We visited yesterday (the 13th of November) for both a private experience of the live game as well as the afternoon tea and mini mystery and we had an absolutely fantastic time! Starting with the live game, once we'd entered Doyle's Opticians and confirmed our booking we, as well as another party starting at the same time as us, were brought through to the Mind Palace before being brought back to Doyle's to begin the experience (loved the waiting room version of the sherlock theme that was playing in the background here!) where Stamford went over the initial rules of the 'routine examination'. I'm happy to note that while the website and emails asks to travel light as there is no left luggage facility, as of our visit they were providing storage chests for us to store our bags during the game! Before we knew it we all found ourselves in 221b where we had our 'identification photos' taken, which was a very fun moment. Hopefully to clear up any confusion for anyone else looking to book the private experience as we weren't fully clear on this ourselves, while we were together with another group during the initial introduction at Doyle's Opticians, the 'eye exam' and the visit to 221b, once the plot kicked in and the game was on, we were split into our individual groups and completed the rest of the experience privately, and there was ample social distancing during the two scenes where we were accompanied by the other group too. Now I won't spoil any of the game or it's plot, suffice to say that as fans of the show, we found that it was a great continuation from where the series left off. The attention to detail was fabulous both in the familiar and new rooms and seeing what the characters were up to after we last left them on the small screen was just as satisfying as interacting with them as players! And from a game perspective, this really is an excellently crafted escape room, the puzzles were varied and very engaging, and you could tell a lot of care went into making sure that there were as few dead ends as possible, both in how the game's puzzles were crafted as well as the great job the game masters were doing. As a team of two we definitely struggled with some of the later puzzles where more hands would have been, well, handy, but as a game originally intended for teams of 4 to 6, that was a small bump in an otherwise very smooth experience which, hands down, was the best escape room we've played to date! The Afternoon Tea and Mini Mystery certainly had a hard task following the excellent live game but without a doubt it was just as phenomenal! Once it was time, we were escorted through to the lavish library area where our host Stamford introduced himself and reintroduced us to Stamford who had served us our delicious cocktails at the Mind Palace after the game. I'd contacted the venue beforehand as requested to ask for one normal and one vegan cream tea, which were promptly served and featured a wonderful selection of savoury snacks such as finger sandwiches, rolls, wraps, quiche, ciabatta and a savoury muffin and a whole host of sweet treats, cupcakes, lemon meringue, carrot cake, a mousse, choux pastry, scones (as a Devonian and a vegan, your vegan cream for the scone was utterly divine and I wish I'd asked you what it was when I had the chance) and finally both had a 221b brownie. I can't complement the food enough, everything was truly delicious and excellently presented, and the tea was just as heavenly, we had the choice of traditional breakfast tea or earl grey and as we both had one of each, we can attest they were wonderfully brewed! Soon after our teas had been brought out, Stamford provided us with the Mini Mystery and again, no spoilers, but it was a very fun brain teaser. I'd say the hallmark of a successful puzzle is when we'd gotten so engaged we'd been distracted from enjoying the delicious food we'd yet to eat! Overall we had a truly fantastic time, every part of our visit was excellent and as someone who's been very tentative about stepping back into the world following the last few years, I can't recommend this place enough, the fantastic theming and immersiveness, the delicious food, tea and cocktails, and of course the exceptional staff, so I wanted to give a huge thanks to Stamford who checked us in at Doyle's and Stamford who walked us through the rules and our 'routine examination', Stamford who helped us with our 'identification photos' in 221b (we hope you get a chance to visit Brixham again soon!), Sherlock for perfectly timed advice getting us out of a scrape or two, Stamford who not only helped us with our photos and deerstalker hats but also went above and beyond to make the 10th birthday of a member of the other team we'd entered with even better, Stamford who mixed us our delicious cocktails and helped me check in for our afternoon teas and Stamford, our wonderful host for the afternoon tea and mini mystery. While, as you said yesterday, your names certainly make it easier, I hope my genuine thanks will be able to reach you all regardless and please know that you all truly made our day!

The main reason I traveled to London from France was to try the escape room, and I don't regret my trip ! Being myself a game master and a huge fan of Sherlock Holmes I spent the best of time there ! From the e-mail to the moment I left the the escape, everything was perfect ! The e-mail signed by Mycroft, the undercover of the mission, the presence of the actors on screens, the game play and the game mastering, the mind palace bar, everything is thought out down to the smallest detail ! We manage to succed the mission in time, and I have wonderful souvenirs for life ! Thank you to all the crew, I am part of the Network now !

From start to finish this was a great experience. It captures the spirit of the site and is exciting and has great puzzles, all with a good sense of humour. Even getting there in the first place is fun.

What a fantastic experience from start to finish. Staff made it absolutely brilliant. We did not make the last task but had so much fun. Amazing if you need a bit of fun in your life do take this live game on.
