Dickens Inn

The Dickens Inn is situated on the doorstep of Teesside University. The Dickens Inn is the nerve centre of Teesside social life thriving seven days a week! Enjoy good music every night until midnight and later on a weekend, with a selection of resident DJ's delivering the latest and greatest chart music, as well as soul, alternative, pop, house and R'n'B. Dickens Inn also serves a great range of food and drinks at reasonable prices. Dickens 2 is a new style bar attached to the Dickens Inn for a contemporary chilled vibe.

The Dickens Inn serves mouthwatering classic English pub food, from All Day Breakfasts to our local trademark – the legendary Parmo! Food served until 4pm Monday – Saturday.

They offer a superb Coffee Shop on the side of the pub which is open from 8am till 5pm and sells a range of coffees, teas, muffins, cakes, scones and hot food all day long. On a weekend from 8pm the Coffee Shop conveniently changes into a lively Cocktail Bar.

Upstairs in The Dickens there is a superb function room aptly named The Gold Room which boasts a private bar, private outside terrace with seating area and heaters, DJ booth and stage. It's ideal for weddings, engagements, christenings, birthdays, fundraising events or any excuse for a party. The Gold Room can be catered and decorated by use for an extra cost so you can get on and enjoy your night. See: Gold Room
