We have visited the Dickens before and had lovely meals, this time however we were unlucky.We had two evening and two lunch times were the food was good.On the Saturday evening four of us went. Two of the meals were inedible whether because of the butcher or the chef we wont know as the chef would not speak to us.They did not take any money for it but it did spoil our evening.We will have to think twice before we go again

We started visiting the Dickens a year ago and it was fantastic value and lovely food, unfortunately this has changed over the last few months and the standard has gone down and as such we have not been going back.

Have visited this pub many times over the last couple of years, I understand what people say about the manager I've had a run in with him over how to make a cocktail for my wife. He is aggressive and I was informed if I didn't like it he could bar me, which is a shame as it is a lovely pub. I just don't think he has people skills. I agree with other comments it is a good pub loads of places to hide away and have a chill out evening. Have never tried the food so no comment, crisps and nuts taste good. They also have a bar billards table which is nice to see. Would recommend
