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.

We booked in here for a meal on a Thursday night. It's very remote and a little hidden away, which once you have found it , adds to the experience. The bar was busy, with drinkers and people ordering bar snacks, but the young lad behind the bar was efficient and served everyone swiftly and in the right order. Once... More

We stayed and dined here for a special birthday ocaasion - and were really impressed with the service, accommodation and quality of food. The hotel is steeped in history - during the 1890s a frequent visitor was Lillie Langtry, famous beauty and mistress of the future King Edward VII. Our room was nicely decorated in traditional style - and for... More

We visited the Gunton Arms for dinner, there were 10 of us for a 60th Birthday. The place is filled with interesting decor and artwork that ensure it is ultimately homely, cosy and warm. The first lovely surprise was seeing a not on the top of our menus saying 'Happy 60th Birthday' a very personal and kind touch. Secondly the... More
