“Best Fish & Chips in San Diego”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Here's a place to enjoy real British pub fare and imported brews in a real pub atmosphere with great and attentive service. There's an outdoor patio for dining but their indoors is very comfortable. This space usually hosts fans of soccer and other sports during the season with a big screen in the bar area. Be sure you are pulling for the "right" team !!

This pub and grill serves the best fish and chips in San Diego. Their secret is a perfect beer-battered cod served with fries and English peas. Lunch has one fillet but the regular menu also
available has two if you come very hungry. We have never been disappointed and iIt goes great with an English ale on tap.

Associated with the pub is a corner shop with many British items for purchase, from teas to pasties and candies. The shop also serves proper English tea which makes for a great social
occasion.

Looking for a British pub experience, then this is the place for you in San Diego. No reservations needed.

Good place to watch soccer games…the wait staff are friendly and efficient. Food is average, drinks are fine (good selection of beers)..I would return because if you love soccer …this place is an ideal place to view and discuss the matches…English hospitality…interesting place to visit.

“Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

With the windows open the cool ocean air was wonderful. Having a tall cider and a dish of Bangers and mash made it that much better. Memories of England was met here at Shakespeare Pub. Enjoy the experience and enjoy.

“A fun place”
Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

Had breakfast here on a Sunday morning. There are several big screen TVs going with soccer games playing. The clientele are dressed in their soccer shirts and enthusiastically enjoying the games. The servers are attentive and the food is good and priced well.

“Landing meal”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

Had a superb burger and beverage at Shakespeare once landed in San Diego - the outside patio area offered a pleasant setting, the service by Karen was wonderful, and loved the vines entwined on the two-story brick walls
