Located on London Street, this quaint British pub, named after Victorian novelist Charles Dickens, is a friendly, relaxed place to unwind. Dubbed “London’s longest pub”, this traditional tavern with unfussy decor and British pub classics, cask ales and delicious wines, is a favourite among locals.
Start with a Baked Camembert or juicy Taylor Walker Chicken Wings. For your main course Kay and Co staff recommend the pub’s signature dish - hand-battered fish and chips, made from the finest quality cod fillets and served with pickled onions.
Another classic is their Ploughman’s Board, a piping hot Cheddar Cheese pastry pie. Try this with a glass of 1730 special pale ale. Drop in on a Sunday for brunch or a late lunch to enjoy a hearty roast with all the trimmings - home baked Yorkshire pudding, goose fat roast potatoes and seasonal greens. For dessert, the scrumptious Millionaire’s Cheesecake or Kentish Bramley Apple Pie hit the sweet spot.
This is a child-friendly pub proving popular with families in the Paddington neighbourhood. For sports fans The Dickens Tavern also has a Sky Sports television. So, if you plan to spend a Saturday night watching the football, cricket or the Olympics while enjoying vittles and ale, this unpretentious W2 pub is worth considering.

Charles Dickens had the good taste to live in Marylebone when he bought a house on Devonshire Terrace in 1839. He wrote ‘A house of great promise (and great premium), ‘undeniable’ situation and excessive splendour, is in view’. Less than five minutes away is the Kay & Co Hyde Park office and we have a large selection of luxury properties for sale in Paddington, that deserve similar eulogies.
