The Dickens Bar and Bistro is a classic country pub within a four star country house hotel and it offers that feel of escaping all of the urban hubbub. The famous mural depicting the scene of locals within the bar enjoying the frivolity and camaraderie of any locals drinking hole.
The name has come from The Morritt Hotels link back through history with Charles Dickens. It is thought when writing his novel Nickolas Nickleby he stayed at The Morritt whilst gathering inspiration from the surroundings and the local boys school with the mural based on that era to really does tie the theme in. New murals were commissioned in the bistro to celebrate Dickens’ 200th birthday, back in 2012.
