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 had a lovely Spanish tapas meal on the evening of Wednesday 14th October. A refreshing change from the usual country pub fare. Food was delicious and fairly priced. Recommend.

    Excellent tapas, very friendly staff, lovely atmosphere - a favourite pub of hours for many years that went downhill a few years ago, but after a few recent visits were pleased to see that it is now back to its very best - we will be regulars once more

    Set in a lovely ambience, tapas menu allowed us a varied choice. Even with the elements, battling against them, they managed to carry on. Pleasant & patient front of house staff, talented kitchen brigade. Good value for money, I would highly recommend the Walpole to others.

    Booked The Walpole as it is local to where we were staying, and noted it said ‘spanish’ on the information. Generally, I have been disappointed with tapas offerings. However, we were very impressed. Selection excellent. Portions good (ordered 2 each). Food delicious! Would highly recommend! Shame the fire went out!!
