We went to the The Sherlock Homes English Pub because a friend of ours said it was the dodgiest little place to find women of the evening. We were not looking for women of the evening, but his stories were too funny to not check out. Instead we found a cool quiet, dark little oasis away from the hubbaloo of... More

More English than many pubs in England. Does a great Steak and Kidney pie, serves Fosters Lager and other local and international beers. Cricket on the TV! Live bands on some nights. Helpful, friendly smiley staff. Wish it was my local.......

Really nice pub atmosphere with friendly staff and customers when I visited as a solo traveler. Good house band also. Just bear in mind that smoking is allowed in the bar, quite unusual if you are used to UK and most of Europe.

Usually pretty lively in the evenings - live music - a word of warning tho' - if you are really against cigarettes they do allow smoking in the Bar!

Bar staff were friendly and helpful, however the prices were average to above average, and there was a live music act, with only the 2 of us in the bar, unnecessarily loud keyboard versions of "The Final Countdown" were played...

After eating at the Sherlock a dozen times, I finally tried the Camel Burger and would enjoy it again. The Arabian Courtyard Hotel remains a great place to enjoy Dubai from and popping downstairs to the Sherlock is a great treat as the staff is always friendly, courteous and helpful. Yes, you can enjoy all sorts of UK tastings but... More

Great place to relax with a beer, after been out in Dubai's heat. Staff very friendly, prices reasonable. Would be nice if smoking was not allowed, but seemed most of the smokers sat at the bar, so this didn't effect us to much.

Service was excellent, never expected to be eating Cottage Pie and Lancashire Hot Pot in Dubai. All of the staff went out of their way to help.

The place had a good ambiance with the only drawback being that people can still smoke inside. Other than that quite nice.
