A Feast of Rugby

A Feast of Rugby

As keen rugby fans ourselves, this time of year provides an absolute feast of rugby so we thought we would give you a quick round up of the home matches which will be taking place this season at the Greenyards.

With some mouth-watering matches to look forward to in the Rugby World Cup in Japan this Autumn, Scotland’s home matches in the Six Nations early next year are the next chance to see the national team compete on home soil, and both matches are sure to be a sell-out. You could plan ahead and use the Borders Railway to combine the England or France game at Murrayfield with a lovely break here at Burts and Townhouse. After the game just jump on the train at Waverley and you can be back in Tweedbank in under an hour.

Scotland v England
Saturday 8 February

Scotland v France
Saturday 8 March

A perfect match

If you are planning on coming to enjoy the rugby in Melrose, do give us a call to book a table for lunch, dinner or you could even make the make the most of it with an overnight stay.
