4 of us just popped in here on our way to Cromer, and was surprised how good the place is. When we got there all tables in the restaurant were reserved, but the staff found us a table in the bar area. The menu was large and varied. Staff were very attentive and helpful. We ordered our food and was... More

Had dinner here on a Sunday evening. It was a little quiet so the service was prompt and pleasant. The dogs were allowed in which for us is a bonus. The location is stunning on a lovely sunny evening right in the deer park on the grounds of the old Gunton Hall. Food was good but not great which was... More

My husband and I went to the Gunton Arms after being recommended by a few different people. We were particularly told how great the steaks were so after a week of eating mainly seafood we were really looking forward to it. The setting was really stunning and the inside decor is certainly different. I had a big issue with our... More

What a lovely place to enjoy an early evening drink. We were lucky with the weather and were able to sit outside watching the deer as the sun set. There are several really nice outdoor areas one with a log fire (and blankets to keep out the chill) ,the pub inside is delightful. We had not booked in advance for... More

My wife and I, with another couple, went to the Gunton Arms today, for a mid-day meal. We entered the building into a lounge. The lounge furniture consisted of old, worn-out arm chairs and settees. I understand what shabby chic is, but this furniture was only fit for the restorer or the skip. The upholstery literally had holes in, with... More

I stayed at the Gunton Arms, and it exceeded my expectations on all fronts. Decorated in a stylish form of upmarket shabby chic, with a proliferation of artworks from the owners collection, it us charmingly conceived and executed . Friendly , knowledgeable and solicitous staff with no air of stuffiness, but ( all too rare these days) charming and courteous... More

We ate here last Saturday, the evening was re arranged by Simone, the Front of House Manager following a problem the previous weekend, she appeared genuinely disappointed in and did all she could to make reparations for us. We were greeted warmly on arrival, the Loch Duart smoked salmon starter was wonderful, my husband and I both had sirloin steaks,... More
