Shakespeares Head is a small pub that can seat 50 people. With fair weather there is outside seating as well. The building was constructed in 1735 and owned by Thomas & John Shakespeare, who were distant relatives of the poet. The pub sign is a reproduction of Martin Droeshouts' portrait of Shakespeare. On the first floor corner a Shakespeare's life size bust is located with one hand missing; a result of a WWII bomb that exploded nearby.
