“Oldy worldly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Lovely pub with good wine, didn't try the beer but it looked a good choice. Walk upstairs and see a brilliant recreation of Sherlock Holmes living room in the dining area of the pub.

“a little over-rated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

it took two attempts to find the place as we had noticed it inpassing on other trips. The outside of the pub looked quaint and authentic and we were impressed. Once inside however, we felt a little let down. There was nothing special about the bar area and it was quite small. There was a restaurant upstairs but we didnt go up there so we cannot comment on that.

“Great drinking price in a busy location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

I expected to pay top dollar for beer but was pleasantly surprised with the prices and the barmen even let me try before I decided on which ale to try. Great atmosphere so close to the heart of the tourist area

“Interesting place but not worthy to wait in line”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

Loved the setting, good fish and chip. Beer was terrible and wait to get in and at the table were too long. Staff is nice but looked overwhelmed.
