I used to go to the Dickens often when I worked downtown and loved it for all the right reasons: great casual atmosphere, great staff and great food. After a long absence from my downtown haunt, I found myself there recently and was delighted to see that not much has changed. I had the lamb burger - delicious! - and... More

My husband and I travel up here a lot and this restaurant is a regular spot for us. There is a super great server here...she is a delight, humorous and efficient. The food is always good. I love their fish and chips and the bonus is super great coleslaw!

Staff and regular customers are very welcoming. I settled in to the great atmosphere very quickly and was made to feel at ease immediately. Some of the friendliest people I have had the pleasure to meet. The selection of food and beverages was more than satisfactory for a British style pub/Restaurant. I was informed that all food on the menu... More

Visited this Pub while on vacation. Not from the Woodstock area and choose this establishment based on the reviews. It is a nicely decorated bar, friendly servers, very crowded and extremely busy. We ordered two traditional pub meals and both dishes were very disappointing. We had the Cottage Pie and Shepherds Pie and both had more mashed potatoes than meat.... More
