Went there recently and can honestly say that as a pub, the Charles Dickens is one of Worthing's best - one of the few places with a decent ambiance and atmosphere without Sky TV everywhere.
Good service from friendly bar staff and great selection of ales and spirits. Lots of nooks and crannies and a really nice warm vibe to it and a well maintained garden/patio area which is really nice in summer.
Food is outstanding - certainly the best I have come across in any pub and many restaurants not just in Worthing. Reasonably priced and portions are more than generous. Most of it is cooked fresh on the premises and sourced locally. Have eaten there and never had a bad experience. Took my partner and our respective elderly mothers there for a pre-Xmas meal which was superb.
