Good Value

Great place to eat and drink, great atmosphere and only a few minutes from the The Tower Hotel, handy when it's really raining heavy

I visit every time I'm in town. The barkeeps are usually friendly and the food is good enough (not spectacular, but good). The views of the docks and tower are great. It's usually a bit crowded inside but a seat on one of the several balconies is pretty relaxing with a pint.

We headed to St Katherine Docks to watch the launch of the Clipper Round the World race. We reserved a table for 11:30hrs. We arrived at 11:10hrs and were asked to go to bar first as the restaurant didn't open until 11:30hrs. There were about six people waiting to get served by a girl named Marzena who was clearly stressing... More

Came in for a late lunch with some friends. The waitress asked if we wanted to be inside or out and we asked for inside and she looked genuinely annoyed about this... There was one other table in the grill and we still waited a good 20 min to be served I had to wave someone over in the end.... More

Great location for drinks with friends, we recently tried the pizza upstairs too and it was pretty good, service in the restaurant upstairs was very slow though, we waited ages before the waiter came over to take our orders even though they were not busy, they also never returned to take our drinks orders even when our glasses were completely...

Always buzzing. Great atmosphere. Bar on ground floor. Pizzeria on first floor and Grill on second floor. Spacious and never feels overcrowded. Staff attentive if a bit distant. Alfresco dining on the terrace surrounded by flowers with fabulous views of the docks. The Fishermans Pie is delicious. For the Sunday Roast go a bit earlier in the afternoon. When we... More

I have known the Dickens Inn for many years, in fact, virtually ever since it fist opened. Sadly, as the most recent visit showed, it's on a downhill slide. The bar used to have character, sawdust on the floor, proper beer. Now, it's mostly fancy foreign beers, clean floors (well, at least no more sawdust), and the visitors to match.... More

Called in here on Saturday for drinks & food. It was very busy but had plenty of available tables. Food was good & service pleasant. Really nice setting at the dock area
