|Huge riverside pub on 3 levels.|
Very much an after work place on a weekday, amazing selection of 10 different beers on tap, all from different UK breweries
Out of all of the levels the ground floor bar was the busiest with the restaurant on the floor above, I cannot comment on the food as I didn't see any being served.
A very nice large beer garden.
Decent pub but the beers are the real reason for a visit.

|The beer is great, cant be faulted. However, they clearly have a policy of ripping people off through VERY short pints. Happens every time I visit. I complain, but I bet the tourists don't.|

|Made my first visit here for donkey's years on Sunday afternoon, as it seemed the perfect place to stop off and enjoy the world going by on a hot sunny day. |
I don't recall it being a Nicholson's - clearly the multi-level designed and grotesque grey concrete facade suggests a 1970s pub/restaurant origin, and frankly I was much re-assured by the Nicholson's paraphernalia as it not only implies a bit more homeliness and character (even if it is faux) and a reliable food and drinks range.
I wasn't disappointed on any of these fronts. Let's get the negatives out of the way: the cask ale selection wasn't as broad as many of the chain's counterparts, but as I was on a Pimm's tip I didn't fret about that - as to quality I can only rely on others to comment but I imagine it is good. Secondly - yes the prices can be somewhat prohibitive as sadly one comes to expect from prime riverside London locations. But we didn't think a large pitcher of aforesaid concoction at £18 these days was too awful - I've known worse!
We eschewed the bottom bar's outside seating area as it is very shaded and buried at the bottom of Blackfriars Bridge - on a sunny day I'd recommend you head up to the top floor bar and try to secure seating on the terrace, which has commanding views up and down river. It is a glorious sun-trap so be mindful not to turn pink as you while away what will almost certainly be too long chatting, quaffing, viewing and sun-soaking. To our mutual amazement, as a fivesome we still managed to grab a table with no tussles. Perhaps the reviews on price here are putting punters off?!
I should make mention of service standards, given that they didn't always reach the expected level by previous reviewer's reckonings. Can't speak for the first 3 levels, but the 2 youngsters covering the top bar were perfectly pleasant - it took a while to mix up the jugs of Pimms but only because half the ingredients were downstairs so fair play.
Doggett's may not suit everybody's idea of a classic pub experience, nor may it suit if you're not able or willing to enjoy some al fresco socialising. But on the right day and with the right people, and in the right mood, it could just hit the rignt spot.

|Totally agree with previous reviewer, the drinks are very expensive (£6.10 for pint of ale and half a diet coke is ridiculous). Some of the bar staff aren't overly friendly but I must say that the bar man/waiter upstairs was complete opposite, he made time to talk to our party and bent over backwards to help. Food was nice, if slightly more expensive than a lot of pubs. |

|£4+ for a pint of Guinness? In a Nicholson's pub?|
I realise location counts and all that but this is a joke.
