Business overview

Shakespeares re-opened on the 20th July 2011, just in time for the Tramlines Music Festival, after an 18 month period of closure after the well known live music venue was closed by Punch Taverns in early 2010. The pub was rescued by Real Ale & Music fan William Wagstaff, of The New Beehive Inn in Bradford and extensively refurbished and restored to its former glory as a Georgian Coaching Inn. In April 2013, Sheffield CAMRA awared Shakespeares with the coveted Pub Of The Year 2013, a highly distinguished accolade considering the level of competition in the city.

Situated on the famous Don Valley real ale trail between Kelham Island and the city center, since opening Shakespeares has firmly established itself on the real ale map of Sheffield, and in the first two years after reopening the doors served over 1400 different real ales from near and far, always featuring locALE on the bar from Sheffield's excellent breweries as well as new and rare beers from across the UK.

Good ales

Very cosy pub which sometimes seems be a meeting place for folky musicians and students, tons of atmosphere and some cracking real ales.
