“Excellent food in comfortable surroundings!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012 via mobile

We had dinner here with friends pre-Christmas and the excellent menu lived up to expectations. The comfortable surroundings and friendly service meant a lovely evening was had by all. We will be back and are happy to recommend the Walpole Arms.

“Amazing food, atmosphere and service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

I took my husband for a birthday meal at the Walpole Arms and it was stunning on all levels. The food was divine, the service was fantastic, perfectly timed with bright, happy staff. The atmosphere was perfect. The christmas tree was beautiful, the fire was burning and the interior wood features were gorgeous. Very happy customer.

“Wonderful food and welcome...wish it was nearer to our home!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

We have just returned from a stay in a National Trust cottage on the Blickling estate. And every day we ate here...can't get higher praise than that! First impressions do count and this place looks so welcoming - smart and yet rustic. Log burner blazing away. Exposed brickwork and old beams. All recently restored. The sort of gastro pub you want close to your home...used by the locals and not just tourists, which is normally a good sign. We arrived with our well behaved black lab and she was welcomed with open arms. A suitable table was found and we devoured the menu....everything from the usual fish and chips and steak and kidney pie to the more exotic pheasant or black pudding. And the deserts were to die for. Really helpful staff as well...very highly recommended. We will be back...

“fantastic food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Have visited quite a few times since reopening with my wife and we really love it. The food is the star here, changing regularly and different styles with a range from traditional to modern. Particularly like the salt and pepper squid, beetroot salad, grouse and lots more. The only thing that sometimes lets things down is the service, it can be a little too relaxed, staff not knowing dishes, wine orders wrong, long waits for food to be cleared, just feels like it needs a bit of polishing or training? Having said this it is very friendly and we keep coming back. Overall we love it
