    Fish and chips!! I substituted beans for peas, and a side of curry sauce! It tastes exactly as I remember from England! Well worth the trip, and defo worth the price.

    Lots of good memories here: 4:30am EPL games with my 10 year old daughter eating her English breakfast. Food is good but not excellent but the atmosphere is outstanding.

    If you are a soccer fan and want the British feel, this is the place for you. Service is great and comes with a British accent, how cool is that? Parking sucks though unless you valet for $7.

    Atmosphere - crowded to watch soccer. Trad Brit food. Not far from Washington Ave trolley so for those who want to drive park at a station and take the troller.

    Good atmosphere. Good fish and chips. Get the pork shank with buffalo sauce. Avoid the scotch eggs. They pre made and microwaved. Didn't even bother to finish.

    Great place to watch football. Cider on tap; good & spicy Bloody Mary's. Zoa: super nice, sweet & attentive waitress. Breakfast sandwich on a roll: good but very small.

    The banana blintz is to die for, and their scotch egg with chutney is spot on.

    The above review was intended for Princess Pub in little Italy. Shakespeare is the best british pub in SD hands down and is everything Princess is not.
