Rob Hunter left this review about The Shakespeare

Called in yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon, there were four real ales on the bar consisting of Purity Ubu, Cotleigh Tawny Owl, Hadley Brewing Moonstone and of course the Nicholson's Pale Ale. One of the pumps that was off may have had a Doom Bar clip turned round.

I wasn't feeling particularly inspired by the line up and it seemed service wasn't going to happen any time soon anyway, so decided to leave and try elsewhere.

Quite a small Nicholson's right by New Street. Gets packed on match days. Good choice of beers alongside the usual Pale ale etc. On my recent visit there were 3 beers from Siren Craft - Sound Wave, Yu Lu and Mosaic. the 2 we tried were in good shape - my only gripe is the dreaded plastic glass. A sign of the times I suppose!

Fairly standard Nicholsons that I wandered into by mistake, meaning to go to the Good Beer Guide Shakespeare in Summer Row!

Seen it done a thousand times but decent beer and comfortable environment.
