Hudson's Old English Restaurant - 239 Baker Street, London - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle 1st Class stamp

In the same Grade II listed building as The Sherlock Holmes Museum is this restaurant - Hudson's Old English Restaurant at 239 Baker Street.

 

It had a Sir Arthur Conan Doyle 1st class stamp in the window, as well as a book and Sherlock cuddly toys.

 

Looks more like an office than a restaurant.
