Lovely restaurant with friendly staff. Unfortunately we did not have the best time, it took a while for us to get our order taken and we were only asked and served one drink for the whole time we were there. We ordered the small plates which sounded nice however when we received the food it wasn’t good, very stodgy and oily and most pretty flavourless, the pork belly was probably the worst one. I felt very sick during the meal and haven’t had much of an appetite all day, it all keeps repeating on me. My boyfriend was physically sick for a while when we got home. Very disappointing experience as we were really looking forward to a great meal and for £60 it wasn’t worth it, we were never asked how the meal was as the staff could probably guess with the amount we had left and not eaten. We are not the type to complain and feel awful doing so but this is the first meal anywhere which both of us didn’t really want to pay for.

It was a busy Monday night and I felt for the staff in some ways, myself and partner where seated near a big party and my partner was bumped into several times by the waitress as she tried to serve the table, once maybe twice you can accepted but times three and four she should have thought to go the long way round - we asked to move away so we could eat our meal without him being pushed into every second minute! Next thing we both ordered the lamb with dauphinois - one under cooked, one cremated! Sides - honey roast carrots, more like honey drowned carrots, more honey than carrots! Seasonal Steamed veg at £2.95 consisted of one piece of cauliflower, a spoonful of peas and some non honey drowned carrots, and microwaved not steamed - first and last ever experience of The Dial!

Food is always exceptional and the quality and range of drinks available is 2nd to none. Probably the best place to eat in the local area. Myself and my partner were celebrating our 10 year anniversary and the Dial didn’t disappoint.

Another great evening. What I like about the Dial is the consistency. Great food and excellent service from a long standing team of professionals. The best restaurant by far in this area.

The only thing that let down our experience is unfortunately out of your control. It was so noisy the their we were having to shout at each other across the table to have a conversation probably because it was just 1 big room. Other than that we really enjoyed our meal but wanted to leave straight away after we had finished to give our ears a rest.

The food was delicious, as always I thought the wines were a little pricey I was impressed with how well the allergy of one of my party was dealt with Timings between courses was perfect

Very limited choice of non alcoholic beer (1!) Food was good and wide choice at all price points. The house white was cheap tasting - if you say its house wine then its your recommendation and should be something you are proud to serve. Service was good and staff checked that everything was OK

Took a long time to order because the electronic hand held device had not been updated with the new menu and the waitress was unfamiliar with the new menu so eventually resorted to pen and paper. Very attentive waiting staff though. Generous portion of sides. Everything was very nicely presented and tasty.

3 of us had different main courses all were excellent. My steak was the best I've had for ages. Summer Pudding was superb. Only 4 stars for atmosphere because of the echos.
