57 Allen Road, Hackney, London, N16 8RY

The Shakespeare is an honest-to-goodness proper pub. Located slap bang in the middle of Stoke Newington it stands proudly unaffected by the passing of time, with traditional interiors that have been lovingly maintained.

Focused solely on serving excellent drinks in a cosy and welcoming space, the good old Shakespeare is part of a dying breed of old-fashioned pubs. We have a working fireplace to keep your toes toasty in the winter, TVs for the footie, a quiz night and in true London boozer tradition we also have a jar of pickled eggs on the bar.

We offer a fantastic selection of ales and lagers, including our ever popular draught Belgian beer, alongside a thoughtful wine list and more spirits than you can shake a candy cane at. Each drink is carefully stored, expertly poured and lovingly served. Forget calling us The Shakespeare, we should be called The Shakesbeer! That was a good one, right?
