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.

    Very good ambience, food and beer.

    Was puzzled by your map. Pub is near to the DLR station, but on the map seemed some distance.

    The staff was very helpful with my Dad who is 82 on Wednesday they sorted out a seat with arms and sorted out a pudding which wasn't on the menu

    We had a frustrating start to our dining experience where there was unnecessary drama because they didn't have our Bookatable on their host sheet, the girl didn't need to make it an issue. If you know your restaurant uses Bookatable, expect people to use it. Thankfully she wasn't serving us and we had a lovely waitress (can't remember her name). Our meal was excellent and I had no complaints. Would definitely recommend.

    excellant food geat atmosphere
    however, our table although reserved, was next to a larger party dispite the restaurant being fairly empty and other smaller table were free - why cramp diners so close together?
