Perfect wedding location!
We were lucky enough to be able to book this wonderful wedding venue on a Bank Holiday Saturday in August for our wedding, and we are so glad we did! We had often visited the pub for dinner in The Grill, or a delicious pizza, or just a drink, as it is such a beautiful location. We had family coming over from the States so we were looking for somewhere very centrally located, but somewhere with character and charm. The Dickens Inn ticked every box; the wedding venue is stunning, with its beautiful wooden beams and huge windows, and you are so close to Tower Bridge and the bustle of central London, but the cobbled streets around the quay could be a million miles away. Agata and her team were outstanding from the very first email exchange, nothing was too much trouble for them and we were in fairly regular contact for the year before our wedding, no question was too small and every detail was thought about. Any issues that arose closer to the wedding day were quickly and efficiently solved, and on the day we really felt that we could let go and enjoy ourselves, as Agata was there to make sure everything went to plan! We had the most memorable and perfect day, food was delicious and drinks plentiful, we were looked after so well and made to feel so special, and we can't thank Agata and The Dickens Inn enough for their personal, kind and efficient service. Would wholeheartedly recommend!

A day to remember
We can't say enough good things about the Dickens Inn as a wedding venue! Throughout the entire process the staff were extremely professional to work with - leading up to & on our wedding day they made sure every detail was covered. We would 100% recommend having your wedding here if you are looking for something in central London, with great food & stress free for the bride and groom. Our guests & us had an amazing time & it was truly one of the best days of our lives. Thank you to the team at the Dickens Inn"

Absolutely amazing wedding - thank you so much!
We got married at the Dickens Inn about a month ago, and it was absolutely incredible. Our wedding coordinator Agata was so friendly, and helpful, and Bogdan, the event coordinator on the day was also amazing! Everyone was saying how the venue looked amazing, the staff were so kind and attentive to guests, and everyone loved the food, both the canapes and the mains. The price was absolutely fantastic for the quality of service we got - from the complimentary menu tasting to the wine tasting, designing beautiful table stationery, honestly, we cannot have picked a better location for our wedding! Absolutely stunning location near Tower Bridge, and also the views over the marina were so beautiful, as well as the quirky and character filled nature of The Dickens Inn itself! Cannot recommend this place enough.

Best wedding party venue ever!
We had our wedding at the Dickens Inn back in Summer 2019. Everything about the experience from initial meeting to our wedding day was dealt with professionally, promptly and without any extra stress for us. Agata and her team were on hand to make sure everything ran smoothly - liaising with our photographers, DJ and providing exacting food for our guests. All our 100 guests commented on how amazing the venue was. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you so much!
