    Lovely location with a varied menu . Being senior citizens the stairs were a challenge but that would not stop me from visiting again.

    I booked a table for x2 at The Dickens Inn for an early dinner. Great location overlooking St. Katherine's Dock marina area. Venue had some old fashioned charm with low beams inside. Great menu choice and attentive service; food a bit mediocre. Greatly let down by the severely neglected basic toilets - worst then your memories of school!!! Really put me off and dented my experience of this place.

    Fairly quiet when we first arrived (was mid week) so waiter flexible on where we chose to sit. Food and ambience fine for three of us to catch up with a visiting Canadian friend.
