Now renamed The Shakespeare

This review is from my visit to Canterbury on the last weekend in January 2015

After dinner it was time for a few drinks so we headed to this attractive looking Shepherd & Neame pub which was very busy by 8.30pm.

On the bar were 4 hand pumps serving 3 Sheps ales but I went for a bottle of their India Pale Ale @ 6.1%.

Even though it was packed the service was very quick.

Having read the pubs website it seems it only opened in 2013 hence the trendy feel to the interior.

This is a large pub with plenty of seating and standing areas as well as a large central courtyard for the better weather and of course smokers.

Decent beer, quick service and a nice feel to it…all in all a good pub for a few beers.

Central Canterbury pub, young clientel and great bar maids. jugs of oranjeboom for £10 plus rather more pleasing jugs on show behind bar.

I agree about the real ales. There could be more. Only a couple of Shepherd Neame ales on when I visited recently.
More cosy than many Irish bars I've visited, (I'm not a fan of them outside of Ireland). Casey's is centrally placed in the city and just round the corner from the cathedral. Because of it's position it seems to be busy throughout the day. Live bands in the evenings can really fill the place out.

Caught somewhere between 'genuine Irish pub' and 'O'Neill's with a different typically Irish name'. Feels both plasticky and homely in equal measure. I could be wrong (I am a real pessimist when it comes to 'Irish' pubs) and judging this place harshly. Whatever it is, it is quite nice. Beer selection is okay but could do with more real ales (where couldn't?) and it does have a good atmosphere with low lighting and old, creaky, wooden decoration and booth-style seats. Live music is usually good too.

I go in time to time to read a paper on my own and relax with a pint of Murphy's.
