Smack dab in your face when you walk out of Victoria's transportation hub, The Shakespeare is noisy from the outside, which is (as much as we hate to admit it) something that draws us most to a pub. It's one of the pubs in the Taylor-Walker line, so uniform across the board.

It's pretty average once you get inside. It's busy but the (several) times I went up to get a drink/food, I was served...more

Just ok! Nothing special, trust me! Your typical pub fate but terrible service. The worst thing were the signs all over telling you to watch your purse and bags because of thieves. Closed circuit TV's were everywhere too. Seems like they have a major problem in this pub! I would avoid it. Plenty other great pubs in the area.more

Finally, we decided to leave and cancel our order after we noticed another guest canceling their order after receiving a raw plate of...more

Okay pub right in the heart of Victoria Station area.

Got right into town and out of the Underground (subway). Immediately The Shakespeare beckoned us in for lunch as we were hungry after a long flight.

Fish and chips were just average. Rather disappointing as I would imagine London having some kick ass fish and chips. It was no better than getting fish and chips from a random San...more
