When in San Diego, Shakespeare’s is a great place to relax with some great food and drink as well as enjoy some of the finest British goods found outside of the U.K.
With a fantastic pub and shop, guests can dine or enjoy the finest of British ales, beers, and spirits either inside or on the enjoyable patio outside for those looking to enjoy the sun.
From the great décor including the humor cartoons in the restrooms and the friendly service, everything about Shakespeare’s is warm and inviting.
As a person who has a mother from Scotland and several relatives on the other side of the pond, the ability to get proper Sheppards Pie and Chips complete with the signatures peas was amazing. After a long drive over from AZ, the enjoyable lunch options were a delight. MY wife chose the fish and chips which are amongst the best you will find anywhere. The hearty portions even came with a side of gravy upon request. I decided to go one step further and got HP Brown sauce as well which is an absolute must.
From the Plowmans and traditional options to the amazing burgers and chips the menu has something for all tastes even those not quite ready to take on British cuisine. The chips were amazing as they were hand cut and had the perfect texture and taste for chips which recalled my grandmothers of my youth.
While I was not able to sample it on this trip, a traditional British Breakfast is also an option for those looking to start their day off with a hearty meal.
The locale also offers the best football matches live via satellite for expatriots looking or a taste of home. There is also a trivia night which promises to be an event not to miss.
At the other side of the compound, the shop offers an amazing High Tea with a dazzling selection of teas that will delight the senses. There are also several options for British souveniers and health and beauty aids such as Dettol, Germioline, and others. I for one was thrilled to find my favorite Pot Noodles as well as the scores of Walkers Crips and the candy and chocolate presented countless options as did the cookies, crackers, and delights of all sorts.
There was even a meat pie section as well as frozen delights. Shakespeare’s even offers Christmas specials such as Christmas Cake straight from the U.K.
We had a truly enjoyable stop and look forward to our next visit. I cannot recommend Shakespeare’s enough both for the shopping and for the fantastic food.
