Visited Saturday with family for lunch, we did not pre-book so were restricted to the bar menu and sat outside. It is a superb location, especially on a sunny day. The food was excellent, not your standard bar meals but all the better for it. Staff were friendly and food & drink were not as pricey as I feared, pretty... More

We ate in a private family room to celebrate a fortieth birthday. This room was excellent as it allowed the four children aged ten and under to amuse themselves away from the dining table before, between and after courses. this means no one else was disturbed and we could chat etc at ease. The food was excellent as were the... More

We took my sister from New Zealand here for her 60th birthday after wanting to visit ourselves for some time and had a delicious meal including yummy vegetarian fare in a some what meat orientated (by its very nature) restaurant. After reading some reviews of surly staff we could not have been looked after better by Lee who was at... More

What a find this place is! Just back from a night here for my wife's birthday, and it was great. The pub has a great vibe with some cracking music - and a real mix of clientele - locals, the country set, families and youngsters, all enjoying a drink in the large and welcoming bar area. The communal areas outside... More

An overblown claim but nevertheless one of the best experiences for some time. Wonderful deer park views in a fairly isolated spot, a pub with a lot of character. A constant open wood fire in the bar used each day for pan cooking steaks, chops and roast potatoes, helped make a great dining experience for good, wholesome food. The staff... More

If you like informality, quirkiness a slightly shabby but welcoming decore with young and efficient staff then I doubt that you will be disappointed. We have just returned from 2 days at the Arms and what a cracking place it is. Set in an extensive deer park with wonderful views and lots of deer who wander up close to the... More

I can't wait to go back to this beautiful place... from the minute you pull into the driveway the magic begins. The views are stunning, it appears you can see for ever over the beautiful parkland and there are deer roaming freely amongst the sculptures. The building is so inviting, just like a fairytale cottage. Once inside the decor and... More

This is the place to go with Damian Hirst, Lucien Freud and Tracey Ermin art adorning even the toilet walls! Went for Sunday lunch and will certainly return, loved it and if you like the park deer coming up to say Hi you might just love it too.

Have just had a one night stay at the Gunton Arms. And after eating what we did you wouldn't want to travel far after your dinner. But what an experience it was! We where very pleased to be seated in the Elk Room, a wonderful dining room with the large open fire where a chef busily cooks kilos of beef... More
