    Brilliant friendly helpful staff, but I was not impressed with the lunch. The beef was over cooked and rubbery the chefs obviously do not know how to cook a roast potato as they were very poor, the Bar did not stock Canadian club my favourite drink or Grappa to have with my after dinner espresso the espresso was excellent.I love this pubs location ad atmosphere and used it on and off for years I will continue to use it but never have the traditional Sunday lunch again.

    My first choice was a cottage pie which was not available although on the menu. We went for fish and chips instead. It was a basic meal with no greens. The food was reasonable and likewise with the service. It’s worth a visit for the ambience in the bar - timbered, low ceiling.

    We were quite disappointed with our experience of the grill at the dickens inn. It took about 20 mins to get service for drinks, and then 40 mins to get our food. When the food came out, there were parts missing from my dish and my friend’s steak had not been cooked how she ordered. The food was alright but nothing special and very over priced for what you get. The service was very poor as well. Once we had finished, it took about 20 mins for somebody to come and clear our plates and they only did half the table. It took another 10 mins for them to come back and clean the rest. We asked for the bill which came very quickly, but then had to wait another 20 mins for the waitress to come back with the card machine. The worst thing of all was that the restaurant was not even that busy.

    I think the staff rely on the building being pretty to satisfy customers because the food and service were not good.

    Staff were friendly, lovely location. However, food was average and way over priced for what it was. They need to either improve the quality of food to match it's price or lower there prices.
