The Shakespeare

2 Goswell Road, Barbican

A historic gastropub in the heart of the City

Welcome to The Shakespeare. A family-run, local favourite. Built in 1964, the name is inspired by the Bard himself, who lived some hundred metres away throughout his time in London.

Home to 'The Shakes Ink', a gin exclusively available behind our bar

and Ophelia's Cocktail Lounge which holds comedy nights and other events each evening.
