Loved Sherlock' s coffee house, so authentic of the period. Really cozy atmosphere, lovely and very attentive staff. A really good varied menu ( heart warming home baking). For a quick bite in the afternoon its a definite must.

The title says it all - forget Costa - this is a real coffee shop with home made cakes and scones and pleasant and efficient staff to boot. About half the price as Costa but twice as good - what are you waiting for!

Passed many times but did not realise more tables than can be seen from the entrance hence always seemed full. Had sandwiches and cake as they did not do an afternoon tea, all very tasty and well presented.The old world decor is delightful and gives a lovely atmosphere to sit and relax while enjoying tea. Cakes are fantastic and wonderful... More

The service was very abrupt and it took a long time to arrive. The place was nice but in need of a good clean. All in all did not enjoy our visit .

Like many people we wandered into Sherlocks because it looked intriguing. The Victorian decor is nicely done and it is a nice place to relax in however it's not just a pretty face the cakes are wonderful, the only problem we had was making our choice as everything we have tried here has been as good as it looks

Personal service, loads of character and freshly baked scones to die for. If you like shabby chic then look no further.

Stopped for lunch here, but was not expecting to enjoy myself so much! As a Sherlock fan, I was ecstatic to find a tea room based on Sherlock, and the food was just as good! The service was excellent and the staff were very friendly. Will definitely be going back when in the area.

From the outside this cafe looks very interesting including the scrumptious cakes in the window. Once inside it did not disappoint. We were seated in an alcove which was very private with a victorian feel. Straightaway you feel at home and relaxed. There is piano music quietly playing in the background. We ordered 2 cakes and 2 coffees. The coffee... More
