Any pub called the Shakespeare's Head in an area as touristy as Carnaby Street would just have to be an olde worlde building with leaded glass windows and true to form, this one is. It hasn't changed at all in recent years. The only critical recent addition being the chairs and tables on the pavement outside, for the smokers and just in case the weather turns nice (it does occasionally). The pub does get chock full on weekends and in the evenings, with a mixture of local workers and tourists. There is an upstairs restaurant serving pub food, and it seems to do it well enough as it's always busy. It's not a bad place and well placed for Carnaby Street - it can be a great place to meet when it's not full, but that doesn't seem to happen very often.

Bought two drinks, One vodka / redbull and a beer. £16, Challenged the con man behind the bar who then told me "well this is London!" I therefore asked for the bill and found that he had charged me for a double vodka and only given a single shot. Not only that, he was not asked for a double. Be careful in this place.

Although we know better, we ended up here for dinner - big mistake. Food was the worst I've ever had in London!! Ordered a meat pie that was inedible. Service was virtually non existent. This pub may be fine for a drink, but for food, don't bother!
