Make a quick trip from the Battersea Arts Centre to the eclectic Four Thieves pub at 51 Lavender Gardens to sip some ale from its own microbrewery while you watch 26 players churn up a pitch onscreen. Housed within an old Victorian music hall – the site of the original Jongleurs comedy club – The Four Thieves today is a maze of kitsch décor and rooms that include a split level bar and gin yard, complete with its own lavender roof. Rugby fans are welcome but if want to watch the final at The Four Thieves, please email them beforehand on hello@fourthieves.pub.
