About this space

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.

Presentation

Not many appropriate options to choose from on menu. Hot meals not hot enough on many of the tables.

Agata was extremely efficient and her professionalism and enthusiasm made planning our reception much easier. The Service we received from the Dickens Inn has been super, great value and that location is just fantastic. The Function Suite is a lovely space and our reception was well managed. The food is of great quality and the chef was able to accommodate a couple of last minute allergy requirements.

One thing really: The disabled bathroom, whilst easily accessible by lift, was not in the best shape which is not down to Agata or the staff managing our event. When we arrived there was no toilet tissue in there and it did feel a little neglected as a space. Everything else was lovely and they have recently refurbished the bathrooms on the Function Suite Floor so hopefully these will follow?
