My wife and I had possibly the best Sunday roast ever at this lovely little pub. We called in for a drink initially and didn't expect to be able to find a table to eat as they all looked reserved, but on inquiring was told we could be squeezed in, which was great. i had the roast pork and my...

Rather elegant interior to ordinary looking pub. Food was excellent, nicely presented and well cooked. They are obviously targeting the higher end of the pub market. Friendly welcome and good service too. Only problem is the very restricted parking at the pub and nearby. Can be challenging at busy times.

Came to the Joiners Arms for food the night before a wedding at Newton Hall. The food was fantastic, the cocktails amazing and the hospitality incredible! The staff went so far out of their way to get us back to Newton Hall safely on a stormy night. Thank you! Can very highly recommend the Joiners Arms! Everything you would expect... More

The Joiners Arms has been a favourite of ours for some years now, and I would have submitted several five star reviews of previous visits if I had bothered to write at all. But the place was always ram-packed, as Jeremy Corbyn likes to say, so seemed to have little need of my endorsement. In my book The Joiners used... More

Called in here after asking a “local” for a traditional local pub. He named here with a curious expression on his face Arrived to find that it claims to be a “5 Star Gastro Pub” ( whatever the latter part of that is ) In reality it was shiny and glittery and unwelcoming, with a clientele that appeared to be...

We regularly visit The Joiners when in the area and have never been disappointed. The Sunday lunch was top quality beautifully prepared with a great range of vegetables. The staff are welcoming and efficient we visited with a toddler and nothing was too much trouble.

The menu said it was a big portion but nothing prepared us for the fish on the plate. Beautiful moist white fish with a thin batter - spot on My daughter had gammon - not your usual thin slice - thick and juicy and cooked perfectly
