An old merchant house, The Shakespeare Tavern is located in the centre of Bristol by the docks. With a fantastic atmosphere, everyone is made to feel welcome in this popular trouble free pub. Freshly cooked, hearty pub food is served daily from our own extensive menu which includes old favourites such as our steak & ale pie. The menu changes regularly, so there are always new dishes to choose from! During weekday lunchtimes and throughout the day workers and business people enjoy spending their dinner hour here by dropping in for a bite to eat or a quiet drink. We have four real ales on offer and are a Cask Marque award winning pub. This 17th Century pub with traditional features, such as oak beams, is in the evening time an excellent place to soak up the atmosphere and have a good drink with friends. Regulars include dockers and boatmen who like to relax after a hard day at work. If it's a town pub with long-established values you are looking for, then the Shakespeare is always well worth a visit.
