    I went there for lunch with 3 friends. Prosecco was so nice we had 2 bottles. 2 of us ordered the Prawn Cocktail which had loads of prawns but sauce had no flavour and was watery. We all ordered steak for our main 3 out of 4 of those were cooked to out liking. Service was a little slow and think they could do with younger staff as one of them really didn’t seem all that bothered about keeping diners happy. Ladies loos had much to be desired so much so they had to close them so you had to go all the way down to pub level and another lot of stairs to use those one. Toilets could really do with a make over. We were how ever very happy with the total bill.

    Dining at the restaurant "The Dickens Inn" was a great experience: the location on the docks, the atmosphere and the lights, the friendliness and presence of the waiters, as well as their advice on children's dinner. We felt very satisfied as well as very well treated. The restaurant is beautiful and already, from the outside, you feel in a special place. It is a must when we go to London. The children had a classic "fish and chips" dinner, which they loved: crispy on the outside, and tasty and soft inside. And my wife and me, slaves of the scale (weighing machine), were careless and went straight for the most succulent dishes: sitcoin steaks well done !!!

    I really enjoyed the character and location of the restaurants. The food was not something I would come back for, but I would come back to enjoy a drink on the lovely deck. Also the ground floor toilets could use some attention.

    I enjoyed the atmosphere inside and how nice it looks on the outside! Tried the Cottage Pie and loved it! Had a nice talk with our waiter over us living in California USA. It was a great experience! Highly recommend.
