About our venue

The Shakespeare is located in the centre of Edinburgh. It is one of the oldest pubs in the City and was built at the same time as the theatres were erected to cater for the actors and theatre crowds of that age. We have comfy seating and fixtures and fittings, tables and chairs etc. Today, this pub attracts a cosmopolitan crowd and, rather unusually for a City Centre venue, a really good base of regulars. Shoppers, business people, students and tourists come to this friendly pub for their lunch, served from the John Barras menu to be eaten anywhere in the bar. Sport is very important here and we show anything and everything with the emphasis being on football. We have an eight foot and ten foot screen at either end of the one bar area so there is no chance of missing the goal! With so much on offer, along with a weekly quiz and fortnightly karaoke, come along soon and enjoy a good sociable night out. Everyone at the Shakespeare looks forward to seeing you.
