The Dicken's Inn is a reconstructed 18th century building with a lot of character situated right in the middle of St Katharine Docks, with a great view looking out at the moored yachts. The pub can be immensely popular, especially in the warmer months, but if you're lucky enough to get a table it's a great location for an evening... More

Dinner at the dickens inn for 2 was lovely. It was busy but as we had booked it wasn't a problem. The restaurant was very hot though. Nice food and very friendly staff. The inn has 2 restaurants and It's a shame you can't order from the pizzeria and the grill menu in both places but hey ho. Drinks are... More

My wife and I were buying tickets for the Tower of London, and asked the staff there of a nearby place to eat dinner. He recommended the Dickens Inn. He gave us directions on how to walk there. It took us about 10 minutes to walk along the river and under Tower Bridge. It was near sunset and we for... More

On this occasion I took two friends to finish off a lovely day pre -Christmas , we had spent the day visiting sights and eating and drinking. I can't believe how... More

We went to London for three nights in March 2015. We discovered St. Katharine's Docks the first night and we are so glad we did. It was a 10-minute walk from our hotel so we ate in this area all three nights. We even ate at Dickens Inn two of the three nights. We were travelling with two 8-year olds.... More

Tucked away at the back of the quay it might take a while to find, but explore and you'll find it. The pub is lively, and you can eat in here, but there is an Italian restaurant on the first floor and on the second, a grill restaurant. We opted for the grill and the food was great and delivered...

Used to work just down the road and used to visit quite often. Was nearby with colleagues for a night out so paid a visit. Lovely and cosy and great for a drink. Always a favourite as lots of space.

Until we saw the £50 price tag!! What a bloody rip off, didn't stay and the prices and def there to rip of the... More
