An historic building surrounded by the greenery of Royal Arsenal Riverside, Dial Arch is a wholly individual Young’s pub and restaurant in London. A chic main dining room, quaint pantry with open fire and al fresco terrace all come together to form this popular south-of-the-river drinking spot.

The Dial Arch food menu comes in many forms. The dining room menu offers up tasty options like the pan fried pheasant breast with port jus and the undeniably British, award-winning Young’s steak and ale pie with honey roasted vegetables and mash. The sandwich menu appeals to diners’ inner child with a fish finger and tartare option, while an individual flat bread menu offers Dingley Dell pulled pork alongside woodland mushroom with caramelised red onion and tarragon.

Sirloin of Riverside beef can be elected for Sunday lunch, while the bar menu features Young’s beer-battered haddock with triple-cooked chips. Bar snacks can be ordered on the massive, umbrella-covered terrace, which is the perfect place to enjoy an award-winning Young’s ale or a glass of carefully selected wine.

Dial Arch in London is a 5-minute walk from Woolwich Pier on the Thames. Closest station is Woolwich Arsenal Tube Station, also a 5-minute walk away.

    Our first visit but not our last.
    Food was wonderful and service was also excellent. Fabulous location. It was such a nice venue with all the different aspects of the various areas that you could either dine or just chill.
    Given the size of the premises and the number of customers we did not feel that staff were unable to cope or felt that we were made to wait any significant length of time.

    This venue was a great choice for my brothers birthday. He could see the football and the staff in particular sue and nick gave us a bigger room that was a bit more private even though we didn't have the large number it usually requires.

    Me and my partner came here for a cheeky date and absolutely loved it. We are regulars at the pub but have never eaten in the restaurant area and were pleasantly surprised. Our waitress (I think she was called Michelle) was amazing ... Very sweet and handled the fact that they had run out of a few things on the menu very well. I hope she gets recognised for her work. Needless to say we are planning our next evening out with you. Thanks!!

    Wonderful meal, staff very friendly and attentive, restaurant and pub interior great the only thing that let the place down was the toilets not the cleanest I've been in and apparently my wife said the ladies were the same, but yes we will definitely go back for another visit

    Waitress had just started and didn't know what she was doing. Didn't offer any drinks, said to go to the bar and order there. Food when it eventually came wasn't great either. I had good memories from the first time I was there, but I won't return now.
