This centralised pub/restaurant has an inside and outside dining area. It is a little basic and dark inside but the food is good and efficiently served. The menu is varied and ranges from snacks to full meals. We have enjoyed the wedges, pasta and steak sandwiches here. All of which were tasty, hot and good portion size.

Do not, under any circumstances, expect the staff to come to you. You must track someone down and declare your presence. They will promise to bring you a menu. Don't hold your breath. After waiting an age for two cups of coffee we departed. Did I mention coffee?? the WORST coffee I have EVER tasted anywhere in the world -... More

Took 1t minutes for our drinks to arrive and they were wrong. Order fish and chips and they were so oily that my salad was swimming in oil. The nachos with cheese and bacon just had a massive melted clump of cheese. The chicken burger was under cooked.

The exterior of the Dickens Inn looks like the lovely old pubs in the UK and Ireland and that alone should be enough to lure dinners in. They are open early for breakfast and stay open late for evening dinners/drinkers. The Inn is situated in the mall area of downtown Whangarei. The staff were pleasant and proficient and although the... More

Big diverse menu and friendly staff. Went twice and the food is not outstanding but good comfort food for the price, and ideal if you're really hungry due to the portion size. Nice atmosphere.

I went to this place with my family for lunch. It was a Sunday afternoon and not very busy, we found that the service was slow and I had to ask what happened to the beer that I had ordered 20 minutes earlier. The food was nice but the size of the meals was tiny compared to the price. The... More
