With autumn well and truly underway, the golden leaves of the upcoming months promises to fall upon on what can only be described at the most nail biting championship in the Rugby Calendar. Hosted in the wonderful Asian country of Japan, The Rugby World Cup 2019 will hopefully be the year that one of the British Isles takes home the trophy once and for all. 

With England captained by the always incredible Owen Farrell and winning their first match against Tonga with a whopping 35-3 defeat – can this be the year of the roses with Farrell and the boys bringing home the title? The match saw team captain Owen Farrell become the top scorer with 15 points and amazing play by Manu Tuilagi scoring 2 tries in the first half. It is time for the boys in white to put the Six Nations disappointment behind them and channel all their power into defeating the power houses of New Zealand’s All Blacks. 

Leading the squad for Wales is Alun Wyn Jones. After an almighty championship run at the Six Nations, is it the time for Wales to pull out all the stops and show the World what they can really do. With their first match against Georgia – the mighty Welsh dragons just need to keep their cool and poise in order to power through the upcoming rounds. 

So with the Rugby World Cup Final just over a month away, the world’s eyes will be glued to screens to witness what will hopefully be a win for one of our amazing British teams. Hosting a range of wide screen TV’s, great deals of beers and ciders and enough spirits to take your fancy – we can bet there is no better place to catch all of the live Rugby action than right here at Hogarth’s. 

So whether you’re an English Rose, a Welsh Dragon or simply just fancy catching some superb sport in the best gin bar – get yourselves to Hogarths and lets cheer the boys on! 

Across the country, many bright eyed and bushy tailed young people are getting ready to travel and set up a new life at their upcoming universities. The next few weeks will see overloads of Ikea furniture travelling up and down the motorways and eager 18-19 year olds getting themselves ready for the most important two weeks of their university initiation – fresher’s.

No matter what university you attend, you are guaranteed to have a fresher’s week of a lifetime. Themed events, special discounts, offers and countless incentives at bars and enough fancy dress parties to keep your creative juices flowing – Fresher’s week is a date in the university calendar that no one wants to miss.

All Hogarths bars provide the perfect environment to ask new housemates and course mates to meet and enjoy a drink round a table to get to know each other. We provide plenty of private booth seating areas and a cosy environment to make you feel you are in a home from home.

Should you join any societies and groups our bars provide the perfect location to gather.

A perfect way to get to know your new friends is by sharing. Our gin sharing trays are just the ticket – with different flavours and gins to choose from you can all gather round and tuck in.
