The Shakey

is historically known to be the central hub of Totterdown. We are a pub for the local community, and aim to provide a warm welcome to all. We serve a range of local real ales, ciders and lagers and serve hot food daily, including our delicious roast dinners every Sunday.

We are dog friendly, have two lovely beer gardens perfect for when the sun's out, and a log burner inside for winter.

We are situated just south of the River Avon, close to Bath road and Wells road, and just a few minutes walk from Temple Meads railway station.

Art gallery

We are huge fans of the arts, and host the Kane art gallery throughout The Shakespeare. We are also proud to be a hub for the "Totterdown front room arts trail"



The Shakespeare is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy some of the very best in local music Bristol has to offer.  

For many years and counting, The Shakey plays an integral part of the Totterdown street festival.

If you are a musician and would like to perform at our venue please don't hesitate to get in touch.

*We are also always more than happy to host a party for any occasion; please get in touch for more info
