The Shakespeare Pub & Grille is an authentic British Pub that was established in August of 1990 and is both owned and operated by British Ex-Pats. The decor of the establishment couples the old world, English Tudor style on the interior (albeit with large picture windows) with a patio deck wrapping the exterior.

All of our menu items are made from scratch in the British comfort food style found in most establishments across the isles. Our authentic Fish and Chips are a favorite amongst the locals & have won numerous awards over the years. We use only top quality ingredients & all of our fried foods are cooked in trans fat, cholesterol free canola. We also serve standard fare of the western world such as Burgers and Salads.

Our Draught & Bottled Beers reflect the most popular brands from Britain, Ireland, mainland Europe and The U.S. and we are one of the select establishments in San Diego to have a beer engine and sell a Cask-Conditioned beer, often referred to as 'real ale', for the enjoyment of our beer connoisseurs!

We look forward to welcoming you and showing you why The Shakespeare Pub & Grille is San Diego's Original British Pub!
