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

We ate at the Gunton Arms on Saturday following a recommendation from a friend, and were completely blown away by the fantastic experience we had. It was truly excellent and we received fantastic service and sensational food. When we arrived, we were able to have a drink in the lovely bar before having dinner, and took our drinks outside to...

Gunton Arms has clean comfortable rooms excellent food and well trained attentive staff BUT it also has the most rebarbative artwork display ever to grace a public space. It is overtly racist with images of pigs heads over laid with negroid features. Revolting images of vomiting - defecating ladies and that is just the dining rooms. Elsewhere there are images... More

We went for lunch for my wife's birthday...The food is without doubt up there with the best and the service is second to none. The only downside is I can't sit and eat there every day!!!!! Thanks to all the team,a big fat 5 stars from us!

We visited this shabby chic charming hotel when coming all the way from Brazil for a wedding in the West Norfolk area. We were very surprised to find this tucked in hotel, overlooking a HUGE deer park. With no formal reception or staff we were welcomed by Marie who gave us the room keys that should stay in our possession... More

Great place to relax for a few days, great setting (deer park), beautifully decorated rooms, good food. The rooms are basic in some ways, no shower, no tv, no tea making facilities. However, there are several rooms for residents with tv, books and games and a tea station near the main kitchen. Whilst we were there the restaurant/pub was full... More

I wouldn’t normally write a review but I feel I should share. We live locally and the Gunton arms ticks so many boxes as a great place to eat. BUT the last two occasions i’ve been in there the staff have been so rude! I took my grandmother at the weekend and she felt the bar staff were so abrupt... More

Our previous meals in both the restaurant and bar have previously been average. However, the location is good, tempting a further bar meal, this August. The meal started with a bowl of MIXED olives, comprising 95% pitted green olives. When questioned about a 'mixture', the chef apologised saying that's what had been received in the jar. To follow, we had... More

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
