The Gunton Arms

Opened October 2011, The Gunton Arms is a traditional pub with 12 bedrooms in an extensive historic park near Cromer in North Norfolk. The chef Stuart Tattersall (ex head chef at Mark Hix) cooks from local ingredients including venison from the surrounding deer park.


Ivor Braka bought the building in 2009, converting a country house hotel into a traditional pub. Robert Kime designed the bedrooms and interior. Stuart and Simone Tattersall, who formerly worked at Mark Hix’s restaurants in London are partners in the business. They bring with them the Hix ethos of using local, seasonal produce and a style of cooking which is vigorous and ingredient led. The Gunton Arms has its own venison. Seafood, mussels and Cromer crab are caught by local fishermen.

The rooms at The Gunton Arms are all designed by Robert Kime and have views over Gunton Park. The room formerly occupied in the 1890s by society beauty Lillie Langtry has photographs of her and her lover The Prince of Wales, who was later to be King Edward VII. The marble in the bathrooms was found in Egypt by Robert Kime and came out of derelict mansions in Alexandria.
