I've eaten here many times but unlikely to visit again, food ok but they now add on 12% service charge even when there are only 2 diners. I decide to try the rib eye steak not impressed and the chips portion was small. Then decided...More

We had a proper full english breakfast. Not too many guests when we visited - it was quite early, and you could still smell the party from last night (unfortunately not in a good way). The food was fine, though.

I first visited the Dickens inn over 30 years ago and it has hardly changed except the prices .over £7 for a small wine. And the staff were surly. I think it was better before with friendlier staff.

The menu is limited and we felt expensive, especially with 12% service charge. It’s basically average pub food with steaks and pizzas. I’d have to give the service very good as there was only one waiter on the middle floor and it was like a...More
