Good but not excellent restaurant at a nice place. However we feel it is far too expensive for the quality of food it serves. Service not particularly friendly and professional.

My friends and I were having a meal; we were throughly enjoying ourselves, the atmosphere was good, the food was delicious. However, I have never experienced such bad service and attitude from one of the waiters of the 4th floor restaurant. We arranged for my friends birthday cake to be stored in the fridge. When I asked him, and he... More

We had our wedding in the Dickens Inn and it was superb!! It was the ideal location with a beautiful function room, beautiful settings, options to customise your wedding including outoor space and a flower decorated balcony, disabled access, efficient, friendly and experienced staff and great food. Thank you to everyone there (Lec, Scott, etc.) who made our day so... More

I was on a day trip and came across this delightful pub. It looks so picturesque and it was a shame it was wet and miserable outside as im sure it would be beautiful to sit there and watch the world go by. It was busy in there but we were served quite quickly, suprisingly the drinks were not too... More

My company had organised a dinner in this tavern : even if we were an hour late (...) and arrived at almost 10 p.m., they were very kind. We ate at the 2nd floor, The Grill. Service was quick and some italian wine was available (a Montepulciano and a white wine from Puglia, I don't remember which one). After en... More

We sat outside in the sunshine, very good atmosphere, very good food at very reasonable prices considering its location. The service was was excellent and the staff were all very friendly. We stayed in the 'ground floor' part of the pub, but will try other parts when I return. very good place for families and easy to find.

Enjoyed a lovely Sunday afternoon lunch at the bistro. Food was excellent and very sizable. Good spot the enjoy an afternoon. Service was slightly on the slow side, the waitress did apologize, but he food made-up for it. Next time I would make a reservation. Recommended.

We visited. The Dickens with friends and as it was a mild evening decided to sit outside. The venue offers 3 eating areas; pub grub, grill and pizzeria. We opted for the grill and were not disappointed. I had gammon with egg and chips. A traditional dish but well executed and plentiful. Some chose chicken and mushroom pie and loved... More

Have seen this place before on visits to St Katherine's Dock but not eaten here until now. Went to the Pizzeria on the second floor. Surprised at how quiet it was as although past lunchtime, only just as probably about 2.30pm when we arrived. Sat outside which was nice but wish they'd lose just one table which would enable them...
