Dickens Inn, Tower Hill
On paper the Dickens Inn still should be great: historic dockside location, good choice of real ales, plenty of space for outdoor drinking. But it hasn't changed in the last few years. In the flesh, this pub manages to do most things disappointingly. From the obligatory receipt with every single purchase (no doubt aimed at the majority of suits on lunch expenses that make up much of the trade), to the mandatory 'would you like any crisps or nuts with that?' - as if you couldn't come up with the answer to that teaser on your own - to the musak piped from every corner. Nearby, the Town of Ramsgate offers good food, friendly service, and a Thames-side terrace, so unless you are desperate to sit on St Katharine's dock, we'd say, go the extra mile and enjoy your pint there and leave this place to the tourists.
