The weather may be warm, but autumn is drawing nearer and soon a Sunday Roast will be a welcome treat on a cold day out.

A cosy pub makes the ideal location for a delicious roast, so we asked Google where to find the best roast dinners in Norfolk.

These are the top-rated lunches in the region.

1. The Gunton Arms (4.7)

The award-winning gastropub is known for its high-quality food and was named one of the prettiest country inns in the UK.

Chef Stuart Tattersall cooks using local ingredients and seasonal produce, with venison from the deer park and beef sourced from a local herd at Blickling.

This well-known Norfolk culinary institution has been taken over by new owners Rachael and Jeremy Parke.

They are planning to stick to the pub's culinary roots but will create a more relaxed setting including in the "chill-out" garden room where guests can play vinyl and recline in comfortable armchairs.

Reviewers praise this local for its "excellent menu that has great food at a great price".

Another said they "can't rate the whole experience plus the quality and quantity of the food enough" and that they would "highly recommend a visit" to the village pub.
