We had an early supper at the Pub and found it a real tavern. We had fish and chips and the food was acceptable, nothing special. The place was not so full and we could choose our pace to sit. I agree that they could not be known for their cuisine, but the atmosphere was joyous and I think quite... More

I live in Oxford and I go to this pub often. I would recommed this place for drinks only and it is a beautiful pub, especially in summer. I would not say they are famous for their cuisine, there are better places in london where to have supper.

I get the impression that St Katherine dock is a trendy location near Tower bridge and the Tower in the summer butn December for a staff Christmas lunch it is very shabby chic. We dined in the upper floor which is furnished with tables and chairs that seem to have been sourced from second hand shops. Quite trendy if you... More

We booked our team Christmas lunch at this venue. We had to pay a deposit months in advance and then the whole amount (including service charge) about three weeks beforehand. The food choices were minimal. On arrival we found we were on the second floor and there was no lift. One member of our party suffers from severe mobility issues... More

We booked this venue for our staff Christmas party. We were all pleased we chose the Dickens Inn. The setting from outside and the view from inside is amazing. The food was good and reasonably priced. We had plenty of room (not all squashed together like some places). The service was friendly and efficient. There was a good atmosphere and... More

I like this place and location and I used to go there quite often... But unfortunately in the last two times I spent the night vomiting after a dinner there ... It cannot be a coincidence!!!

We went last night as a family of four to celebrate my wife's birthday. As someone has already said the staff did their job but were not particularly warm and welcoming. In fact they didn't do a great job e.g. they didn't clear the small table of starters before trying to cram the main course plates in front of us.... More

Ate here yesterday after a visit to the Tower. The Inn is situated in a great location to the Tower, and from the outside looks fab and outstanding - giving the impression of an outstanding experience to be had inside. However, once inside although it was nicely decorated for Xmas and had an old world charm about the place, it... More

Maybe I was expecting too much. The exterior of the restaurant is lovely. The location is perfect. The interior is welcoming. The staff were friendly. But the menu in the Grill is limited. The food came in large quantities but the quality was only average, and the drinks were very expensive. It is definitely worth a visit for the location,... More

Went to a business lunch there. With a corporate budget you would have expected more. Food was just ok not bad just ok. Beer was expensive even if I wasn't paying! Loos were not clean. If I was wanting to recommend somewhere I wouldn't recommend this place. Don't get me wrong I wouldn't say it's bad just it's not great.... More
