The Sherlock Holmes pub is a traditional English pub serving pints and pub food.
As well as a bar and restaurant, the pub has a secret - a complete recreation of Holmes and Watson's study and sitting room with a large collection of objects and photographs related to the characters from the books and adaptations.
The collection was put together for the Festival of Great Britain and moved to this permanent home at the Sherlock Holmes pub in 1957.

Ambience: Excellent, captured the feeling of an old London pub inter-mixed with the Sherlock Holmes experience.
Service: we noticed a distinct lack of knowledge of the items on the menu. One of the...more
A very charming "typical" London pub that's a must for any visitor with even a vague admiration for Sir Doyle's immortal detective. Lots of kitsch interior details (like the head of the Hound) as well as gorgeous etched windows and decorated exterior. The upstairs is apparently made out just like Holmes' living room but I didn't check it out as we were in a bit of a hurry. Also had super...more

I had no desire to spend hours in line just to see some haphazard displays with no reference to the author himself (at least, that's the...more
