We booked in here for a meal on a Thursday night. It's very remote and a little hidden away, which once you have found it , adds to the experience. The bar was busy, with drinkers and people ordering bar snacks, but the young lad behind the bar was efficient and served everyone swiftly and in the right order. Once... More

We stayed and dined here for a special birthday ocaasion - and were really impressed with the service, accommodation and quality of food. The hotel is steeped in history - during the 1890s a frequent visitor was Lillie Langtry, famous beauty and mistress of the future King Edward VII. Our room was nicely decorated in traditional style - and for... More

We visited the Gunton Arms for dinner, there were 10 of us for a 60th Birthday. The place is filled with interesting decor and artwork that ensure it is ultimately homely, cosy and warm. The first lovely surprise was seeing a not on the top of our menus saying 'Happy 60th Birthday' a very personal and kind touch. Secondly the... More

We had a one-night stay mid-week in May with dinner and breakfast for a special birthday celebration. We found there were several others staying on wedding anniversaries and birthday celebrations. It was very memorable. Neither of us had been there before. We arrived at about 4pm and immediately felt relaxed as we parked and walked through the gates - with... More

Humpy Dumpy ale in tip top condition, my Duck curry was good and my partners Ling fish fingers also good. In hindsight we probably should have pushed the boat out and had a steak which they cook over the fire. The location is fantastic, 100's of deer within easy view in the parkland. Inside they have a great selection of... More

Room quite small and very noisy at top of stairs with not enough room for luggage. Residents lounge has ambience but very owner-centric, rather than being about what the guests might like. No TV in room, tea and coffee making downstairs did not have any spoons both mornings I stayed. Very good food if somewhat expensive. Beer garden and deer... More

Set in beautiful parkland with herds of deer roaming around. The Gunton Arms is a quirky pub/inn and we stayed for two nights. The bedroom was small but clean and had all we needed. The bathroom was also small with a very spacious walk in shower. The guest lounge was very comfortable and the whole ambience was friendly, the staff... More

Excellent hotel, felt totally relaxed, it was lovely to sit in the residents lounge with drinks before dinner. The bedrooms are very comfortable. Food was very good, normally I am disappointed by steak in restaurants, but it was very, very good. Only downside was the white wines are a bit poor.
