The Shakespeare, Middlesbrough


The Shakespeare is a public house on Linthorpe Road in Middlesbrough, built in the mid 19th century. It has a distinctive 1911 frontage by Kitching and Lee of Middlesbrough[1] (who also did the frontage for the close by Masham Hotel). One of the pub’s former landlords was Robert Watson Boyd, who was famous as the champion sculler of England in the 1870s. The Shakespeare operated as a pub for 150 years, but closed in the late 1990s. The building hosted an amusement arcade for many years before a period of disuse.[2] In 2018 there are plans to reopen as a pub.[3] The Shakespeare is a Grade II Listed building.
