...... We are the WINNERS in the Old Speckled Hen Best Fish & Chips in America competition! 

We are truly honored and excited to announce that The Shakespeare Pub & Grille has been voted Number ONE for the best fish and chips in America. Not only by our customers, but also British Brewmaster, Ross O'Hara and Export Director, Dave Patmore Hill of the Greene King Brewery, the UK's largest pub retailer and brewer.

This is not only a huge accolade for a local business, which has been part of the fabric in San Diego for the past twenty-seven years, but also for the city of San Diego itself.
