Sherlock Holmes was Written Here
Here Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote the Sherlock Holmes novels
Originally known as the Northumberland Hotel, it was here that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote many of the famous Sherlock Holmes novels. Indeed, part of the pub has been kitted out as Holmes and Watson's sitting room, complete with Victorian memorabilia relating to their (fictitious) lives. Moreover, one of Conan Doyle's most famous works 'The Hound of the Baskervilles' actually sees Henry Baskerville meeting Sherlock Holmes in this pub!
A.C. Doyle The Eye Specialist
The creator of Sherlock Holmes once plied his trade here.
