Bucking Fastard left this review about Sherlock Holmes

Street corner Sherlock Holmes themed pub with modern etched glass depicting the stories heroes.Internally quite small and L shapes with original external doors for the Saloon and Bar but just the apex door open due to Covid regulations.Lots of pavement seats which seemed a better option than the rather busy interior,tourists will want to tick off this place,although it is a little faux.No T&T if outside with table service.

Greene King owned meaning Abbott and their IPA,a house bitter (no doubt GK as well) and something called Dr Watson's Porter which I was told by the server was brewed by Portobello.It was shockingly bad,very watery and impossible to finish my half despite being clean and non vinegar.I should have guessed this might be the case in a tourist trap,beware.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Sherlock Holmes

Not a bad two-room Greene King pub, provided that you don't get there at the same time as a coach-load of Conan Doyle enthusiasts... Typical 'olde London pub' interior; supplemented, of course, by loads of Sherlock Holmes memorabilia. Beer-wise, there is a bank of six handpumps in each bar; and, whilst many of the clips are duplicates, there is usually a reasonable selection of well-kept beers. These were the Sherlock House Ale and Watson Golden Ale, Greene King IPA, London Glory and Abbot plus the seasonal Belhaven Scrum Down (£4.30) on my latest visit.

Currently shut for redecoration and 'internal space alteration' according to the GK planning application to Westminster Council plastered in the windows. Presumably so that they can pack more tourists in.
