Many thanks for your very kind remarks on Trip Advisor. Dickens for my wife and myself is a hobby and as such we have put a great deal of love into the venture. Dickens may be small but we have a big heart and love...More

Whilst this is a little bit like a 'gentlemans club', sadly the background music isn't in keeping. The seating is, as previously described by others, lovely comfortable club chairs with coffee tables (these however, could prove a challenge with some when eating). As there are...More

A great collection of Dickens memorabilia adorns the walls of this cosy lounge. A peaceful ambience and simple but suitable menu adds to the appeal of this establishment. A very pleasant experience.

A lovely place to visit with a comforting feel. However; very expensive for 2 pints which put us off. If the price was dramatically lowered, we would drink there everyday.More

I am sorry you thought our prices high, but for the ambience and comfort we endeavour to give all our customers we feel the price is right and less than some comparable place i.e. Pubs. The lagers we offer are all top end and not...More

An unprepossessing outside hides a little gem inside. Comfortable, clean, friendly. Charles Dickens memorabilia throughout and copies of the author's books to peruse whilst sharing coffee and snacks or wine and meals in this select little haven.
