    Venue Specialist Tip No. 1: Classic English Pubs Have a Welcoming Atmosphere

    The Dickens Inn in St Katharine Docks is a spectacular 18th-century pub that looks as though it’s from the pages of a storybook. Featuring hanging flower baskets, sturdy beams, and wooden panelled interiors, it’s a cosy setting where everyone will feel at home. Upstairs on the first floor, there’s a barn style function room that you can hire privately. You can BYO decorations and corkage options are also available.
