We go to the Gunton Arms to eat fairly regularly as we have a house in North Norfolk. When it first opened a couple of years ago we were very excited as there is limited stylish eating places in the area. We have probably eaten there eight times, both at lunch and dinner. Sadly it has never been quite perfect!... More

Stayed in the superior room for two nights. Great location with several hundred deer staring at you. Our room was big and had a very nice bathroom with both bath and shower. We were right above the bar, but there was no problem with noise. Had dinner both nights. Was good, but not great, but hey this is a pub!... More

I have had a lovely two days here with my wife. What I love about the Gunton Arms is that it wears it's foodie credentials lightly, yet serves seriously delicious food, cooked by an impressive kitchen. There is fabulous theatre in watching the head chef cook on the fire in the Elk Room, yet there is also a quality and... More

What a wonderful place: situated in the corner of a deer park with no other houses in sight, takes you back in time. Sympathetically and tastefully restored but luxurious. Stayed in Parkin where the bed was undoubtedly the most comfortable I have ever slept in and the fixtures and fittings in the bathroom very special!. Dinner in the Elk room... More

Visiting for a mid-winter long weekend, as something to look forward, we left feeling all expectations had been superseded. Off-the-beaten track quirkiness, with timeless character and rustic charm that has been pulled together with artistic flair and an eclectic edge. Wonderful food - difficult not to indulge or take interior design inspiration. We can't wait to go back.

Having read reviews by Jay Rayner and others recently I was hoping for great things, but just got a nice pub meal. Booked a table via email for my boyfriends birthday and travelled down from Leeds. We arrived for our table at 7pm and was shown straight to our table in the smaller dining room. The bar are as we... More

Had a great weekend with friends, and the staff were fantastic. Drew, Lee, Simone, Stu, Rosie and many more whose names I forgot after a couple of bottles of Gigondas. Ivor plays a mean game of pool and took me on a tour of the artwork, which made up for my losing! Many thanks for an excellent weekend. Highly recommended.

Visited the Gunton Arms from strong recommendations from various people but I have to say I don't think I'll go back. The building is in a stunning location so they are fortunate there but the interior design is very unique and not for everyone. In my opinion the food and drinks are overpriced for what was an alright meal, nothing... More
