“Fantastic place”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

My partner and I got engaged at the weekend whilst away in Hunstanton. We decided to celebrate with a meal at the gin trap inn. A fantastic choice. On arrival the staff were really welcoming and we were pleasantly treated by both landlords. We were seated in a beautifully furnished conservatory on a table for two (very romantic). M partner ordered their home made 12oz burger with handmade chips and garnish, this was excellent and he couldn't rate it higher. I am more of a fussy eater and so went for the local sausages with mash (a good British classic) this was outstanding from presentation to taste. The waitress was really kind and asked us regularly if we were okay and needed anything. Overall our trip to the gin trap inn was fantastic and really made our engagement evening special. Will defiantly be returning and staying in one of their rooms.

We were staying locally in a cottage and a previous resident had left a note in the guest book suggesting the Gin Trap is worth a visit, how right they were.
The staff were all very friendly and I suspect the gent behind the bar was the landlord. The real ales were all in good condition and we sat in the oldy worldy part of the bar but there is a conservatory dining area for a more modern feel. As we were a touch damp from the Norfolk air we were ravenous and opted for tasty home-made burgers with proper chips, but there were plenty more intricate dishes available on the extensive menu.
We vowed to return and stay on our next visit.

We came here for dinner-the website does not do the pub justice-all the food was beautifully cooked and the helpings generous with a good variety of vegetables.Puddings were wonderful-delicious rice pud and tasty white chocolate and apricot bread and butter pudding.Service was prompt and friendly and we would love to return when we are next in the area. Well worth a visit.

We only visited the restaurant. The Gin Trap is a good, old-fashioned pub with an attached eating area and a small but relaxing beer garden. We both had the burger which was generously sized although we found that the taste of the herbs over-powered the taste of the meat. The beer was good and the pub makes a refreshing change from some of the more upmarket establishments nearer to the North Norfolk coast.

What a pleasant surprise- just shows you shouldn't judge a book by its cover.the outside of the Inn did not indicate what a great place this was to stay and eat! Only 3 bedrooms but beautifully appointed with a super large bathroom. The food was near perfection, excellent choice at breakfast and the restaurant meals were superb. They have chefs that really take a great pride in producing excellent meals.

This was recommended by The Neptune Inn and we stopped and had lunch there. Very good food. Fish in a crispy light beer batter with homemade tartar sauce and a delicious hamburger, the best my husband has had for a while and he is an American and knows his hamburgers!! Definitely worth a visit.

Delicious breakfast, very helpful staff, great location, great price, comfortable room, fantastic bathroom with lovely bath. Highly recommend this place. The area itself is beautiful and we visited local places around and about. There is a pitch and put and lovely beach walk nearby in Old Hunstanton and Snettisham is a nearby village where the Rose and Crown pub is very welcoming!!

Room Tip: We had room 3 which was perfect
