The Sherlock HolmesThirsty Sherlock Holmes fans look no further than this homage to the great detective himself and to original Victorian pubs. While you indulge in a soothing pint of Sherlock Holmes bitter, black and white films featuring the fictional sleuth blare out from an old television in the corner. Boasting a fantastic, original Victorian facade, the pubs interior is less impressive in terms of original Victoriana, however upstairs you'll find the museum's focal point - a perfect reproduction of an original Victorian sitting room complete with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle portrait above the fireplace. When it comes to Conan Doyle-related memorabilia this place is hard to beat. Down in the bar, a stuffed bloodhound's head glowers from above, while a wax replica of Sherlock Holmes contemplative visage complete with a gun wound (acquired in The Empty House) provides a more reassuring presence. With an unrivalled collection of artefacts, a cosy bar area and old-fashioned upstairs restaurant this unusual alternative to your ordinary London bar offers an interesting evening option for full-on fans and curious sightseers alike.

Best for:
Deerstalkers and detectives, bloodhounds and beer, Victoriana, black and white films and museum pieces.
