For my birthday treat we searched the web looking for somewhere a bit special and different to stay in our county of Norfolk and meet up with our good friends. We duly arrived and found the setting is wonderful, interior comfortable, pleasant and individual. The staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a wonderful evening meal in the Elk Room... More

The Gunton Arms has been on my short list for a couple of years as the combination of the estate setting, wonderful eclectic decor & famed food reviews had whet my appetite! So when we telephoned during one of our regular stays in Blakeney to ask if we could visit for lunch & bring our dog when the response was... More

This is my favourite place to eat in North Norfolk. Incredible food in an amazing venue. Art lovers will be seriously impressed with original and unusual works. Roast chicken to share is awesome, best stuffing ever. Steaks and venison mixed grill cooked on huge open fireplace with giant Elk Antlers above. All round great experience. I haven't stayed in the... More

Went here after reading great reviews to find rude service from bar man, mould covered windows, filthy glassware & worst house wine ever. Perhaps the restaurant service is in a different league, but bar is a shocker

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

Most importantly backed up by unpretentious service , helpful staff and simply brilliant food . Frankie our dog loved it too ! Ps take time... More
