The Gunton Arms is a wonderful oddity in Norfolk, a traditional style pub serving top of the range food in a relaxed, modern setting. The restaurant is owned by an art dealer and this is reflected in the decor, it is filled with interesting pieces which add to the experience. Oh and those that gave it 1 star for the... More

I went to the Gunton Arms for a Christmas meal with colleagues from work. The setting is lovely and cosy with a warm atmoshere. My big problem is that the main meals do not come served with vegetables and have to be bought seperately. I find this really annoying as i like to eat a healthy balanced diet of which... More

We have just returned from a two day stay here. Totally different from what I had expected.None the worse for that. A lovely bar used largely by locals guests made to feel at home immediatly. Friendly staff. Great bedroom. Comfy lounge. Food fabulous. We had great fun here.

We didn't stay but visited for a wonderful Sunday lunch experience that satisfied the palates of a wide range of foodies. "Eclectic" Modern art may have shocked some of the party members but no one could complain about the standard of food and service. Excellent value for money too. Could do with some more external lighting as one of the... More

Just back from spending the weekend at the Gunton Arms. Stayed for two nights, great room with huge bed and bath. No TV in the room, which was a nice touch, music, supplied via a Roberts DAB radio. View from the room across the deer park with a fair few deer close to the pub each morning. Food was simply... More

We visited The Gunton Arms on a cold day and were very impressed .Log fires gave a warm welcome and it was delightful to have our food cooked over an open lg fire in the restaurant .Food and drink were very good and the premises are set in an attractive deer park .Well worth a visit.

We took a U.S. Customer for dinner and stayed the night and it was a fabulous stay. The staff were superb and really added to the overall experience. I'm already planning my next visit. They only have 8 (fab) rooms, so you can have the whole pub for yourself for big birthday parties.

Every wall is adorned with "art" but you may not enjoy your meal sitting next to a wall of drunks some spewing out their guts or the shock value of pornographic images. We slunk off to the private area - "residents" only for tea, we were driven off by the two large poorly trained dogs that decided to share our... More
