More info

If Shakespeare partied, we can guess he would have loved a good drink in a warm bar, arguing about politics and art. Channel the Bard at The Shakespeare Barbican, a welcoming family-owned pub right by Barbican station.

From the antique portraits adorning the walls to the resident black cat who reigns over the place, The Shakespeare is unique and homely. Famous for its home-cooked Anglo-Italian menu and its historic location (it stands where the old North Gate to the city once stood), this venue truly values tradition and passion! With comfy table, bar or couch seating, your party will have plenty of space to relax and enjoy delights from the kitchen and a wide range of wines, beers, cocktails or fruity shots. Like a good Shakespeare play, you decide if your night will be comedic, romantic or historic, but it certainly won’t be tragic if you celebrate here.

  • Tapiwa reserved November 22, 2018

    -Good vibe -Busy enough to not make the event awkward but sparse enough that we could get pints promptly on a Thursday night

  • Luke reserved March 23, 2018

    Great atmosphere , great service , great food

  • Adriana reserved March 6, 2017

    Very nice vibe. Good lighting and layout. No loud music, so we could all hear each other. We did not get welcome drinks for our party of 20, but the server was very patient and efficient with out large group.
