I discovered the Dial brunch about five weeks ago when we were looking for breakfast on a Saturday morning. I was so impressed that I have been for brunch twice since my original visit. The porridge was the best I have ever tasted - it's served with fresh fruit and honey. There are interesting items on the brunch menu but... More

The Dial is a great venue, always have had great service and good food and drinks. Really like the refurbishment looks stylish and is done to a high standard. Recommend to anyone.

I had visited this restaurant early in December for my friends 50th birthday, a nice meal for us four girlfiends and said I would like to come again for my partner's birthday in March, which we did on Saturday evening. When I rang to book the table for Saturday I explained I would like the table next to the display... More

Had a lovely meal here, mid week, four of us, they were fairly busy, but the service was faultless, a good menu with a varied choice and a sensible wine list. Have been back since and it was consistently good. Nice atmosphere with a buzz.

Really doesn't feel like this restaurant is in Burton. Very well designed and feels well thought out. Service was very good, with well presented staff who seemed to know their menu. The menu itself has something for everyone and would call it contemporary. The food was well presented but here is my only gripe - it was ever so slightly... More

I have visited the Dial, both for business meeting and meeting friends many times. However, this has always been at lunch time or early evening . I had booked a table for Saturday evening telling everyone how nice it would be. Unfortunately, the door man were very unfriendly as I entered making me feel uncomfortable. The place was very noisy... More

Went here for a family meal, the service was swift yet not rushed. The food was great. I thought that the early bird menu portions would be small but I was wrong. Great value. It's the first time I have been in since the refurb and I am impressed. I will be sure to have a drink with friends in... More

Food was awesome, very fresh and very tasty. Couldn't fault it one bit. The cocktails are pretty pricey, but all in all very impressed by the staff, setting and food.
