About Us

The world famous Dickens – probably the best known and best loved bar on Teesside, with a tradition of providing the ultimate atmosphere for both students and locals alike. Situated in the centre of University of Teesside campus and a stones throw from Middlesbrough town centre, the Dickens is a ‘must-visit’ bar for all. We open every day and night, with a mouthwatering food menu, regular drinks promotions, all major televised sport plus special events, theme nights and the area’s best DJ talent.

Our commitment to excellence has resulted in us being awarded Best Bar alongside Best Overall Bar at the prestigious Best Bar None Awards Middlesbrough, plus we are proud to be one of a select few venues awarded the 5 Star Food Hygiene Award. Famed for our well-established nights, legendary beer garden (and Bank Holidays!) and electric atmosphere – we’ve been open since 1993 and still as popular as ever!
