I'm a big Sherlock fan so we stopped in for dinner at this Sherlock Holmes-themed pub. The service was a bit slow, but the food was decent and we ended up sitting at a table next to a couple who lived only a couple hours from us back home which was cool. Loved the decorations and theme of the place... More

I went with a group of around 15 friends for lunch on a Saturday. We had obviously booked as we were such a large group. We skipped starters and had mains. I had the roast dinner. The portion size wasn't great but it was really tasty. The tradition at the Sherlock Holmes is to have their wonderful filled Yorkshire Puddings... More

Looking for a good pub close to Charing Cross? Sherlock Holmes offers good pub food, in a fun and social atmosphere. To compliment the good tasting food, there is also lots of Sherlock Holmes memorabilia around the pub. The staff were also very friendly and courteous. Highly recommended for good tasting food in a fun-filled atmosphere, while the staff ensure... More

10 of us went here for a Saturday evening meal earlier this month. We chose it as we were going on the Ghost Bus tour and this venue is opposite the bus stop for the Ghost Bus. The food was good traditional pub grub, which was tasty and served up very quickly after our order was taken. The staff were... More

We had lunch at the Sherlock Holmes pub on the first floor. Very good food and beer, nice room and friendly and efficient service. We tried the fish and chips and the burger - both dishes very tasty and good.

This is a great one to visit if you're a die hard Sherlock Holmes fan. Simply because it's what this particular pub's theme is based around.It's set slightly back on Northumberland Place in between Trafalgar Square and the Embankment. Although I don't go to this place as much as I used to. It still retains a good atmosphere especially around... More

My wife and I stopped here for a couple of drinks on a visit to London recently and had a great time. The atmosphere was really relaxed and chilled with friendly staff and great tasting cider. We only had a snack to eat but we'll deferentially go back and sample the food as what was being served looked and smelt... More

The Yorkshire pudding was quite scrumptious and had bangers and mash with a really good red onion sauce. I loved all the Holmes regalia there! They had the Persian slipper by the fireplace, the correspondence transfixed with a jackknife in the center of the mantelpiece, Holmes’s deerstalker hat, Watson’s bowler hat, coat, and stethoscope, the dancing men sign, the magnifying...

We looked for this pub because we had found it on the internet among the “must see” pubs in London. It is near Charing Cross Tube station, easy to find if coming from Trafalgar Square. It’s the most typical British pub: there’s lots of people outside, enjoying a beer, decorated and furnished with lots of Sherlock Holmes’ memorabilia. On the... More
