Nice enough place, but whole experience spoilt by jobs worth security telling us we couldn’t sit out the front of the pub and had to go back in the garden where there were no spare seats. So ended going inside on a hot day. Wouldn’t have minded but he enjoyed it too much complete pea brain.

Ok, the place has plenty of atmosphere, the food looked ok, lots of alcohol choice, mind you my brother from Newcastle would walk out shaking his Geordie head at the prices. The biggest kick in the whatsit was the lack of toilets. The place was rammed full of customers happy to pay the aforementioned prices. A visit to the loo meant a climb to the second floor, as downstairs were out of order. Two urinals and one to sit on, not good Dickens Inn. My female partner later took the same trip. She returned 30 minutes later having waited in a queue for the loo. Only one loo for the ladies as the downstairs and second upstairs were out of order. How disrespectful towards your customers can you get? While happy to take our money you appear to be unable to call out an emergency plumber for your cross legged customers. Shameful!

We ordered some appetizers to start including olives and seasonal crisps with some drinks at 18:00. The waiter came back to say they were out of crisps. We said fine although it was early in the evening and thought it strange they would run out of crisps. One in the party ordered an elderflower cocktail. The waiter said they were out of that drink. She then ordered a Cosmopolitan. He came back to say they ere out of that also. I said a Cosmopolitan is lime, triple sec, vodka and cranberry. How could you run out of those basic ingredients. Needless to say that was three strikes and we didn’t want to risk Russian Roulette on the entrees.
