I have had a lovely two days here with my wife. What I love about the Gunton Arms is that it wears it's foodie credentials lightly, yet serves seriously delicious food, cooked by an impressive kitchen. There is fabulous theatre in watching the head chef cook on the fire in the Elk Room, yet there is also a quality and... More

What a wonderful place: situated in the corner of a deer park with no other houses in sight, takes you back in time. Sympathetically and tastefully restored but luxurious. Stayed in Parkin where the bed was undoubtedly the most comfortable I have ever slept in and the fixtures and fittings in the bathroom very special!. Dinner in the Elk room... More

Visiting for a mid-winter long weekend, as something to look forward, we left feeling all expectations had been superseded. Off-the-beaten track quirkiness, with timeless character and rustic charm that has been pulled together with artistic flair and an eclectic edge. Wonderful food - difficult not to indulge or take interior design inspiration. We can't wait to go back.

Having read reviews by Jay Rayner and others recently I was hoping for great things, but just got a nice pub meal. Booked a table via email for my boyfriends birthday and travelled down from Leeds. We arrived for our table at 7pm and was shown straight to our table in the smaller dining room. The bar are as we... More

Had a great weekend with friends, and the staff were fantastic. Drew, Lee, Simone, Stu, Rosie and many more whose names I forgot after a couple of bottles of Gigondas. Ivor plays a mean game of pool and took me on a tour of the artwork, which made up for my losing! Many thanks for an excellent weekend. Highly recommended.

Visited the Gunton Arms from strong recommendations from various people but I have to say I don't think I'll go back. The building is in a stunning location so they are fortunate there but the interior design is very unique and not for everyone. In my opinion the food and drinks are overpriced for what was an alright meal, nothing... More

This is a lovely place in a beautiful setting. The rooms, bar, restaurant and breakfast are fantastic. The staff on arrival were incredibly welcoming and encouraged us to treat the place like a home away from home. Everyone we encountered seemed genuinely friendly. However, on asking for our room keys on Saturday afternoon after spending the day out and about,... More

Dined here upon recommendations from friends! Menu not extensive, but definitely quality over quantity, fantastic food cooked on the fire. Great theatre! We will be back! Gunton park, fantastic location.

We stayed 3 nights. Food generally excellent, good open wine options Rooms on the corridor not very quiet Very poor WIFI connection Staff well trained and helpful Orange juice at breakfast not fresh-squeezed, should be in this price range. Great decoration except for very disturbing art in dining room (Paula Rego), putting me off my food! Welcoming little salons, nice... More
