Graham Coombs left this review about The Shakespeare

A medium-sized Nicholson's house, handy for New Street station. One room, decorated in the usual faux Victorian style, with a small raised area to the front and a large open space in the centre. To the rear is a tabled dining area. A few interesting features include an M&B tessellated floor at the entrance and some nice tiling down the side. A fair selection of ales on pump with Purity Ubu and Bunny Hops, Rudgate Hop for Heroes, a St Austell seasonal and the house ale, also from St Austell. And Doom Bar, of course.

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!
