The food menu selection is quite extensive, with some interesting beers on offer as well . I ordered the steak and mushroom pie with fries instead of the vegetables, but it came out with the veggies. The waitress fixed the omission by bringing a big bowl of yummy fries, and told me to have my greens as well! Very professional,... More

Where to hide when it is raining in Melbourne? Try the Sherlock Holmes. Cosy. Good vibe. Good beer and good food.

A friend introduced me to Sherlock's a few years back. Every time I'm back in Melbourne I make an effort to come here. It's interiors decorated with a tutor style theme, which is very fitting for the pub. The staff are lovely and helpful. Now to the menu. You can't go to Sherlocks's without having one of their amazing parmigiana's.... More

Have been to this hotel a few times on previous Melbourne visits but have never eaten here. A friendly environment with a good selection of beers and wines and an excellent menu. We had swordfish and it was excellent A very enjoyable experience and as others have stated a little bit of England in Melbourne.

Close to where I was staying so it was convenient. Not expecting too much, this place was a nice surprise. Huge selection of beers and very nice menu with a good deal of variety. My meal was very tasty, the surroundings pleasant and the staff were genuinely friendly. Very nice.

A small basement pub that has some warm atmosphere, a great selection of beers, and an attitude that says you are part of the family. When I visited they called many of the customers by name and gave a CBD pub a homely feel. Several people had meals when we were leaving and they looked and smelt wonderful. I am... More

We chanced upon this place a few years ago while visiting Melbourne and we return on every visit. There is no imposing street frontage, just a little doorway with an old looking sign above - we were curious what was down those stairs and just had to go and investigate. What a great pub hidden downstairs and such a great... More

A friendly pub with good atmosphere located in the CBD of Melbourne on Collins street. Look out for he narrow doorway entrance to the steps and underground location. Food and beer were both good and after several visits over the past few years seems very consistent. Definitely worth a try if you are looking for that "pie & pint" evening.

I was walking along Collins Street, solo, as I began to get hungry and craving a good pint of beer. I saw Sherlock Holmes and decided to give them a try! They are located below ground floor, so it's much cooler down there on hot days! The first thing I noticed was how neat the place looked inside. Very inviting... More
