Painted black with etched glass windows and colourful hanging baskets, this traditional corner pub is chock-full of Holmes memorabilia, including photographs of Conan Doyle, mounted pages from manuscripts, and artefacts and pieces recording the adventures of the Master Detective. There’s even a replica of Holmes’ and Watson’s sitting room and study. This split-level establishment has a bar on the ground floor and on the first floor an intimate covered roof garden and the restaurant. There’s Sherlock Holmes Ale to drink, hot and cold bar food plus a menu offering Holmesian food choices like Rupert Everett's smoked salmon, Mrs Hudson's home-made steak and ale pie, Mary Sunderland's Cumberland sausages, and (non-Holmesian) vanilla and mascarpone cheesecake for afters.
