Met here for a pre-dinner drink and really fancied the hot Pimms on offer at the bar which all our party wanted to warm a chilly evening. It had sold out by 6pm on a Saturday so had to settle for something from their very good beer selection which was fine although not cheap even by London standards.

Reasonably priced restaurant among a number of pricey restaurants around St Katherine's Dock. On three levels each with it's own cuisine. First floor is Italian which I visited for a quick pizza which was excellent.

At the Dickens inn, I had a Bacon and Blue burger. The blue Stilton made it a very tasty meal. Decently priced, visited with colleagues.

This is a substantial yet attractive building in a great location. The menu is typical pub fare, it does what it says on the tin but it won't exactly get you salivating. I had fish and chips, the fish was ok but the chips were cheap mass produced crap and were tasteless. My biggest complaint - in trying to be... More
