Very slow staff

For such a popular and busy pub, they really need to sort out their staffing, not enough on to cover the bar area and very slow.

I joined several colleagues for after work drinks. What a great place for just that! Although it was a bit crowded, we were able to find a table in a corner by the bar where we could try the various offerings on tap. We were private enough that we could hear each other speak, but not so private that we... More

Just had drinks. Really nice hotel with window boxes outside planted with flowers. Sat outside overlooking St Katherine's Dock, so really nice setting to look at the boats or just people watch.

Stayed in London for the weekend with my boyfriend. He had booked us to go in the grill restaurant. We had a very pleasant stay. Waitress was very friendly, food was very good. Would 100% recommend it.

The food here was really nice. it was the second time i went. Went to the pizzeria. I had the garlic bread starter which was nice. My friend had the chicken wings. They said it lacked flavour. I had the canelloni for main and that was really tasty. It would be nice if it came with a salad instead of... More

Maybe it was the unseasonal sunshine on a Saturday afternoon in March but this place just seemed overwhelmed by the number of customers. We might have stayed to eat but we had to queue three deep at the bar just to get a drink. Tables were piled with empty glasses and the bar staff looked very stretched. Crazy thing was... More

I asked for Pub recommendation at reception in the Tower hotel. Katherines Quay is charming and the Dickens Inn looks impressive. About 12.30 Friday lunchtime. There were a few people sat outside, and only a few inside. I sat my wife down at table 13 (an omen?) Made our menu choices! There were about 4 groups being served by 4... More
