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.

OK Sherlock fans - although this place is pretty touristy, you must go. Try to go in the afternoon where you have it to yourself, nice and quiet and time to look at all the memorabilia.
Formerly the Northumberland Hotel, it is now conveniently known as the Sherlock Holmes Pub. There's some pretty neat memorabilia about, and I loved the homage to Benedict Cumberbatch's BBC Sherlock on the...more
It kind of saddens me that the museum at 221B Baker Street has received such bad reviews from fans of Doyle's stories. I had really been looking forward to spending some time there, but after reading several not-so-glowing reviews, I revised our plans.

Once inside though, the service is egregiously slow and unfriendly, and the beer (including the namesakes) are just okay.
I won't be back. It's not...more
Came here for a Sunday lunch with a mate at some point in the winter. We were in the area by chance, but decided to give it a go as it looked quirky.
Downstairs is like a normal pub, but upstairs where the restaurant is, is hilarious! It is full to the brim with Sherlock Holmes memorabilia and nick-knacks, with a full-on room set up to look like Sherlock's office. It's absolutely fascinating...more

My friend and I walked in and the downstairs bar was packed! THATS OKAY! They have seating upstairs people! We almost left...more
