Moby Duck left this review about Ye Shakespeare

The pleasing on the eye exterior gives way to a refurbed and modernised interior, there is a main room as you enter with various seating and bar to your right and a smaller room to the rear. Four beers were on, a fairly safe if not inspiring selection of Tribute, Otter Bitter, Bath Gem and Wye Valley HPA which was in passable condition. Nothing special there are many better pubs in the city but also worse.

Ye Shakespeare is a nice looking pub that is very close to the Kings Head.
Once inside there is an oblong shaped room with the bar on the right side,the left side of the room is carpeted and has bench seating and normal tables and chairs,there is a separate room to the rear which has a pool table in it.
There were four real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Bath Ales Summer Hare which went down well,the other beers were Wickwar BOB,Caledonian Golden XPA and Courage Directors.
I thought this was a decent pub to end my Bristol crawl in.

Blackthorn _ left this review about Ye Shakespeare

This looks a suitable olde worlde pub from the outside as you would expect from it's name. It doesn't seem quite as authentic inside though. Nothing particularly wrong with it, there's a wood beamed ceiling and an ornate carved wooden bar, but it doesn't have quite the quaintness that you might expect from the outside. A collection of about four fruit/quiz machines, a modern juke box and shiny metal lager fonts all conspire to remind you that this is the 21st century.

There is also a rear bar with a large pool table, although this was in darkness. Apparently there are pool tournaments on a Monday night, and poker tournaments on Wednesdays, although there was no evidence of that on our visit.

There were four beer pumps on the bar, although only two of these were in use serving Tribute and Gem. Good choice of ciders though, with Blackthorn, Stowford Press, Addlestones, Olde English and Gaymer's Pear (if you count that as a cider).
