Shakespeare's Head, Brighton
The Shakespeare's Head is an honest and simple boozer on the corner of a back street, close to the restaurant heavy Preston Road area of Brighton. You know what kind of place it is when you are welcomed with scotch eggs and slices of pork pie on the bar to accompany your pint of ale. Split into two, the front bar is a comfortable carpeted area, while at the back is a pool table and a cosy nook to the side of the bar. Above the bar is festooned with cases of miniature bottles, which might prove useful if the beer ever runs out and you don't mind 25 year old liqueurs. Friendly services is accompanied by a couple of ales but our mid week visit found it rather quiet, with a scattering of older fellas in situ. Hopefully it picks up on the weekend; after all, there's nowt really wrong with the place.
