    One of my favourite places to go... The firsr time I had eaten there and was not left disappointed - the food menu of Tapas was a welcome change from Burgers and Steak. The food was cooked with perfection!

    Great atmosphere, considerate staff and delicious food. Couldn't have asked for more. Thank you for a lovely autumn evening we will come back again.

    We had a good lunch at The Walpole Arms, the tapas selection was great and the service excellent. We will definitely return again and would recommend it.

    The food was amazing! All thanks to the chef and staff of the Walpole Arms. We loved the Spanish menu. Thank you so much for your efforts. You deserve to see this pandemic through. We know you will, keep strong. Waiting staff very helpful and attentive. In tough times like we have we will support you!

    Instead of a traditional Sunday lunch we chose the set tapas - and the meal was delicious, generous and very satisfying. Definitely a good choice.

    Previously had great meals at this pub but not this Saturday most of the menu not available and although given a bottle of wine on the house this was a real disappointment with too many issues with each tapas to mention we will not return very expensive for the food produced,

    The tapas was amazing, proper Spanish dishes made by Spanish chefs. The pub is lovely with a large beer garden and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I totally recommend this place!

    The menu has changed since my last visit and the tapas menu was a lovely surprise. This has been a favourite restaurant for special occasions for a long time and we will certainly book again soon.

    This restaurant was a revelation! We went there expecting to have a traditional Sunday lunch, but instead enjoyed a mouth-wateringly tasty tapas selection. Everything was freshly cooked and attractively presented. I would highly recommend this Spanish experience in the heart of Norfolk!

    We were rather surprised by the menu because we made the booking based on what was shown on the internet and it was nothing like that, having changed to mainly Tapas. However, the food we chose was beautifully cooked and presented and the quantity generous. Some cushions would be useful to make the bench seats more comfortable but perhaps difficult to keep clean in view of Covid19.

    We had the tapas set menu. They swapped a dish with prawns that I didn’t want with no problem. The portions are very generous, and they accidentally forgot to bring us a plate, but we felt we’d had ample. Slightly more time to enjoy each plate whilst it’s hot would have been good. We were a little overwhelmed with plates and dishes on a small table, which was a little tiresome as there were empty tables in abundance! The food was lovely and probably a bit too generous In truth. Atmosphere was ok but the Covid rules felt a little soft: not terrible but the staff need to help diners a bit more. The one way system was there but we saw non compliance and then forgot it ourselves on exit. A timely reminder on settling up would have been useful. Would I go again? Yes but perhaps order a little less. Value for money? Probably a little overpriced! Perhaps less quantity and £5 less wd do it!

    The Walpole Arms has changed hands and now, along with British pub favourites serves authentic Spanish tapas which was excellent. We had the shared set tapas menu and was plentiful and delicious. A very nice meal and we would go back. The service was a little bit confused as the staff seemed to mix up our table with others but it didn't spoil our evening.

    Lovely place but my hubby ordered a pint of cider and only half a pint came then I ordered a steak with jacket potato and chips came instead. All sorted quickly, but service was slow and once the second waitress was in charge it was much better.

    We had a wonderful evening sitting in the beautiful gardens. The staff were very friendly and efficient. Even though all COVID measures were in place and followed, the atmosphere was very relaxed. The food was delicious.
