There have been houses on this site since 1685, when French refugees who had fled the province of Picardy, due to the revocation of the Edict of Nantes when Louis XIV declared Protestantism illegal, built Picardy village.

Located close to the Conan Doyle is Picardy Place, where the pub’s namesake, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was born on 22 May 1859. A larger than life bronze statue of Conan Doyle’s greatest creation, Sherlock Holmes, stands watch over the area portrayed as if in meditation on the death of his author.

These days, the Conan Doyle is well known for its wide range of quality food and fine real ales, served up in relaxing, Victorian style surroundings.
