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 have visited the Walpole Arms several times before and had heard about the new Tapas dishes. Having lived in Portugal and visited Spain quite often we had always delighted in the Tapas menus. The new menu food was excellent and the service as usual very good. We did however feel that the prices for the Tapas was extremely high. £4.95 for 5 Manchego crisps (which were fabulous). In our experience Tapas is always very good value and sadly this was not. Our table was not particularly good, being near the drafty door which is why I have marked the ambience down.

The new tapas menu is fabulous. The flavours were stunning and the portions quite generous. From the basics of the bread and aioili to the meatballs, patatas bravas or croquetas, every dish was delicious. I can't choose a favourite! The house Rioja was also a delight. We would have had more drinks if anyone had come back to ask. Service was OK, but could have been a bit warmer. It's early days for the new owners and menu so I'm sure it will get even better.

I don't think the food was quite as good as it used to be. We had lunch, and apparently they now do a sort of tapas, which we didn't know about. We had the special (not tapas!), and it was good but rather rich and the roast potatoes were disappointing. It needed green veg. And also I think there seem to be a lot of new and inexperienced staff. I rather missed the very wonderful ones from before, but perhaps they're being saved for evenings. They will learn, but way to go yet. Not quite as good overall as it used to be. Hope this was a glitch.

We had a lovely meal, my wife was surprised when I ordered five dishes for sharing but soon understood the concept of Tapas. Each dish was delivered to the table at just the right time and each was very tasty indeed. The staff were all very helpful and service was excellent. The Walpole arms was always a good venue for a bite to eat, now it has surpassed our expectations. We are both looking forward to return visit soon.

Our last visit before the pub is turned in to a Spanish themed pub. Service was very slow despite eating early! Only one waitress so not her fault at all. We come here all the time so know that it is not usually the case. Very sad to say goodbye to such a lovely place to eat so close to home.

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.
