Theft. Went to the Shaklewell Arms after a birthday meal. Left a bag containing gifts and bottles of Champagne with the security staff, who insisted it would be safe. On the return of the bag items where missing to the total of £60. Sadly the CCTV didn't cover this area. Not a great establishment.


Great venue/pub. But definitely not suited to the typical fuddy-duddy Time Out readers. (read below)


if i see this venue advertised on the ticket... i ain't going to the gig, bout sums up how much i like this place...


This place has some of the worst organisation I have ever seen: Despite buying a ticket & queuing for well over half an hour we were met with angry and clearly frustrated door staff. A man pushed in the que and started a fight with someone, they let him in. the staff were overworked and unhelpful: Even politely asking where the toilet was was met with rudeness. I would avoid this pub if you are looking for a safe and enjoyable evening out.
