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 staff were excellent and the service was first class but we thought the menu was too restrictive. More choice is needed before we return

  • ((*** 18 April 2017 by Brian Macarthur from Norwich

    We were disappointed compared with our last visit. We paid £82 and could have had a Michelin standard meal in Norwich for less. the beef was disappointing and I was charged £2 for a shot of Cassis with my Kir.

Dessert was very disappointing. Bill was expensive for the quality

    We haven't been to the Walpole Arms for a few years and from the moment we walked through the door the staff were extremely pleasant and attentive. The menu was not overlong but was comprehensive and there was a good choice to tempt the palate.
