The pub is a beautiful setting with interesting decor. Some of the art was a little questionable, but the food & service were top notch. Couldn't fault the food, but the steak was on another level! A great night for a superb meal and a few beers.

Whilst out of sight from the main road and only accessible by foot, this unique pub/restaurant which also offers overnight bed & breakfast within the surrounding grounds of the Gunton Estate. We arrived by aeroplane after being granted special permission to use the private airstrip, but were told to watch out for the park deer that roam free across the...

Really warm and welcoming especially on a cloudy and damp day. Nice and busy on a Saturday lunchtime, good food, but the selection wasn't quite as good as the online sample menu. Staff were very helpful and friendly. A little too dark where I was seated. Overall a very good experience.

This place is amazing! The staff are all super efficient and friendly! The food is superb, we had a wonderful time! Our table in the restaurant was by the fire were the chef cooks all the meat, which is fascinating to watch - it's just a wonderful atmosphere! We can't wait to back!

I'm very conflicted about this place. My partner and I visited here a little while ago and, whilst the food was lovely (pricey, mind you. But very good) I cannot ignore the revolting art work that adorns the walls. People vomiting, defecating, engaging in sexual acts and the like, as well as racially offensive pieces. As an artist myself, I...

I have been going to Gunton Arms for the last 4 years and love it more each time I visit. I have been just for drink in the bar, stayed in their lovely, stylish rooms, celebrated by daughter's 21st birthday there and often popped in for just an impromptu lunch. It is a place which suits all occasions. It welcomes...

Listen, it's a nice pub in a country setting, but the food is what you could get in a lot of pubs in the area for a lot less money. The welcome was nothing special - you got the feeling that the staff were a bit bored. We had our dog with us and were sent into a side room...

Love this place. It has to be seen to be believed. It's a seriously stylish place with excellent food and wines plus a regular pub in the bargain as well. The ample seating outdoors is set in wonderful surroundings too. I can't recommend this place highly enough!

If you want somewhere different,are an art lover and love good food then this is the place for you to stay. Set in a deer park,as you enter the front door it is easy to imagine Poldark lounging against one of the fireplaces. The bar, the two dining rooms and the loos are awash with art work both traditional and...
