I love this place. The facade is really beautiful, the interior is spacious and there is some extra exterior area as well. Overall, a great venue! I'd recommend it to anyone.

Nice location for this pub/restaurant in a 18th century building in a restored dock and shipping area. The food was good enough to bring us back a couple of days later for another meal and the service was prompt and attentive. Go there, you'll like...

Cosy, characteristic pub in St Katherine's dock area, in the least crowded part of the city. Ideal for a quiet Saturday evening.

An exceptional pub down by St Katherine's. Exceptional service in all parts of the business, the Grill restaurant is perfect for a celebratory meal out, and they are an amazing wedding reception venue!

Our wedding at the Dickens Inn was everything I wanted and more. As we were both born and raised in London it made perfect sense to get married here. We chose the Dickens Inn as St Katherine’s Dock is one of our favourite London spots. The docks and...
