I have had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know Mark Honey, owner of William Shakespeare's Pub and Restaurant. Mark is a chap from the U. K. married to a lovely Beihai beauty and they operate a successful but friendly place to "hang out" as we say in the USA. The fare ranges from Chinese favorites to German Sausages Steaks and BBQ on the patio to Fish N Chips and much more to list. Pizza is unique healthy and good for the diet. Beer rules supreme! Specially prepared deserts from Tom are to die for! Cheesecake and Black Forest Cake Rule! Many foreigners such as myself are seen in the restaurant day and night. Don't miss spending numerous times at this restaurant. You will want to return again and again. My favorite place in Beihai! It will be yours too!

Been there a few times and you have to watch what you order.
Steaks can be done right, but the sauce differs in quality depending
who is cooking at the moment.
I have had good luck with their Shepherd pie, which was a huge serving
and quite good. Almost delicious Their meat pies are decent also.
Moussaka is worth ordering.
Do not expect gourmet and you might just enjoy going to William Shakespeare's!

WE ate here a few times, the floor staff are first class, helpful and did there best with limited English. Reasonable menu but the food varies dramatically, sometimes the food is over salted, sometimes over peppered, one dish had over 40 chillis in it, I think 15 would have been sufficient as after that number then the taste of all other food is destroyed, lots going on including a singer who probably should get another job as his playing went off key a few times

Best cheesecake in Beihai, Canadian Head Chef Tom was wonderful and Mark and his wife treated us like family. Also had some Dark German Draft Beer that was extremely tasty. Highly recommend William Shakespheres for a Western Style break from all the Chinese Food places :)

My husband and I were in Beihai for our anniversary and decided to try out William Shakespeare's. The decor was highly unique--Medieval Times has come to China. The English owner was nice and extremely friendly, but the food did not meet our expectations. The steak was of dubious quality. The burger was large but instead of the typical condiments was topped with a sweet fruit jam, which ruined it. The best thing about the place was the great German beer on tap. Perhaps William Shakespeare's is worth a drink at the bar, but I would not recommend making a meal or special occasion of it.
