Alex says

Situated in the old Williams Club building, which is now a hotel, The Shakepeare is a British-style pub located in the basement. There are three cask lines, at least one usually selling a beer from Greene King in the U.K. – the other two are rotating domestic casks. Sister bar to Jones Wood Foundry (q.v.), their house beer brewed by Wandering Star can be found on tap and sometimes on cask. The pub has Cask Marque quality accreditation. (6/2015)
