This pub is off the beaten track, but very near to Trafalgar Square. Feels like a 'proper' pub with good food & drink, few frills. Sherlock theme is 'fun' - looks older than it is.

Visited this pub on a busy Thursday evening in December, so didn't stay long and decided to drink outside. The pub itself is a traditional pub with character, good range of beers and although we didnt eat, the menu looked good too.

The Sherlock Holmes is a good old fashioned London pub. Its in a good location between Embankment and Trafalgar Sq. We booked a table in the upstairs restaurant - it was very busy so probably advisable to book most nights. The food was pub grub - sausages and mash, toad in the hole - quite tasty - nothing special, London... More

We arrived in London exhausted from an overnight flight. Our hotel steered us to this great local pub where the food was great and the service was friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed a relaxing meal in pleasant company.

A fun stop for Sherlock Holmes fans in the neighborhood of Trafalgar Square -- I chanced upon this pub while walking back to the hotel from a tour of Benjamin Franklin's home, then made reservations for later that evening. The decor features every actor to ever have portrayed Sherlock Holmes and upstairs there is a replica of Holmes' flat. The... More

Nice location near Trafalgar Square, good ambiance and vibe. Mediocre beer selection. I didn't eat here so I can't review the food. A solid, but not extraordinary, pub.

Our third visit to this pub for a meal and a pint. In the past we have been well satisfied with food, but this time the chips were virtually cold as were the mushy peas, although the fish was well cooked and lovely and white. Will have to see if we use it again though.
