Stay here on business trips and enjoy the atmosphere and a cool pint but no one comes for a refill or food order for too long when busy.

Timeless British pub food done consistently well and homely. Legendary lamb roganjosh and burgers. Consider the brunch buffet to taste the best that they do.

Stopped for a drink and we needed to rest our feet. It's a hotel bar. They were out of the cheap tiger beer special so I had a beer from the UK. It was alright. If you're staying at the hotel I'm sure it's fine,...More

Loved Dickens bar, great meeting point when travelling as a group or meeting up with others. We had lunch here a couple of times that was good, tasty, and served quickly. Carol was great and looked after us so well! We will stay here again!
