Pizzeria – The Dickens Inn, City of London
“You went to that tourist trap? The food is so terrible. The service is even worse!” *record scratch* *freeze frame* Yup, that’s me. You’re probably wondering how I ended up in this situation. I’m Sam, a food blogger, new to London. I don’t know places. We thought the three storey Dickens Inn in St. Katherine’s Dock would be a cosy stop for a quick bite. The stop was not cosy and the bite was not quick. With only 2/3 other tables there was no excuse for the slow kitchen, nor the rude service from who we later found was the “team leader”. Eep. So much attitude when we were seated, an eye roll when we asked for water, and repeated thumping down of dishes on the table. Most of us had the £15 combo, mine with mac and cheese starter, meat feast pizza, and apple pie. Bland, sloppy and unremarkable, in that order. Of course we did have the nerve to refuse the discretionary service fee after such an ill experience. Earlier in the day we stepped back in time at the Tower of London and I would have loved to step back in time to before we went here.
