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.
