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.

I can only write about the drinks and the atmosphere, as we didn't try any of the food. We stopped in while waiting on the Ghost Bus Tour (don't waste your money on THAT!) to have a couple of drinks. The place was packed, and is definitely very touristy. Anyone who's a fan of Sherlock Holmes will enjoy the place though, as there are lots of kitschy things on the walls and overall the...more

Bread was rough and the ham was on par with what you would pick up from your grocery store. My travel partner said the burger was too dry as well.

A very charming "typical" London pub that's a must for any visitor with even a vague admiration for Sir Doyle's immortal detective.

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. 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
