening with lots of laughs. I will certainly return to this pub.

I went to the pub with a bunch of friends on bank holiday Monday to catch the tail end of their beer festival. We thoroughly enjoyed the quiz night and we were only charged £1 per a person to enter. What makes this even better is the Merchants are donating all quiz proceeds to the local hospital. The staff here are ever so friendly and always happy to help. They allow you to taste their beers before you buy to make sure that they meet to your needs. Charlie, the quiz master, was brilliant despite being heckled by some quiz teams. We will definitely attend another quiz night in the near future! Thank you for a good night!

We went here on Saturday as my husband and our son in law love this pub for its selection of beer. Can l just say how lovely and efficient the staff are, nothing is to much trouble for them and you get all that with a smile and a chat. The food is wonderful, although l would recommend having fries with the fish instead of the fat chips. I would have no problem with recommending this pub for good food and great service, obviously because of the selection of beers and all the above we will be returning. For some reason again l am unable to give a rating for service, food and value which would have been five star.

The staff are very helpful. We had help choosing a real cider and after sampling had the Thatchers Original. This pub not only has a food menu, but a gin menu as well.

There are tv's for sports enthusiasts and in May a beer festival.

As a recent mover to Rugby, I'll come here again.
