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.

    We received favourable comments about the pub and went with great expectations for Sunday Lunch. However, it did not quite meet those expectations. The food was OK, but nothing special. When you select from the menu roast pork with apple sauce you expect the sauce to be served with the dish and not having to ask for it. However, the staff were very pleasant and helpful

    On a cold January day The Walpole Arms offered a warm welcome, delicious food, great ambience and lovely service. Cosy, Norfolk pub in a lovely village it is a great place to eat and drink. Wonderful local produce turned into yummy dishes we all left full and happy. Meat eaters, vegetarians and vegans catered for. We all had three courses sitting in front of the wood burner. Nothing was to much trouble for the lovely Becky and her team and a shout out to Elsie and Manuel on their first working day at the WP, they where great. We were delighted that one of our party's guests dear puppy was welcome to sit with us.

    New Year's Eve. Excellent food. Superb service. It was just a shame that for most of the meal, we had to endure the loud braying of a group of people seated in the far end by the woodburner. They were also constantly opening and closing the door to the car park. Not the restaurant's fault, but it didn't make for a very relaxing evening.
