Lovely bedrooms and bathrooms, this was true comfort with a dash of opulence. We stayed with friends overnight as a birthday/christmas present get away. It is lovely staying in a hotel where TV and kettle in the room is NOT king! We took full advantage of the private sitting rooms with great big comfortable sofas. Dinner was lovely, one of... More

The staff is groovy, the food lovely, the setting amazing. What more could -anyone- ask from a pub? It's officially my favourite pub in the area. When the weather is lovely, the outside bar and park is amazing to be in. Watching deer is not something one gets to do with a drink every day!

We went to the Gunton Arms with high expectations based on pictures on the website and a third party newspaper review. Sadly we were underwhelmed by the experience. Whilst the property is indeed located in a beautiful deer park, the park itself is private and so guests are not permitted to walk in it outside a very confined area; this... More

Pornographic images on walls and toilets. Slow shoddy service, staff have a real unhelpful attitude. Rustic is one word, dirty is another. Flies everywhere. Food tasty but over priced. Wine follows the 4 times cost formula, wine significantly better and cheaper at Morston Hall. This establishment needs a drastic overhaul to make it customer friendly.

Ate here on a Monday evening in early September and the restaurant was packed. Great atmosphere, great beer, fabulous meal. Had the lamb. Scrumptious. Chef took a great interest in the views of the customers. Had been discussing with my partner earlier that evening where our favourite meals had been and promptly put this one up there with the best.... More

For my birthday treat we searched the web looking for somewhere a bit special and different to stay in our county of Norfolk and meet up with our good friends. We duly arrived and found the setting is wonderful, interior comfortable, pleasant and individual. The staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a wonderful evening meal in the Elk Room... More

The Gunton Arms has been on my short list for a couple of years as the combination of the estate setting, wonderful eclectic decor & famed food reviews had whet my appetite! So when we telephoned during one of our regular stays in Blakeney to ask if we could visit for lunch & bring our dog when the response was... More

This is my favourite place to eat in North Norfolk. Incredible food in an amazing venue. Art lovers will be seriously impressed with original and unusual works. Roast chicken to share is awesome, best stuffing ever. Steaks and venison mixed grill cooked on huge open fireplace with giant Elk Antlers above. All round great experience. I haven't stayed in the... More

Went here after reading great reviews to find rude service from bar man, mould covered windows, filthy glassware & worst house wine ever. Perhaps the restaurant service is in a different league, but bar is a shocker
