Restaurant description

A traditional country pub serving modern British cuisine, The Walpole Arms dates back to the 18th century and sits in picturesque Norfolk countryside.

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.

    Excellent food, authentic Spanish tapas... Spanish chef and it shows. Waitresses could have been friendlier, and not cheap. Great location and setting. Would recommend

    The restaurant looked lovely, as it was all lit up for the evening, and the staff were very welcoming. We had not been to a Tapas restaurant before, so were unsure as to how much to order. We ordered 5 dishes between the 2 of us, which was plenty, and left room for dessert. The food was delicious and piping hot when it arrived. The whole evening was very enjoyable.

    Great old historic building in rural Norfolk used as a pub/restaurant, beautifully kitted out. The owner and all the staff are friendly and helpful. The speciality of the house is Tapas ( the owner is Spanish from Majorca )and we enjoyed very much the sharing tapas menu with lots of tasty dishes and great value. More than enough for two hungry people. Excellent range of wines and beers also. Highly recommended.
