The Shakespeare, Lower Temple Street - pub sign

Got an opportunity to get shots of The Shakespeare on Lower Temple Street, while no one was drinking outside.

 

It is a Mitchells & Butlers pub, and it is a Smoke-Free pub.

 

The building dates back to 1911.

 

Pub sign of The Shakespeare.

 

Lower Temple Street

 

On the west the Neo-Georgian Shakespeare pub by Arthur Edwards of 1911. The successor to the Pit Bar of the Theatre Royal, hence the name. Before the block was reconstructed in 1910-11, the theatre ran through to Lower Temple Street here.
