I’ve found the new managers to be welcoming and feel they’re making great changes in the pub. However they need to keep a watchful eye on their clientele as my partner and I were targeted this evening by some very drunk loud homophobic men who...More

The pub isn't located in the hearth of the city, which means it's not too crowded and is a good place to visit if you want to chill out with a glass of beer in a peaceful atmosphere. The only thing that I didn't like...More

Average pub, lacklustre food, seems to cater for a rowdy element who were .using the outside seating when we visited on a Friday evening. Must be a nightmare for their neighbours.

Kind of run down old world pub. Rather large place. Used to have a nice outside garden but not so nice anymore. Under revolving new management who are trying to make changes but needs major refurbishment and reinvestment. Food also served.

Nice real ale but very short measured twice in succession. When I ask for a pint I expect to get what I am paying for. Otherwise not s bad venue.

Visited after quite a long gap. Food was good but decor was sadly seedy. Maybe a few buckets of paint and a cleaning would help. The surroundings detract from the excellent food and friendly service.

As locals, we are very happy that the Charles Dickens is serving food again. And what great food - hearty, good quality Italian cooking. Melanzane Parmigiana and Pork Bellies were excellent, also the vegetables. An added bonus is that we could dine with our dog...More
