On arrival we were not greeted and felt like a fish out of water, however we placed ourselves in front of a lovely fire and went to the bar and ordered a cava which was not very cold. After a while we went into the dining room and had a window seat in the elk room watching the deer in... More

My girlfriend and I visted in early Jan for an impromptu drink on our way to North Norfolk. We loved the atmosphere of the place so much I decided to take her back for a surprise birthday meal. All the staff and service were excellent especially George and his colleague behind the bar. On learning that it was my girlfriends... More

We chose this for our final meal out after an excellent weeks holiday in Norfolk. Lovely location that we had visited about 8 years ago. The 'makeover' wasn't really to our taste and parts took 'shabby chic' to a new level! The ambiance in the bar was spoiled by noisy pool players and we were pleased to escape to the... More

We had a brilliant weekend at the Gunton Arms, the rooms are beautifully designed, with some very desirable furniture! The Art in all of the downstairs rooms is superb. The guests sitting rooms with a roaring fire were perfect for lounging around with G&Ts. Dinner in the Elk room was delicious and thoughtful, and breakfast in the same room, with... More

The waitress's were very friendly and received great service. We ordered the Beef which was cooked to perfection. We thought there was a lot for the two of us and we thought a doggy bag would be in order but sadly our hounds went hungry. The vegetables and the roast potatoes alone would be worth going for. The venue is... More

Loved our stay at the lodge - loved everything about it from art stacked walls, the baying dear, warm and cultured atmosphere, staff, roll topped baths and horse hair soggy sofas. I only wish it was our local although we are not too far.

Popped in on the off chance between Christmas and New Year while staying in Norfolk. Fully booked for lunch but we managed to find a table in the bar to have a tasty sandwich and chips. As well as having a beautiful setting in a deer park, it had a nice, cosy feel to the place. Pool table and darts... More

The Gunton Arms is a wonderful oddity in Norfolk, a traditional style pub serving top of the range food in a relaxed, modern setting. The restaurant is owned by an art dealer and this is reflected in the decor, it is filled with interesting pieces which add to the experience. Oh and those that gave it 1 star for the... More

I went to the Gunton Arms for a Christmas meal with colleagues from work. The setting is lovely and cosy with a warm atmoshere. My big problem is that the main meals do not come served with vegetables and have to be bought seperately. I find this really annoying as i like to eat a healthy balanced diet of which... More
