The Shakespeare's Head is a Brighton institution! Pick and mix sausages a mash options with insanely good gravy to go with. All in a lovely cosy space near seven dials. Often bring friends in when they are visiting as it's bloody ace.

Ordered the battered cod with triple cooked chips which was overall a disappointment. Chips were barely cooked once let alone thrice. Batter was oily and tasteless (apart from the grease). Fish itself was slimy. Peas decent. Didn't like the tartare sauce as it was flavourless...More

Been coming to the Shakespeare's Head for about three years fairly regularly for sunday roasts, sometimes just me and my partner but normally in large groups. Visited today and the roast was not up to the usually very high standard it has been. I would...More
