If you are a fan of the quirky Sherlock Holmes, you will love this equally quirky Sherlock Holmes Pub. They also serve really good fish and chips.

This pub is always busy, due to its proximity to Trafalgar Square. It tends to be a bit grimy and the tables are rarely dry, being covered with a film of stale beer; the same goes for the bar. All that having been said, the...More
