Famous for being Durham’s most haunted pub, The Shakespeare is set in a 12th century building with a Bar on the ground floor & Y'Bard Spirits Bar on the second floor.
Recently refurbished, the interior comprises a small bar and a larger back lounge. The pub was originally a haunt for 19th-century theatre actors and patrons, hence the name.
Y'Bard spirits bar was formerly the Managers office of the historic 12th century building recently refurbished & turned in to an exclusive Spirits Bar.
