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.

Coming from a TV Directing background Hannah not only has strong visual and creative ideas but the drive and ability to make those visions and plans a reality. A natural “people person” and organiser, Hannah has a talent to lead projects; Much as she did when Directing TV film shoots, by getting the best out of people and delivering a brief.

Andrew; with his solid experience of working in high-end London restaurants for Michelin starred chefs such as such Richard Corrigan and Claude Bosi, was ready to make his own mark when they moved back to their home county.

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, Hannah’s drive and flair and a grand-old building.
