We liked the look of the Joiners website, so decided to give it a whirl. The village of Bruntingthorpe is very nice and the pub is located at the end of a cul de sac, so parking was tricky. The place is decorated really tastefully, lots of beams and natural wood. The lady at front of house was very charming... More

I went with my wife and two friends who are new to the Lutterworth area for a Friday lunchtime meal. The speciality is fish and chips. As it should be for traditional fish and chips, it was nothing fancy but was freshly cooked and not too much batter - very tasty. The price was very reasonable and I'll definitely go... More

This place is a must when in the area. Can be a little tricky to find but well worth the effort. When you have been once you will come back

The welcome and service were excellent, as were the scallops and black pudding starter. The roquefort and avocado was bland. The medaillons of beef were good, but the liver was over-cooked and sinewy. Puddings a disappointment. Wine list limited. The cost was £90 for two of us; eaten here before and thought it expensive but good value. Didn't feel that... More

As we will be out of the country next Sunday our son reserved Sunday lunch yesterday and we were not disappointed. It was very busy, always a good sign, but our order and food were efficiently taken and served. They provided a small portion for our three year old granddaughter. The only small complaint would have been that our table... More

Have eaten here 4 times in total now. Lovely place, although not very big so book ahead if you are planning on more than 2 people just in case. Drinks are reasonably priced and good quality on the wine menu. The showcase really is the food, some of the best cooking I've had and we tend to eat out quite... More

I believe that we eat with our eyes therefore presentation is very important. My lamb shank looked absolutely unappetizing as the waitress brought it to our table, the way in which it was presented on the plate looked as though some one had thrown up in my plate and stuck a very dry lamb shank on top. A very odd... More
