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.

Marvelous Wedding Venue!
Such a lovely venue! Having had our wedding reception at The Dickens Inn, we can't imagine having done it anywhere else. We had a large wedding (93 people), about half of whom came from the United States and had never been to London before. With it's prime location at St. Katherine's Dock, our American guests got all the grandeur of a historic London waterfront venue! The price was very reasonable and the service exemplary. The space provided was well-sized, comfortable, and perfectly suited to what we needed. The venue also looked great, with it's exposed wooden beams, fairy lights, and wooden chairs (trust us, it is worth the minimal extra cost to have the white wooden chairs), we were able to have our warm and rustic autumn atmosphere despite the cold and rain outdoors The two members of the events team with whom we worked, Agata and Sam, were both marvelous. They were very responsive to our questions and needs, including a few transatlantic language mix-ups and a myriad of set-up questions! We were also very impressed with their chef, who was able to accommodate a last minute dietary request for one of the guests with only 48 hours notice! Every member of staff with whom we interacted was kind, courteous, and very professional. Do yourself a favor and don't give them a miss when you are looking at venues!

Amazing wedding venue!!
We had our wedding reception at the Dickens on 14 September this year and I cannot begin to thank the staff enough for making our day really special. From the initial enquiry right through to the day all the staff were amazing and did everything they could to make our day as special as it could be. Everything went perfectly, the set up was beautiful, food tasted amazing and the drinks were flowing! Thank you again to all of the staff at The Dickens (especially Sam!).

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!

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!

Fantastic wedding, highly recommend
We just wanted to write to say a massive thank you for making our wedding day the most magical day! We have always enjoyed visiting the pub and after getting engaged and looking at over 20venues we enquired at the dickens inn. Agata and her team were just incredible from the start to finish. Nothing was ever too much too ask for, and questions were always answered super fast. Our day was beyond amazing, and so many people said it was the best wedding they went to and how magical and iconic the venue / location was. We will never be able to thank you enough!
