Friday night with 5 friends. Meals were fine restaurant not too busy but the cold staff wasn’t expected. Not even a smile among them. What a shame. Felt like the staff needed training in customer service. A smile cost nothing but reflects the establishment!

Have visited The Dial for a delicious breakfast before and our second visit was even better. Food was excellent and a lovely, relaxing atmosphere. Will definitely go back again (the lunch and evening food has always been excellent on previous visits too!).

Have been many times. Food is usually very good. Atmosphere usually great, particularly at busy times. Service can be patchy. Last visit was poor, which is a shame - just down to one person's abrupt personality. Will go back. Preferred previous styling of restaurant!

Sorry I've only just seen this. For vegan you had to ask for a separate menu, had about 3 of each, and good mix of stuff. I think there was a couple of vegetarian things on the main menu too. Really is a nice option. Hope... More
