The Volunteer


Standing proudly on Baker Street, just a few doors down from the famous address of the one and only Sherlock Holmes, The Volunteer is a great spot for a quick drink after a hard day in the office or catching up with friends over dinner.

In keeping with the area’s Victorian architecture, you’ll be greeted by period features and modern touches when you step inside. With a classic British pub food menu, and a premium drinks offering including craft ales, a good selection of wines and artisan spirits, it’s safe to say this London pub is nothing short of... elementary. 

If you’re a budding ghost hunter, keep a look out for the smartly dressed chap who’s said to haunt the building.
