This restaurant had suuuuch delicious food! It is so heart warming and is such a characteristic place to eat. I recommend the rib eye steak, it was so nice and cooked perfectly! The only thing I would try and improve would be that there could be a few more dishes that aren't all meat! Maybe some ones with fish and... More

We enjoyed a very good meal at Shakesby's. It was quiet by London standards - on a Tuesday in August we were the last guests by 9:30 - but the food was perfect. Medium rare beef Wellington with crisp pastry. Sausage and mash, which they were happy to do from the early bird menu. And a great rib eye steak... More

Arranged to meet a friend to eat with a plan to try the 'beat the clock' menu. The restaurant was empty, we were not offered beat the clock. We were offered a table at 7:15 pm ( we arrived at 5:20) with a disdainful look from the bar waitress. Will not be going back or attempting to try their food.... More

Came to Shakesbys for a birthday meal. The food and atmosphere was great. We were greeted and offered a drink at the bar while we chose our food. The food was faultless. Absolutely delicious! An excellent choice for a meal and reasonably priced for good quality food. Will definitely return and would recommend to everyone.

Visited here on Saturday 2nd of August for a meal with my wife to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was our first visit here and it was fantastic from start to finish. Couldn't fault the service or food. Will definitely be returning here in the future. Well done Shakesby's.

Having previously booked this venue for my group's meal out. The Chef/Owner, Mark, was still very courteous when our group numbers had dwindled and was still able to provide the advised set menu. Albeit the lower grade for the service (4* as the waitresses twice were queried re our menu choices), the food was tasty and well proportioned for the... More

This is a surprising restaurant, nice contemporary bar area, with anoldie world restaurant area with quite an intimate feel overhaul to it. Excellent food and service, although a little expensive. Well worth a visit
