We booked a table at the Joiners fairly last minute for NYE. We were not disappointed. Shared the seafood platter for sharer which was amazing & followed that by the chicken & the lamb main. Very cosy and welcoming inside & excellent service. Would definitely return.

We landed at this pub in search of a place to eat. In a nice spot, dog friendly with free wifi. Described as a gastro pub. We both chose prawn sandwich and a portion of chips. Along with a pint of beer and a bottle of sparkling water. The service is pleasant enough. Food not really very exciting, sandwich bread... More

A must visit for Sunday lunch. Atmosphere was great, service very friendly and efficient. Food was fabulous and beautifully cooked with a great choice. We're staying nearby for a family wedding and rounded off a perfect weekend. So good we returned later in the week for fish & chips, wow they were magnificent...best we have tasted. Will definitely be returning.

We stayed at the Joiner's arms as it was just around the corner from a wedding that we were attending and it was absolutely lovely! The manager in particular was incredibly helpful.

After a long walk on the beach with the two dogs and our son we were very pleased to stumble on the Joiners Arms. All made welcome (including 2 labradors), and a terrific meal had by all - the fish and chips are amazing, I've never seen a piece of fish so big. Will definitely recommend and would love to...
