Shakespeare Inn  

This is an interesting pub with a lot of history. In the last century the pub was a known haunt for the 'Rotten Boroughs' where food and drink was free if you were prepared to vote for the person providing it. One of the landlady's was taken to Westminster to be questioned. She was threatened with Newgate Prison if she didn't tell 'all'!! So she did. The Shakespeare Inn is the oldest pub in Hedon and has had a license for over 300 traceable years. It was once called The Sir Charles Sanders after the First Lord of the Admiralty who was also an MP for Hedon. It is popular with locals and visitors alike. The food is excellent as well, it offers a very full menu to it's hungry customers including; steaks, home made pies & vegetarian meals. Fish dishes are also a speciality, and include really superb haddock and chips known locally as 'Whale on a Plate'? All are very good value for money with steaks costing and all other main meals a bargain. meals end at 7.30 and there are no evening meals Saturday and Sunday. There is an outside drinking area for the summer and a real fire for those cold winter nights. Beers on at the time were; Vaux Mild, Ward's Thorne BB and a guest beer called Gladstone from somewhere I cant remember now. The staff are friendly and helpful. You can even phone or fax your order through and it will be waiting for you when you arrive. It also has an excellent range of whiskies, brewery memorabilia. It even has old photos of Hedon for you to savour with your meal. Sadly there is no accommodation here.
