Just returned from a wonderful weekend break at The Gunton Arms. After a busy week and ending work later than planned on the Friday afternoon we began our journey, and remembered we'd not booked a table for the evening when we made our reservation. My wife phoned to book the table, and was told that the restaurant was fully booked,... More

We had a fabulous two night stay at the Gunton Arms. Marvellous location in a quiet and picturesque deer park, lovely room with comfy bed and huge bathroom, great food and top rate service! We loved the ambience and understated luxury.

For a certain type of person I can see that this would be considered marvellous. However, my hackles rose as soon as I saw the red helicopter in the park outside. The immediate message I got from this is "this is not for you". (Just for context I am Norfolk born, University educated, and have lived in Norwich for 15... More

I have read a lot about this hotel in the press and I have had it on a list of places to try in Norfolk for a while. I feel that the press coverage has created an overhyped picture of the hotel which is essentially a pub with rooms rather than a boutique hotel. The pub is set in beautiful... More

i visited here with a party of 8 on a Saturday evening and we had a lovely time. I have read mixed reviews from here and was slightly worried that it would be full of London media types talking in loud voices. It was the complete opposite! The food was lovely. We had starters and mains with the stand outs... More

Despite having lived in Norfolk for the past ten or so years, up to now I've avoided this pub purely because I don't eat meat, and as their speciality is roasting different meats over an open fire in the dining room I mistakenly thought there wouldn't be much on the menu to interest me. How wrong I was. I met... More

My husband and I stayed here just one night this week. It's a very laid back sort of place with pleasant and attentive young staff. The room and bed were comfortable and it was quiet once the pub clientel had left. I'm not a fan of roll top baths and with just a hand held shower it was a bit... More

We happened upon this a little by accident as we were staying down the road at the Greenhouse B&B and our room wasn't ready, so we were directed here for a drink and some lunch until it was. It's like something out of an old romance novel - dramatic and beautiful setting, surrounded by deer and rolling countryside. There was... More

The setting, in a deer park, makes this a most unusual pub. I booked for 3, and confessed that 2 of us are veggies (not Normal for Norfolk). When we arrived at our seats, there were 2 vegetarian menus waiting for us. A jug of iced water arrived straight away, along with good bread and butter. The food was delicious... More

A wonderful Pub / Hotel modestly unpretentious with lots of style and many surprises. The staff are excellent and the service is beyond reproach. The owner has adorned the place with a superb and spectacular amount of modern art which is displayed in a very remarkable style. And by the way the food is excellent.
