Alan Winfield left this review about The Shakespeare

The Shakespeare looks like a really nice pub from the outside and the old style road signs on the outside of it looked nice.
Once inside there is a small room to the front left and an open area to the front right,which has a darts board,the main room is to the rear,this is a long oblong shaped room with the bar on the left side,the front area of this room is bare boarded,the rear area is down one step and is carpeted and looks smarter,there is comfy bench seating facing the bar with chairs,the rear area has bench seating and chairs.
There were two real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Marstons EPA,which was not on top form and was just drinkable,the other real ale was Banks's Bitter.
There was a TV on showing BBC news.
The pub was empty on our Saturday dinner visit.
This is a decent enough pub,just a shame the Marstons EPA was not up to scratch.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Shakespeare

A Marston's house with four handpumps, of which three were on. These were a Banks bitter, Banks Mild and Boondoggle. The interior was traditional in décor and had a good atmosphere created by the friendly landlady. The pub consisted of a lobby entrance with a tiled floor and a dartboard. There was also a small room on the left hosting a pool table. The main room consisted of the original bar counter on the left a wood burning stove with lots of brassware surrounding it. The rear part of the pub was mainly set out for dining.

Old Boots left this review about Shakespeare Inn

This may have changed hands as whatever other faults it may have poor beer isn't one of them. It is a long thin pub, with the counter well back from the High St end door and down a small flight of steps. Two handpumps with Banks's flavour of the month beers on, World Cup theme this month. Traditional pub furnishing of a few chairs with a odd bareboard and carpet mix. Low rent punters and staff but ok and the beer was fine.
