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!
