We ordered the seafood platter to share for starters, roast beef and a veggie burger for our main meals. The platter was poorly presented, with the mussel... More

A very pleasant restaurant to visit with dark wood interior with old victorian type shades providing it with a nice cosy place to spend the evening. Excellent menu and very well prepared food where we chose to return for a second evening in what was a short stay for dinner as the menu was that varied. Service a bit mixed,... More

We spent two nights at the Joiners Arms in late February. We had been given vouchers for our stay as a Christmas gift, but found the price of bed and breakfast to be very reasonable. After our stay however, we felt that it could have been a lot more expensive and we would have been happy to pay! From the... More

Lovely staff, good food and more important to us very dog friendly. Great being able to sit anywhere in an eating establishment with our dog instead of being stuck in a corner like lepers . Been a couple of times already this year despite living over an hour away. Will definitely return .
