We had our wedding reception at The Dickens Inn and everything went wonderful! It's an amazing location - St Katharine docks are very beautiful, it's a walkable distance to The Tower Bridge, so you have lots of beautiful photo opportunities for your wedding shots. Our guests also really enjoyed the balcony in the Pickwick room - it was very nice to go and sit there, enjoying the view of the docks. Function Suite is very spacious, for the evening staff also reorganises the room, so you have space for the proper dance floor and partying. Very attentive and professional staff, special thanks go to Agata and Bogdan with whom we worked closely to organise our wedding. Agata was very helpful and responsive, and was always available to answer our questions. Bogdan was an event manager on the day, and also he and the team were in charge of putting up the decor. Room looked amazing with the decorations and lights! Everything went smoothly and we didn’t have any issues, all deliveries from external vendors were accepted by the staff, so we could enjoy our day. Thank you The Dickens Inn team for our wonderful wedding day!

The venue staff were excellent and very attentive all night and ensured the whole night ran smoothly. While liaising with the venue through Agata she was very accommodating and did her best to ensure all our wishes and needs were met.

Excellent communication, very helpful staff, beautiful venue. Staff was very responsive to our requests, even at last minute, and helped largely on the day of the event to ensure it was successful. Very positive experience. Highly recommend


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.

This hidden gem lies just minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the City of London with stunning views across the River Thames.
