The Dickens Inn is a picturesque restyled and reconstructed 18th century pub and restaurant, providing an outstanding place to go and enjoy food and drink in the heart of St Katharine Docks in London. With gorgeous pizzas, speciality steaks, burgers and Sunday roasts as well as balcony dining, large beer garden and views of Tower Bridge and the Shard, we're popular with tourists and locals alike.
The Dickens Inn is the perfect venue for any private/ corporate event. Sitting above the majestic boats and yachts below create the picture perfect backdrop for a truly magical event. This hidden gem lies just minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the City of London with stunning views across the River Thames.
The function room is an ideal events space with an additional area for al fresco drinking. The room has been beautifully finished in a style that complements its historic setting, making it one of the best venues in London for any special events (large or small). The room has a self contained bar and can accommodate up to 150 guests for music and dancing until midnight.

    I have been here a couple of times, I love the location and the feeling of being out of the chaos despite being in London. The staff is warm and friendly. I popped in as a walk in on a Sunday and they gave me a table with a nice view. Great wine selection,the food is fine, maybe I would have appreciated more a less hard roast beef but it is very difficult for me to find it like I prefer.

    When we booked we asked to be sat next to a window with a view, when we arrived we were seated with the best view in the restaurant. We were welcomed by friendly staff. The food was amazing. All of us finished every scrap of food on our plates. Our server Moon was attentive and friendly. Would highly recommend coming here.

    Great gastropub located in the heart of St. Katherine's Dock. Visited here having booked and were given a great window seat overlooking the harbour. The front of house was friendly and helpful. Good menu choices, good sized portions and reasonable pricing. The only downfall for me, was the scaffolding on the outside and building signs on the way up to the top floor (although I do appreciate works do need to be carried out).

    After a long cold day of touring London on foot, this place was a welcome refuge for my tired and overly chilled family. Ducking into this place for food and warmth, we welcomed the amazingly relaxed atmosphere this restaurant provided. With three levels, the first being the bar and the next two being the dinning floors, this establishment offers a rich relaxing ambience and plenty of seating to enjoy it. The staff is very kind and helpful throughout the meal. The food was good but a little overpriced in my opinion. We ordered the scotch eggs (perfect breading but the eggs were too undercooked for my taste), two burgers (scrumptious), and two chicken schnitzels (breaded chicken with no gravy or sauce but not bad just bland). Don’t get me wrong, the food was good and we devoured it. However, I don’t believe it was 140 quid good, especially when we get cups of ketchup and not the bottle (small pet peeve of mine). Overall, it’s a beautiful and warm environment with good food that’s a little overpriced. Go and taste for yourself.
