This was recommended to us by friends and we were lucky enough to get a cancellation booking. Really excellent Sunday lunch - delicious roast beef. Service just slightly slow (to be fair they had - rightly so - had a huge party the previous evening) so hence the 4 stars not 5, but the food was excellent as was the...

We came here for a family meal and every detail has clearly been taken into account. Everything is perfect: the ambiance, setting and, most importantly, the nosh. It is on the expensive side, but every meal was absolutely first class and without fault - the honey cheesecake was fantastic. I recommend getting one of the rump steaks, if not for...

Eight of us went there for dinner and we had a feast for every sense... the warmth of the open fire with the chef cooking the food, the warm reception, the smell of the deer steaks cooking, the contemporary art on the walls and of course the taste of the food. Can not recommend enough. We had red deer steaks...

So many problems with this place: noisy rooms, lack of customer service, inability to walk in the deer park. We stayed in the Langtry Room which is right above the bar and really noisy. I feel that they ought to warn potential guests of the levels of noise in the rooms above the bar because we certainly would have chosen...

I've been to the Gunton Arms several times over the last couple of years. Generally the food and service is amazing and I recommend it to everyone: it has the best tasting steak inside or outside of London (for me it blows Foxlow and Hawksmoor out the window, and on price too). However at our last visit I opted for...

Once you realise that this is a pub with rooms then you will not be disappointed. The Rib of Beef to share cooked in front of you on the open fire is to die for. Wines reasonably priced and staff very pleasant although service is not the fastest. Only pity is that you cannot walk in the park as it...

Visited for dinner with friends who were staying over. Beautiful stunning setting, deer roaming free all over the land. Food was excellent, could not finish our mains as there was so much which is never a bad thing. Ordered smoked salmon to start and we all shared the Cote de Bouef....absolutely delicious, we were all peeved we couldn't finish it...

Have been to the gunton arms several times with family and friends. This old hunting lodge revived by art dealer Ivan Brakar brings a new experience to having lunch. Seated in the Stag room you can witness great big cuts of meat being cooked over an open fire to perfection. Wonderful.
