Danielle Bates began her career at The Dial on the 8th of December 2014 as a Chef de Partie and has progressed quickly; being promoted to senior Chef de Partie, junior Sous Chef and most recently Sous Chef all in just over 2 and a half years!

She enjoys working as part of the team at The Dial and really understands the importance of teamwork- in fact she says that the way the team works together is the best thing about The Dial.

In her spare time Danielle enjoys baking and decorating (extremely delicious!!) cakes.  She also loves going to car shows with her trusty MK4 Ford Escort!

Danielle was promoted to the position of Sous Chef on Monday  24th July, so congratulate her next time you see her!
