Tris C left this review about Gunton Arms

This new pub opened in autumn 2011 by - I am informed - a local art dealer in what was a hunting lodge set in a 1,000-acre deer park. Multiple rooms with log fires host an eclectic decor mix from mounted animal heads to genuine artworks by the likes of Gilbert & George, Tracey Emin, Julian Opie and I'm sure many more. Also featured is a rather grand baronial fine dining room, a large, covered outdoor drinking area with open fire (naturally) and hotel rooms; this is a pub-cum-art gallery(!) of an altogther grander order and I wouldn't have been surprised if a fish pedicure were available somewhere on the premises.

My one visit was brief (a couple of drinks) but service seemed very friendly. The drinks selection is what you'd expect in a pub of this sort with local ales on pump. Prices seemed quite cheap by London standards, but I suspect are on the high side when compared locally. There's also a pool table and dartboard in frighteningly close proximitiy to one another and I seem to recall seeing a plasma TV showing sport (lose one point). Clientele is both thankfully mixed and friendly though I suspect most in attendance had probably driven here; there's a large car park situated away from the pub.

I would certainly come here again, not least because there's little choice in the area. However, those of a sensitive disposition should note that some of the artwork is rather sexually graphic; you have been warned.
