Assistant Manager - Shakespeare's

Shakespeare's is a busy city centre Belhaven Urban pub. Situated on Lothian Road, five minutes walking distance from both Princes Street and the Grassmarket. Shakespeares is located on a large number of bus routes, including many night bus services, and is five minutes walk from the tram stop on Shandwick Place. Both Haymarket and Waverley Train stations are a 15 minute walk away.

Located on Lothian Road, Shakespeares underwent a refurbishment two years ago and is now a modern city centre pub serving drinks, pub meals and showing live sport. Being next to the Usher Hall and other venues, Shakespeares often has a high volume of customers including locals, tourists, music and sports fans. There is one bar and no separate function room, but Shakespeares often hosts large bookings such as tourist groups and parties. There is an external beer garden which is often busy during the spring and summer months. Current areas of focus include building the live entertainment on offer, including music and pub quizzes, as well as continuing the pub's reputation as a good location to watch live sports.
