The Experience

Don’t miss afternoon tea. Scones fresh from the oven are served on triple-tiered stands, and mismatched tea pots add to the fun. There’s a buzz about this place from the moment you step in. Staff are happy, friendly and keen, and a delightful eccentricity prevails.

The Queen Anne building dominates the market square of Reepham – sit on the terrace and watch the world go by. Back inside, a blackboard announces cookery workshops and spa treatments, and a listed staircase leads to bedrooms above.

Like much of Norfolk, Reepham is a place of curiosities. Discover its secret lanes, and its two churches built a few feet apart, or set off with a hamper to the Norfolk Broads, perhaps in a chauffeur-driven limousine – which can all be organised for you. Return to an elegant Norfolk-sourced meal, served beneath a vintage chandelier.

The Dial House provides excellent food and hospitality, and the enthusiastic welcome offered to its guests clearly reflects the tastes and ideals for which Hannah and Andrew are working so hard. The good humour between owners, staff and guests is tangible. For a weekend spent exploring both coast and Broads, there must be few places where you could eat so well or retire to bed in such comfort and style.

The neighbourhood

Reepham is in deepest Norfolk, surrounded by fields, meadows and hedgerows. There’s a weekly market in the square, and some interesting shops and delicatessens. Nearby are fishing lakes and a dinosaur park. You’re near Norwich (13 miles), the vast beaches - Cromer is 20 miles - and the Broads: the village of Horning is 20 miles. Walkers can head for the Marriott's Way, the track of the old railway line between Norwich and Aylsham.

Hannah Jones

Hannah and Andrew met in London, he a chef in top places, and she in television (the only woman director of Top Gear!). Both shared a dream of returning to Norfolk, and their passion for the community and the environment. They opened a restaurant in Norwich in 2018, and the Dial House swiftly followed. The hotel uses entirely renewable electricity, provides its own water, and is indeed becoming the community's hub.
