From the Beerintheevening website user reviews for The Shakespeare pub, Victoria:

[…] People may look at it like just another rough-ish pub by a station (a hub pub). Take your time and look closer and you will be pleasantly surprised, what you will find, if you just try, is a pub where the lonely find friendship, the sad solace, the confused answers, the junkys drugs. Where the rich and poor rub shoulders and share a drink after waiting an age to get them, where no one cares about your colour or creed, all are equal. At worst people will say its a ‘Social experiment gone hideously wrong’. But I personally think it is the closest thing on earth to ‘Utopia’.
