The Sherlock Holmes Pub


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.

"Try Their Own Sherlock Holmes Ale"

Charming pub with a great brew of their own, the Sherlock Holmes Ale. It was packed with people, they were spilling out onto the street, as I became accustomed to seeing in London.

Walked by this place just casually exploring the city, so glad I did! I wasn't expecting to go back later that night for dinner!
