Dirty Dick's Description

A city institution in the heart of Bishopsgate, Dirty Dick's was established in 1745 and is steeped in history; it is thought that its namesake was Dickens' inspiration for Miss Haversham in Great Expectations.

Set over three levels, this idiosyncratic, deeply traditional pub is crammed full of strange and wonderful artefacts, which will keep you engrossed for hours.

But let us distract you ........ beer lovers are rewarded with the full range of award winning Young's cask ales as well as Wells Bombardier and a selection of top quality lagers and speciality beers to complement our tempting

menu of traditional and satisfying fayre, while wine buffs cannot fail to be delighted by our diverse, extensive wine list.

Our champagne selection is certainly a level above the usual pub offering; Laurent Perrier is not exactly on tap, but this is as close as you will get outside of a champagne bar!

We offer a selection of traditional British dishes and Modern European twists and our famous fish and chips comes highly recommended; we're not just saying that!

Dirty Dick's has been a pub since at least 1804. The name refers to Nathaniel Bentley, who once lived on the premises and whose refusal to wash or clean up earned him his nickname.

The following customer reviews are not endorsed by Fluid London and are simply those of users who wish to publish their independent experiences of Dirty Dick's.

“This cosy pub opposite the Liverpool Street station is obviously over run with workers from the City of London who are waiting for their train home back to the Shires. It's completely made of wood and feels almost as though you're drinking a pint on the galleon of an old ship. Lots of nooks and crannies and even a Vault where I believe they have comedy once a week. Good Youngs ales on tap. A few TVs for sports fans.”
