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 in order to cater for the actors and crowds of that age.

Come and enjoy our Great British New Menu, we have some delicious dishes we would like to share with you. We pride ourselves on serving truly splendid Great British pub food and can’t wait for you to try our new Taylor Walker Favourites Platter or our Lamb & Sweet Potato Pie. We also have some delicious new burgers, including our Pastrami Burger and our Chicken & Chorizo Burger.

We are proud to offer delicious Great British pub food and look forward to welcoming you with friendly smile.
