“Great traditional pub”

Loved it - great pub. We also called in to sister Shakespeare pub nearby. Great meal deals at both. Helpful and friendly staff. We visited 3 times in 2 days and will definitely call again next time in Birmingham

“Lovely lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Our friends and we had intended to eat at the next door College of Food but fortunately for us they were full and so we tried the Shakespeare Inn. We were delighted with our lunch. We had the back room all to ourselves and the staff could not have been more friendly and genuine. Two of us had the meal deal which was £7 including a drink and two of us had from the main menu. Then we had lovely fruit crumble and custard followed by coffee. The staff were interested in our views and we are very happy to recommend them highly to anyone looking for a reasonably priced, tasty meal in Birmingham

“Absolute jewel of a pub!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

This is a brilliant, tradition pub. Well located but quiet. I'd highly recommend this for a drink. There is a nice selection of draught ales and the seats are lovely and comfortable.
