We dropped into the Dickens Inn grill restaurant on spec and we're pleasently surprised to get a table. The service was efficient and friendly, the food was basic but of reasonable quality. Good atmosphere in a building with great character. Would definitely recommend.

As the title says, the location is second to none, and the pub is beautiful but having to use the facilities ruins everything, I don't want to stand in a puddle in a cubicle with no lock and no toilet paper available! Please please please fix this!

A first timer to St Katherine's Dock and decided to try The Dicken's Inn for a family 'get together' meal. This venue was a recommendation, by several friends, and have to say it didn't disappoint. We ate in the Grill (upstairs) and while this is stairs only access, which meant carrying a buggy, it was worthwhile. Being December there was... More

We love the location and had always wanted to visit the Dickens. We wanted a table for lunch and waited to be seated. We were met by a lady who was clearly annoyed that we hadn't booked a table even though it wasn't busy. She then walked off not telling us to follow so were left feeling pretty unwanted. We... More

We booked for 13:30 and got there early which was no problem. Staff greeted us and we were seated in the grill within moments. Plenty of staff but ordering took ages. When the food arrived there was about a five minute gap between the first and second plate arriving and then two minutes to the final two plates. This was... More

Met here for a pre-dinner drink and really fancied the hot Pimms on offer at the bar which all our party wanted to warm a chilly evening. It had sold out by 6pm on a Saturday so had to settle for something from their very good beer selection which was fine although not cheap even by London standards.

Reasonably priced restaurant among a number of pricey restaurants around St Katherine's Dock. On three levels each with it's own cuisine. First floor is Italian which I visited for a quick pizza which was excellent.
