Graham Coombs left this review about Shakespeare's Head

Located next to the iconic Carnaby Street sign this is not a bad pub although some of the prices are clearly designed to punish the tourists. A traditional bar with leaded windows and some spurious woodwork and half-timbering. Greene King beers with guests.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Shakespeare's Head

Located in a pedestrianised area off the main part of Great Marlborough Street, this Greene King outlet can be quite hard to track down if using the address alone as it actually appears to be in Carnaby Street. However, once found, you find a rectangular bar with just the sort of traditional furniture and decor that the crowds of tourists no doubt hope to find. Limited seating space supplemented by an upstairs room (not visited) and patio tables out front. Four handpumps, three of which were operational on this visit - IPA and two from Wimbledon: Copper Leaf and the XXK winter ale (£4.95).

A square roomed pub on the end of Carnaby Street,several beers ranging from the ordinary to the slightly more interesting but being such a tourist magnet it can be a bit of a mission getting served, personally I would bypass this and carry on down into Soho.
