The Gunton Arms in Thorpe Market, near Cromer, has been featured on Estrella Damm's list of top gastropubs, placing at number 42.

It was the only Norfolk pub to be included for 2018.

This is not the first time the establishment has made the cut, having previously placed at number 7 in 2014 and number 8 in 2015.

Simone Tattersall, Director of The Guton Arms, said: 'It's amazing to be back in the top 50 gastropubs in the UK. It's an honour to be in the company of many prestigious pubs and we couldn't do it without out fantastic staff and valued support from customers.'
