Day 6 – 45 Days of Rugby

We’re nearly up to the first week of my collection of images of places and people here in the birthplace of the game, all taken on my travels around my hometown and are connected to the game in some way or another.

Today, we have moved literally a few steps around the corner from the Webb Ellis Rugby Football Museum to another establishment celebrating one of Rugby's famous sons.

This time The William Webb Ellis public house. It would perhaps be wrong to not have an establishment of this ilk that celebrates the man who helped shape the game of rugby we know today. And beer and rugby do go hand in hand so to speak.

'The Webb' as it is still known locally is another one of Rugby's fine hostelries that has been part of the fabric of the town centre for many years (in fact it was one of my first haunts when I first started frequenting the town's pubs). And there is a connection to the sport of rugby, and not only by name.

Pop in and you can expect to see a variety of rugby memorabilia and photographs inside, as well getting to choose from a very decent selection of real ales. Bar food is also served on a lunch time and evenings, and comes very well regarded.

'The Webb' as it is known is worth a visit and popping in as part of any visit to the birthplace of rugby.
