Stuck in London for a few hours near Charing Cross, so I gave this a try (I hadn't been here for a few years). Not bad, especially for the overpriced area, but still a Greene King fairly ordinary place. Decent food, though. My wife and I were the only Brits in the place, the rest being Americans. 5.5/10

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.
