A traditional country pub serving modern British cuisine, The Walpole Arms dates back to the 18th century and sits in picturesque Norfolk countryside. The pub is the only one in Norfolk to have won the coveted Michelin Bib Gourmand Prize for 10 years in a row.

The chefs have created a mouth-watering menu prepared using seasonal local produce. Favourites include chargrilled 21-day aged sirloin steak with mushrooms, oven-dried tomatoes, salad & triple-cooked chips, roast red pepper & mozzarella risotto ball with slow cooked tomato sauce, artichoke & shaved pecorino salad, and pan-fried guinea fowl breast & confit leg with a potato terrine, caramelised chicory & chorizo.

Complementing the Walpole Arms menu are an extensive wine list & a tempting dessert menu. The pub serves a traditional roast every Sunday, and quiz nights are held on Wednesdays.

The traditional bar area features Norfolk red brick, oak beams and a wood burner to keep you warm in those cold winter months. With a cosy seating area, the Garden Room opens out onto the vine-covered terrace, creating the perfect setting for al fresco dining.

The Walpole Arms in Norfolk is a 10-minute drive from Aylsham Rail Station.

    The food was excellent and the service was attentive and friendly. A little quiet, but that's mid-week in the end of Feb I guess. Will definitely be back soon.

    Had a very enjoyable meal, beautifully prepared and served, in a cosy but lively atmosphere. Staff were exceptional, nothing too much trouble. This has always been my favourite restaurant in Norfolk and it never fails to impress.

    Excellent food. Good to see a short menu, though lots of choice within it. Well chosen.

    We booked lunch for 5 people and although it was busy, the staff were really pleasant and good at their job. The food was, as usual, delicious; we had the pork chops and they were very tasty. They use produce from their own farm or locally-sourced, which adds provenance to the quality of their food. In fact we had such a lovely experience that we booked again for Sunday lunch. The Walpole Arms oozes old English charm and history, and I would thoroughly recommend it. My favourite dish so far is the sausage, mash and red cabbage - but I haven't been through the whole menu yet! If you have time, have a wander around the walls to see the photographs of local folk in past days.

    Very enjoyable, however few vegetarian meals on the menu - should be at least 25%

  • (((** 16 February 2017 by John Rush from north norfolk

    Staff excellent, but not a great deal of atmosphere in a less than full restaurant

    Coffee should have been included in the £50 a head price

    We went for the valentines taster menu and the food was amazing..... I'm a vegetarian and it was great to see the taster menu automatically offer veggie options. All courses were amazing but I particularly enjoyed 3 way broccoli (starter): tempura, charred, puree and the twist of stem pickled in orange that just brought a sweetness.. then the pineapple and Chilli soup with rum (pre-dessert) was fab as it was fresh and palette cleansing with a slight chilli burn after and finally a gorgeous dessert combining lemon mouse with gin and tonic jelly and lemon granite -yum yum!!!!! Not to mention very very good Hendricks with cucumber ice cubes and juniper berries!

    The staff were attentive and polite from the moment you arrived and topped it with a little iron heart as a valentines gift... Thoroughly recommend a visit - we will be returning

    Best service, lovely staff.
    Parsnips were best food. Only criticism - not enough gravy.
