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.

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
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.
