Sat beside the historic Arundel Castle, The Norfolk Arms Hotel is a former Georgian coaching inn that perfectly blends tradition with contemporary innovation. As well as an all-day menu, there is a snug bar area for chic drinks pre or post-dining.

Expertly prepared British classics on The Norfolk Arms Hotel menu include twice cooked Funtington belly pork with sour cherry reduction and creamed potatoes, as well as fish and chips battered with the hotel's signature Arundel Brewery beer. On the dessert side, there are delicate recipes like Chichester strawberry and rose water pavola, as well as honey and thyme panna cotta.

In the bar area, seasonally-changing cocktails are served alongside a full wine list. There is also a great selection of beers and ales from local breweries. Afternoon tea at The Norfolk Arms Hotel Arundel is served with an irresistible collection of home-baked treats.

Rich in history and tradition, The Norfolk Arms Hotel is moments from the River Arun, and just 14 minutes' walk from Arundel Rail Station.

    Food was excellent, although the starters we too small. The atmsphere and dining room was lovely, the service and staff very friendly and professional.

    Although the table my girlfriend and I had (by the window in the right hand corner) the smaller comfee chair was way too low, I asked for a more upright chair but was only offered a cushion which didn't really help. When eating the body has to be in an upright position, so unfortunatley by the time we finished I felt cramped and undigested! the chair probbably OK for a coffee table or lounge but is no way a restaurant chair.
    The food was good, wine a bit overpriced by about 7%.

    Polite, attentive staff. I went with my daughter. We both enjoyed ourselves. The food was marvellous and very plentiful. It is somewhere we will come back to. I do recommend to people to go and have afternoon tea.

    We had to find staff to help us when we arrived and took 10 minutes from sitting down to being served. The waitress was friendly once they did appear, but didn't explain our gift of afternoon tea at all. The hotel looked tired and half hearted for tea with uncomfortable and wobbly chairs and a cramped table. The tea was very basic and the cakes dry and uninspiring, better at the local garden centres! Such a shame as this was a hard earned Christmas present from a young relative so not happy for them to know of our disappointment.

    We enjoyed an evening meal from the Table d'Hote menu which was excellent value at £14.95 for three courses including a glass of Prosecco. We definitely made the right choice of hotel for our overnight stay in Arundel
