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.

We were in a rush also and they initially quoted 15-20 for the rib to properly go through the smoker. And food was on our table in 10 minutes. Under promise... more
