Timothy taylor boltmaker on. Not seen it before. Ptobably got the name wrong. Great location.... Not as much tat as I was expecting.

Friendly enough barman on when I visited. Themed pub for Sherlock Holmes fans. GK beers and a "Sherlock Holmes Ale" which in fact is actually Morland Original! Worth a quick pit-stop but wouldn't be a regular haunt of mine. 5/10

Just above average id give this place. It was harmless enough on my visit, I wouldn't say I had a bad visit.
It is not only called the Sherlock Holmes, but is a monument to the character created by Sir Arthur Conan Coyle. It has a downstairs bar area and an upstairs restaurant. I went for a meal, so never experienced downstairs. It wasn't too packed, and to service wasn't too bad throughout - the American guy hosting tried to engage the clientelle, so wheather this is something appealing or you'd rather be lest alone to dine is to personnel taste. He managed to loose his stick that you sign onto the till with, and was scrabling around looking for it before service continued, however its called being human. Admittedly, he remembered we'd ordered drinks prior to this and still delivered.
There is also a room upstairs decorated to a Sherlock Holmes scene with memorabelia. Its worth a look through the upstairs window. There's also a small warmed up enclosed balcony bit next to this.
All this being said though, the pub looks and feels standard London fare. Pint range on tap is limited upstairs, and food and drink is still typically pricey.
Id still return, however, it wouldn't be the best pub ever to return too.

Good location and good choice of real ales. Contrary to previous reports, I found the bar staff friendly and helpful, and the service was good.

What's good about this pub? Location, three minutes walk from Charing Cross Station, slightly tucked away. A choice of Ales - Old Speckled Hen, Abbott Ale, Green King IPA and Sherlock Holmes Ale
What's bad about this pub? Attitude of the bar staff. Service is slow. Beer is pricey. Abbott Ale 3.55, San Miguel 3.95 and Peroni 4.35
Comments: Despite attracting a number of tourists with the 'Sherlock Holmes' name, the pub is actually very ordinary and has nothing special to offer. The bar staff are happy to serve you and take your money up to last orders and then get very rude when you don't drink up and leave within ten minutes. There is no need for such rudeness. I wouldn't recommend spending your money there.
