I've been to Shakespeare performances from outdoor venues to the Globe. This was a fun, relaxed environment. Even balcony seats give an intimate feeling of being a fly on the wall. The company obviously enjoy themselves and react to the emotions of the audience. Unpretentious,...More

We had a great time here. I'm not generally a huge Shakespeare fan, but this company made Shakespeare interesting and relatable. We saw A Comedy of Errors, which was hilarious with their physical comedy. Everyone did a great job, really giving it their all. The...More

This is a fine place for a pre-show meal at the Shakespeare Tavern. Obviously convenient. Food is served cafeteria style, and is fine for what it is. Pub food: Shepherd's pie, Cornish pasty, etc. Reasonably priced.
