We came to Shakespeare's for lunch and it was amazing. The menu has loads of stuff on it including pub classics. We got burgers which were massive in a good way. The service was speedy and also very cheerful and chatty which made for a filling an fulfilling visit! Thank you Shakespeare's and we'll be back!

As Americans overseas, it's very hard to find good nachos and good guacamole abroad. This place had both! We were thoroughly satisfied with the food, and it definitely exceeded our expectations. The service was excellent. Our server was kind, attentive and friendly. Overall a fantastic experience- we will definitely recommend it to our friends.

A nice pub to get a couple of pints and a large grilled mix. That is what I usually order, I can say I have never been able to eat the rump steak that come along with the grill. You can actually break a glass with it in case of an emergency. Too hard! However, I enjoy the rest of it. The chicken breasts could be better as well but all in all, I come back time and time again so I guess It is not that bad.

From the minute we walked in to the pub, the customer service of the staff/management was fantastic. I stayed in Edinburgh for a few days and the Shakespeare pub was the last pub we visited, and was definitely the best by far. To add to that, The Shakespeare is in the heart of Edinburgh which is very handy. The atmosphere was friendly and inviting. We ordered food and we weren't waiting long at all until it came. There are plenty of screens in the pub depending on what you want to watch - there are different football matches/rugby games, this just adds to the buzz. 5 star for hospitality - Thank you. We will definitely be back. If you're travelling to Edinburgh, definitely the pub to go in.
