Much better than you have any right to expect, next to the tourist hoardes or 221B.

Four real ales on. I went for an absolute superb Redemption Urban Dusk. Easily the best pint of the day and one to look out for again.

Very busy - efficient staff. Good atmosphere.

Nice gastropub with a good/interesting beer selection, both lagers and ales, and a relaxed atmosphere. Plenty of tourists naturally but they blend in fine. Piano in the corner than an old Cockney geezer comes in to play from time to time for half pints of bitter which I find nice and quaint.

Becomes more lively nearer closing time but never any trouble or anything. Would classify this as a pub for a dinner-date more than anything or somewhere for a few pints after the cricket etc.

This is a lovely pub, with so much potential, but the service is terrible. It can take 15 minutes to get a drink, even though it is regularly busy on a Wednesday and Thursday there is usually only 1 or 2 bartenders, who are polite but in some serious need of training.

I can concur that service seems to move at a snails pace whether it is busy or quiet. Can get horribly sweaty in the place as tables/chairs dominate the bar so it is a real push/shove sort of place to get from A (the bar) to B.

If you like leering at female drivers in their cars in the Baker Street traffic you'll enjoy a beer outside.

Whether Sherlock would have gone in here - 221B being virtually next door - I have my doubts!

Busy pub near Baker Street tube station. Large main bar with a smaller dining area to the left. Grubby gents' toilets down some dark stairs. Good selection of bottled beers and 4 ale taps with Cask Marque logos on them, although two were turned around. The Box Steam Brewery "Tunnel Vision" was fine at 3.60 although service at the bar was a bit slow at times.
