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

We ate in the dining room upstairs a few years ago and could not wait to return. We were disappointed on this visit. Don't know if there are new owners or what, but the menu had changed and the food was not nearly as good. We had Cottage Pie on our visit the first time and it is not longer... More

We found this pub.restaraunt by accident walking from Trafalgar Square to The Thames River. Walked by a little before lunch. No one outside, thought it was closed but we went in and very, very glad we did. Very small but adorable English pub. Got a table upstairs where the little replica of Holmes' office is located. Sat right in front... More

We stumbled upon this place during a protest in central London. Being a fan I had to at least pop in for a pint! Sadly they were out of their Sherlock Holmes ale so we had Stella. The barman was hilarious. We decided to pop upstairs to the restaurant to eat and although it was packed we managed to squeeze... More
