On just the kind of gloomy winter evening that Melbourne is famous for, we descended to the cosy, basement level atmosphere of The Sherlock Holmes for a couple of drinks and a satisfying dinner. This authentic British style pub is all dark wood, small alcoves...More

The food here is old English and done quite well. The bar is quite snug and can get a bit noisy. The value for money is good but the staff seemed to be a bit casual.

A great little English pub on Collins St. A good selection of beers on tap, great atmosphere and really good service. Didn't try the food but it looked good.

Very cozy, comfortable and quiet enough to be able to have a conversation over dinner or lunch. Food is of a pretty good quality and a good range on the menus.

Must visit pub in Melbourne. Best pub food. Try a steak and guinness pie and vegetable with a draught beer. This place can get busy. Just love it!

Return visit to the Pub and was not disappointed. The Roast of the Day and a Pint of Guinness as a "late lunch" capped off a day of sight seeing at this comfortable and almost classic pub.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

You may need to book for a Saturday night. Not sure about the sport, part of the question, I don't think it is really the type of place you would want football types of people turning up😩
