Why locals recommend it
An off-the-beaten-path neighbourhood pub packed with locals for when you want to escape the hectic noise of Kingsland Road. The Shakespeare has a nice cool relaxed vibe. Try the Litovel lager on tap, and settle down to watch the football on one of the large screens. No food is served in the pub, unless you want crisps or pork scratchings for dinner. But don’t worry, you don’t need to go hungry. You can order from La Barca, the excellent pizza place next door, and eat it in the pub.
Tips from locals
Great, old fashioned English pub. No food served but you are welcome to bring your own or order in a pizza from next door.
A proper old school boozer in London which is still independently run. You can grab pizza from next door and eat in the pub.
Its a classic, pretty unadulterated North London boozer with a great jukebox and good beer
