Need quite a lot of money to last a night here. Wine was over £5 for a glass. Nice to sit outside on a sunny day but can get very busy

On a business trip to London and had a pizza here tonight. Pizza was very good and freshly made and tasty so no complaints. Service wasn't the best with no offer of black pepper or parmesan for my mac and cheese starter. Very busy and staff not really caring about the finer parts if service. Shame as otherwise very good.

We popped along to The Dickens Inn on a trip to St Katharine Docks, which is a lovely setting just by the side of Tower Bridge. It's a little tucked away and that actually helps keep some of the masses that throng to the Tower of London from finding it... Long may that continue... The Dickens Inn is a very... More

We got fooled by the look of the place, it looks really amazing and beautiful but when we decided to have food it changed our view. The food wasn't worth the money, we spend over 60 GBP for 2 main courses, 1 cheesecake, 1 beer and 2 long drinks. The service was nothing special, just the basic, serve n go..... More

Well, I returned there again having Great Expectations for food :-) My apologies to compare it with Mr. Dickens' novel "Great Expectations" but I just couldn't help it. Normally, I come back for food but this place has it incorporated both so to speak in terms of delicious meals and amazing views. On my way down there I was thinking... More

Don't order fish and chips but the large pizza are tasty. The place is beautiful. The waitress was distant.

Had lunch here Sunday and all eight of us had the worst food we'd ever had. Apart from really small portions it was all overcooked and warmed up and tasteless. Great place to have a drink but avoid the food like the plague.

Thank vickypatchwork
