Let us be your playground

The Dial House is a market town restaurant with 8 iconic bedrooms situated in the heart of Norfolk, 30 mins from Norwich train station for transport links, 30 minutes from the North Norfolk coast and 30 minutes from the Norfolk broads National park. AA rated with 5 silver stars and 2 rosettes.

We won The Good Hotel Guide 2019 ‘Quirky Hotel’ award and enjoy living up to that label in all sorts of ways; from the antiques and objects for sale in each room to the eclectically styled bedrooms to our skilled chefs who work creatively on each varied event menu by celebrating the glorious abundance of local produce. Because of this we are proud to be a venue frequented by people who want to ensure their party is a one off.

Weddings and Parties

We’ve created two types of packages for you to peruse. Both have been discounted for 2019 and 2020 to celebrate their launch.

If you’d like your event to include some exciting features such as bespoke cakes, balloon art, magicians, seasonal flowers, bands or harpists then we work closely with a handful of spectacular suppliers and we’d love to introduce you to the people we rate best.


We pride ourselves on our award winning food and service and are happy to cater to whatever you might desire. With Exec chef Andrew jones at the helm, we can create a BBQ banquet, a suckling pig feast, a vegan ball, an afternoon tea buffet or a decadent local BBQ lobster and crab festival. Did we mention we like to cook over charcoal? We’ve prepared two tiers of menu to provide ideas but let your mind run wild.


We also work with a handful of local destinations to offer ‘experience stay’ packages. We can pack you off on local pursuits during your stay so that you can take the party on the road. So rather than ending your wedding or party after breakfast the next day, you can make the most of the county and nip off to take an alpaca for a trek on your way home ….
