Gunton Arms 👍GHG

The Gunton Arms, Norwich NR11 8TZ

This charming inn overlooks the 1,000 acre Gunton Estate deer park. The Gunton Arms was originally a shooting lodge, which served as a second house to Gunton Hall and was notorious for hanky-panky weekends (Lillie Langtry, the famous mistress of the Prince of Wales, was a frequent guest in the 1890s). Nowadays you can enjoy a tasty homemade snack over a game of pool or darts in the bar or make for a gnarled wood table by the fireplace in the flag-floored Elk Room. Dishes are fiercely seasonal and Stuart Tattersall cooks from local ingredients and seasonal produce. Venison from the deer park and beef from the local herd at Blickling are cooked over a large open fire in the Elk Room. The Gunton Arms also has its own seafood, mussels and Cromer crab are caught by local fishermen.
