THE DIAL HOUSE TEAM
Hannah & Andrew
Hannah and Andrew took ownership of The Dial House in May 2018. The pair both grew up in Norfolk, spent their twenties in London, then moved back home with their young children and dreams in tow. They couldn’t wait to get back to Norfolk to give their children the kind of childhood they both enjoyed. They found an old Farmhouse in Reepham to call home and made plans to create something together.
The pair launched their first venture, Farmyard Restaurant, in Norwich in January 2017. Here they quickly gained a reputation for great cooking, service and wine in a relaxed, contemporary space. When the chance to take on the Dial House presented itself, it felt the next natural step; to take on a venue with beautifully finished bedrooms and quirky private dining spaces to create special events and experiences utilising Andrew’s skilled cooking.
Andrew Jones, Executive Chef
Andrew, with his solid experience of working in high-end London restaurants for Michelin starred chefs such as such Richard Corrigan and Claude Bosi, Andrew was ready to make his own mark when they moved back to their home county.
Andrew is keen to let the produce, rather than one chefs ego, dictate our menus. His drive is always towards getting hold of the best produce and presenting it with minimum fuss, thus offering our guests the best value for money while still enjoying the highest level of quality.
Hannah Springham, Operations Director
