Quite unbelievably rude staff. We are a polite and happy bunch, but were made to feel like we were intruding and left feeling very unhappy having paid for the experience. The food was excellent and top marks to the kitchen, but when I pay to eat in a restaurant I expect a degree of effort from service staff and floor... More

Oddly celebrated my parents 25th wedding anniversary about 25 years ago, cue several changes of ownership and a lick of paint but it saw me returning to a very old haunt of mine from years ago. Despite their ownership of the venue being of more recent times, I was aware of the pub having transferred into a Thorley Tavern. Not... More

When asked for a table the surly moody waitress just shouted us down: "You should have waited by the door!". She approached another annoyed looking lady and they deliberated whether to sit us down or not as if we weren't there. Charming people's skills. As it was a busy sunny Sunday afternoon and we haven't booked we decided to stay... More

Been hear several times and it's been good. Style over substance tonight. Prawn cocktail served in a 1/2pint jug !!! Impossible to eat and very over priced for what you get. Main meals very good but couldn't get over the poxy starter.

Ate here on a glorious Saturday evening. Booked a table for 6pm so the restaurant was not too busy at this time. Had a table overlooking the harbour and the beach which was very atmospheric. Food is traditional fare and portions are more than adequate. Would highly recomment

We visited for lunch with friends recently. We had booked in advance and were delighted with our reserved table that offered a lovely sea view. The fish finger sandwiches were served in doorstep sized slices of fresh bread with tasty tartare sauce on the side and a salad garnish. The portion sizes were large and the food was delicious. My...

We've had many special family dos at the Dickens and never been disappointed. The portion sizes are terrific, menu selection nice and varied with wonderful specials on offer. We've even asked for vegan options and been pleasantly surprised and the options given by the chefs. Nothing is too much trouble! Christmas dinner was lovely with a proper vegetarian menu available... More
